    What the hell is happening? Please help

    Hi all. Please take time to read I really need help. So I'm 15 years old, have been lifting for little over a year (14 months) and it has truly become a passion. So I have been bulking for around 2 months now after a small cut that I did after summer and I feel like ****. I'm around 75kg/165lbs and on a 3000kcal lean bulk more or less (I was tracking for a bit and now I'm intuitively eating) which consists of I would say 80% "clean" foods. I've been running a PPL split with 1 rest day a week with some cardio here and there for maybe around 6 months which I've been constantly adjusting and improving. From 4 months to around 10 months into the start of my lifting journey I've seen the best strength and visual gains of my entire ****ing life but the rate of my progress has slowly been decreasing since (which I guess is normal newbie gains and all but I could still be in that phase). Anyways fast forward to now my techique is improving every single workout and I'm constantly upping the intensity (I mean my effort output), no ego lifting literally 0 momentum however my pumps are almost non-existent, my sleep quality is ****, I haven't lost strength but have been gaining but really REALLY slowly, I have been having digestive problems, my muscles are looking as flat as ever. I'm sluggish, lazy, tired, moody and bloated. My sex drive is at an all time low. The motivation and fire I had in me is going away. This was a gradual process since around 2.5 months now (at the end of my mini cut and start of my bulk). I have suffered from overreaching once or twice in the last 3 months I think. Hell I felt better on my cut of 2000kcal than now and my pumps were better too. And I just came off a vacation of 2 weeks where I went all out on eating but kept training so that definitely didn't help cause I'm in the worst place right now. So what the actual **** is happening? Thank you for reading this long post and if you need additional info just tell me.

    How tall are you?

    Why did you cut when you're 15 years old?

    What are the other stressors in your life?

    Why are you counting calories when you're 15?
    The power of carbs compels me!

    I'm around 179cm/5'10. I cut because I let myself go during the summer, I didn't feel bad about eating what I wanted during the holidays just wanted to feel good and cut some fat for my bulk. My cut was cut short from 3 weeks because I realised I was just wasting time. Other stressors might be school, my future, moving soon and mental stuff like insecurities.
