I was diagnosed with GAD at the ripe age of 9. My mother had once taken me to a mental health facility and there I talked to a therapist. I don't actually remember why I never went back and I was so young I didn't quite understand the questions she was asking me. Questions like "What do you think about that makes you so anxious?" and I would respond with something similar to "I don't know, it's random." I wasn't aware that was a symptom of that disorder, I was just young and confused and wondering why I kept having panic attacks for no correlated reason.
I'm 16 now and I haven't been back since. And I feel like it's getting worse. Most days I'm so tired and I have no motivation to do anything, I stay in my room avoiding socialization, societal expectations, and responsibilities. When I'm at school I hide in the bathroom during lunch because of the loud noises and the fear of people watching me eat. Sometimes when I'm staring at myself in a mirror I feel like I'm not *ME*. I always feel spaced out, lost, and confused. And I start to think real hard about existence like why am I here, do I exist, and does anything matter in the grand scheme of things if we're just going to die in the end?
I asked my mom several times if I could talk to a therapist but she always brushes me off and says "I don't need it". So I'm running out of options. What should I do?
