I've had a really hard week. I've had nightmares every night that end with me having severe anxiety attacks. Everything also feels very overwhelming, everything is too much. Touch and sound are particularly unbearable, I want to hide from them. I find myself wanting to be alone more, being able to spend hours in my room. Though I can't be completely alone, there needs to be someone else in the house (or else I'll have an anxiety attack) just not with me. When I'm feeling overwhelmed, I also find it extremely hard to speak. As in I don't want too, I can't.

I don't feel like myself anymore, and it's scary and confusing. I don't know what to do. My parents write off everything I say as just my anxiety, and I feel like my doctors aren't listening to me. I feel like I need more help but I don't know what for or how to get it. I just don't know what to do anymore.

Dear 1Brightstar, I'm sorry u r having such a tough time. Was this week really bad for a certain reason or did it just happen that way? I hope it helps to know I understand everything that u said about wanting to b home with someone in the house, not being heard, the over sensitivity. U have my support. I'm glad u were able to vent . Here's a Hug.

It's just a hard week. At least I haven't found any reason why it's been this bad. Although I do feel like my symptoms are getting worse, but maybe I'm just over reacting. Thanks for understanding, it does help to hear I'm not the only one.
