Hopeful for a better future

I am only 17 and I have struggled with EXTREME anxiety and panic disorder along with depression for a very long time. I really just want to be and feel okay. I wish somebody could be a damn miracle worker and fix me but I am hopeful that my future will be better.

Hi, have you been to your docs, n explain how you feel, it doesn't mean you have to take tabs, sometimes just listening to a professional opinion helps, any thoughts why u feel like this, stay strong, the fact your on this site, is a good starting point x

Yeah I already go to therapy and am prescribed medications but with little success. It’s been a constant downward spiral. I’m no longer in school due to dropping out. I couldn’t be around people and I would have extreme panic attacks and leave school.

Yes and they do as well as they can to understand but it’s hard to really describe the way I feel.

I’m sorry you deal with this. I’m 29 but have had anxiety for years. But I had viral meningitis a couple years ago and it’s been extreme off and on since then. It’s very hard. I’m on medicine too but not sure how much it helps. Sometimes I just want to cry to my mom and have her hold me, at 29 years old I still need my mama.

I understand how you feel, my dad is in prison and my mom is on pills so I live with my grandparents. They are my rock and they do everything they can to make me feel better. Thank you for the support :)

It’s good that you have hope for the future and that you have your Grandparents. I know, I pray and dream of being fixed too. Someone once told me “We are more well than sick.” It’s true although it may not feel that way at times.

Yeah I feel that way sometimes, living with such extreme depression and anxiety really makes me appreciate a good day and it’s made me such a kind person and it’s done me a lot of good but other aspects are so difficult. This site is great, it’s good to talk to others.

I’m glad it made you kind and that you can really appreciate the good days. Sounds like you are good at looking on the bright side despite your pain. Yes it’s good to talk to others. I have trouble opening up but working on it.
