  • You should consider seeing your doctor, your not alone caraanne, theres millions of people who suffer with anxiety/depression, it's not impossible to fully recover and get your life back on track, your young and new to this, you need some support and guidance, I would seriously consider going to get advice from the doctor as they will know your medical history and be able to guide you in a suitable direction, in the meantime you can come here anytime to chat and find reassuring comfort from people who understand your struggle, big hugs, hang in there, you'll be ok xxx

  • Thank you soo much for being here for me in my time of need, it means alot. xx

  • Anytime, we're all here for you and we do understand caraanne, don't struggle with this alone, xxx

  • Hi,

    You are so young with so much life ahead you. I understand how hard it must be for you. Is there anyone like family or friends you can reach out to?

  • my family isn't very understanding of this sort of thing however i have spoken to my boyfriend about this as he suffers from depression himself but other than that no i cant im afraid.

  • You're about the same age I was when I realized the weird feelings I had were probably anxiety. Not everyone in my family believes in that sort of thing either. If you need to, make an excuse to see the doctor, then tell them what you're really there for when the doc comes in. That's how I finally did it when I worked up the courage to talk about it. The hardest thing for me has always been to admit to someone else what's going on with me. I could feel like my insides are tearing themselves apart but I'll smile and tell people I'm fine. At some point we have to surrender our pride and ask for help though, and it's the hardest thing!
