I think I may be in love with my teacher, ...

I'm 15 and from the UK, where I'm in year 10. Since coming to high school, I've been very unhappy because I'm shy and have difficulty making friends, but last year I realized that I had feelings for my teacher. Since then, more than a year has passed, he still teaches me, and although I've tried to control my feelings, they've deepened into something more like love: I feel so nervous when I'm around him - I go all shaky, my heart pounds, my breathing becomes shallow, and recently, I've been feeling anxious and paranoid because of him. I think I am suffering from depression, as I feel like crying all the time and have suicidal thoughts daily. I feel like I'm on my way to a mental breakdown because I have no one to talk to about any of this. I've tried to forget about my teacher, but I can't; it is not a "crush", and I really need advice on what to do because my GCSEs are on the line, as well as my mental health. Please can you help me?
