How to go to school with anxiety?

Hi. Long story short i have been struggling with anxiety till last year. I skipped so much in school, and i'd very often come back home because of my terrible symptoms. Finally, summer break came and i thought ill get better. But I actually got worse, to the point I cannot step outside these symptoms are just scary. I can't handle this anymore. I live in a small country, we do not have therapists there. My family just doesn't think its that serious. Last year as i said, i could barely go to school . School is starting in exactlya month . My teacher knew about this, understood me, and sent me home whenever i didn't feel well, which was very often and i am still embarassed because im the only one who skips school so often. But nobody understands me. Why don't my family support me? Sometimes they would even say that i am faking the symptoms. Why would I be? They think I want to live like this? No, I'd absolutely give anything to go back to my normal self. So yeah, my point was how to make school less of a struggle? How do I go to school after 3 months of not leaving the house? What do I do about these symptoms that absolutely nothing helps. I really CANNOT go to school.. I don't have the energy i just feel like staying at home until one day i wake up and everything is okay again.

Hi Que, Sorry to hear that.. And Don't worry you are not alone in this world with these symptoms, Me and many are with you. And this is for sure you will recover.

The beauty of anxiety is that when other people look at you, you look very normal to them, and in real you are normal but these are the only your inner thoughts which are stopping you from going school.

Que, hope you can ride bicycle. Remember the first day you started to learn bicycle. you were afraid of falling down, but if you gave up and stop learning bicycle then you cannot learn, and if you didn't care about falling and if you continued learning then riding bicycle is nothing. That is it. Now balancing bicycle on two wheels is not an issue. Just like that If your thoughts say do not go to school you wont feel good, by any means go to school then after sometime these voices from your mind will go off. And you will enjoy going school. These are only the inner voices which stops you going out of home.

My prayers are with you, soon you will recover, and yes remember recovery is not an over night process is a slow process, you must have patience. Hope this helps much..
