Pretty nervous for tomorrow.

Im going back to regular school because cyber school just wasnt going well I was isolating myself from everyone. Im pretty nervous but im trying to stay positive but of course my brain is thinking everything is going to go wrong. Does anyone have any advice? My doctor gave me anxiety med to take before school to help with the first couple days I may try it.

Adamj, I think that's a great idea in going out to regular school. Isolation isn't good for anxious people. Believe it or not once you get through the first few days, being with others your age with make you not only feel less alone but alive. There's a world out there, experiences to discover and a social growth that you cannot get at home. I think if your doctor gave you some anxiety med it wouldn't be bad to use it for a few days, just until you feel comfortable in getting out of your comfort zone. Adamj, let us know how it goes for you. When will you be starting?

Nice one Adam 👏👏👍👍

Feel the fear and do it anyway and you will learn to cope with those experiences until it becomes second nature.

Best wishes young man!

I will pray that you find fun, peace, and friends at school. Don't forget that teachers are there to help you, so feel free to let them know about your anxiety so they can reassure you when needed. Lots of teachers have anxiety too! I'm one of them. You CAN do this, but you must seek out POSITIVE people and things at school, Ignore any negative people or situations. Find the fun in friendship. My fingers are crossed for you and you are covered in prayer. Let us know how it goes. Throw us a PM if you need support throughout the day. I have a good feeling this is going to be great for you. Throw a rubber band around your wrist, and snap it if you start to feel anxious and let it remind we are ALL behind you, understand you, and are cheering you on. Way to go, Adam.
