I've been suffering from anxiety for about 2 years now. I can't pinpoint one exact cause of it but it's been getting progressively worse. My mom doesn't live with me and I feel like her and my stepdad are not on good terms anymore and it scares me very much. I'm scared she will be stranded over 1,000 miles away and I won't be able to help her. I think that this plays a major role in my anxiety. Also, I live with my dad and its only him and me in the house. I have to worry about transportation (gas money or money for when the truck breaks), food, and other house related items (toiletries, clothes detergent, etc.) I cant really talk to my dad about it because he had an incident that mentally handicapped him. He doesnt process things as normal people do and i think this adds a significant amount of stress as well. I have gone to a professional only once and within my session I felt absolutely hopeless. Anxiety has absolutely taken over my life. I can't eat because I have this overwhelming nausea feeling when I even think about food. I can't sleep properly because my mind won't shut off. My thoughts are constantly racing and I always think about the bad and what can go wrong. Everything in my life has gone bad like my truck braking and I'm now left without any transportation, I have few to none I can talk to about this, my mom and stepdad fought very violently the last day I was with them, I'm always at home, and I stress about school. I've have been getting horrible panic attacks at random. At first it was as little as one every 3-4 months, now I feel like I can have one at anytime. I feel like my whole day is dedicated to distracting myself so I'm not right on the edge of having a meltdown. Im 17 years old and I feel like I'm already grown and I hate it. Please someone help me. Please I can't deal with these feelings. I wake up nervous, throughout the day it gets worse, and I fall asleep to my panic attacks. This isn't how a person should ever live. Please can someone tell me how to be even a fraction of what is considered normal. Please help me.
