Hello! I am new to the site and have been experiencing anxiety probably my whole life. It didn't get noticeable until I was about 13, at which point I also had an eating disorder. I was going to the doctors almost every couple of weeks because I felt sick and light headed every morning before school and whenever i'd go out with friends. However, once my doctor noticed my weight kept dropping and it wasn't due to a medical condition she told my mom& my mom stopped taking me to the doctors. Since then I silently dealt with my anxiety even though I didn't have a label for what was happening. When I turned 20 I had my first big panic attack which caused me to leave work and ask my dad to take me to urgent care. I finally had a label to my terrible feelings: anxiety. I'm a psych major so I had some idea that it was probably what I was dealing with but I also figured I could get through it alone, which isn't true. From there my panic attacks became increasingly worse so I decided to start seeing a therapist. I saw her for a little less than a year. My anxiety was almost absent for about a year. Recently, it came back and is 10 times worse. My panic attacks are so extreme I experience depersonalization and it is terrifying. I was lucky enough to find a psychologist at school who I can see, but the sessions are limited and I can only see him when I'm an enrolled student. I am doing my best to overcome my anxiety and panic attacks but at times I feel like giving up. I feel like my social support is very weak/ limited. My parents recently moved to texas and my older brother and boyfriend are really the only local people I have. I have high school friends that try to reconnect sometimes but I can't bring myself to hang out with them or talk to them for a long period of time. I'm doing my best to get through this but I often feel alone.
