I'm a 16 year old girl living with my grandparents. My mom was an abusive, alcoholic with bipolar disorder and my dad pretty much disowned me and started a new family so my grandparents took me in when i was about 6 years old. Since i was little i had anxiety, i became extremely attached to my grandma, was terrified to even go upstairs alone or sleep alone, i would throw trantrums and was scared to go to school and i had health anxiety. Now that i'm older, my general anxiety went away but now i have a vomiting phobia, ocd, social anxiety, depression, and possibly pstd and borderline personality disorder. But since i started highschool 2 years ago, my anxiety has gotten worse. I was put into home schooling freshman year cause i couldn't make it to school, i stopped eating because of my fear of getting sick. Sophmore year, i went back to school but went to an alternative school, only stayed for a couple months and then went back to home schooling. And now i just started junior year in real classes again but i have early dismissal so im there for about 4 hours and only have 3 classes. My eating is better and im doing better, but my physical anxiety symptoms are holding me back. Everyday i get tension headaches, brain zaps, feeling "unreal" or dissociated, nausea, irritable bowel syndrome, light headedness, fatigue, heart palpitations, etc. and they don't go away. And because i have a phobia of vomiting it makes it so much harder. I always run to my room and hide all day because of my anxiety symptoms, and im scared to go out or go to school because of the symptoms. Idk how to make them stop or go away. They come out of nowhere, sometimes i will even be occupied with something and i'll get dizzy or nauseous and i freak out because idk if its just anxiety or not. I've been to over 20 different therapists since i was like 6 and none have helped me, i just want to go to school and hangout with friends without feeling like shit from anxiety all the time. I started school two weeks ago and i've already skipped over 2 days of school. Any suggestions on these anxiety symptoms? please
