School Time

Tomorrow I register for school and I'm freaking out. I have no classes with my friends and I'm one of those people that has to have at least one person that I know with me or else I'll be on edge. I'm afraid I won't have anyone that I know in my lunch hour. I'm afraid I'll have to eat alone which is one of my worst nightmares. I don't make new friends easily. I'm on the verge of panicking or a mental breakdown. I'm so not ready for this.

This was one of my worst nightmares come true.. years ago. Could you possibly get together with some of your friends before you start school and ask for support from them even if you don't get them in class you will pass them in the hall way probably and also maybe you all could join an after school activity. I went through this and ended up skipping school and ended up in a detention center all because I had social anxiety and fear of crowds. Luckily they don't treat people like that anymore just for having an illness. That was high school though. Are you in college? Speak also to someone in your school who helps people with personal problems. I hope your school year goes well. Peace.

I remember this feeling so well when I was in high school & college. I am so sorry you're having to deal with this. Remember you're not alone. Don't think the worst. Remember that you could always make new friends too. You might end up making some that you rather enjoy & can eat lunch with. Try not to focus too much on the fear, & think of the growth you will have. I didn't have any classes with any of my typical friends my junior or senior year, & I actually made new friends. They are still friends to this day. I wish you all the best. You can do this. <3

I also remember feeling like this and having gone through it, I discovered that there was no reason for me to think like that because I ended up talking to new people and finding common ground and I still had my friends. I understand that you don’t think you’re ready for this, I’d say talk to your friends about how you’re feeling maybe they’re going through the same thing. But also keep an open mind when you go to these classes. All the best.
