hi, before i start im 17, in college surrounded by loads of other people my age etc.
Over the last 2-3 years ive had what i think is anxiety and maybe depression, but maybe i just get sad about being so anxious all the time i dont know.
I always feel anxious and well, i dont really know, i dont really know how i should feel, ( i know that sounds stupid but honestly its killing me) i feel fatigued too much and so on, very rarely happy.
For the past couple years even though ive managed to get some really good friends but to everyone else ive been known as a bit "off" or "odd" because of the simple fact that up until recently i couldnt communicate with people properly, even now i really struggle. Every time i was walking with another person id feel so scared that it was awkward, it was such a horrid feeling i would never wish that upon anyone.
I cant help but look at the ground in a group, kick stuff on the ground, fidget, sometimes even slur my words because i panic.
one of biggest things of all for me is just not knowing what to say, like ill be in a conversation or something and no words would come to my head, and ill panic and get paranoid, to be honest the reason i think i cant come up with anything to say is cos i think and panic way too much about the fact that im not saying anything, but i cant stop panicking.
i just think that im not always meant to feel like this, its even weird when im on my own, i feel some what nervous.
I really just want to to go away now, even though its gotten better (and people have noticed and think im alright) I still feel horrid on the inside.
Please can someone give me some advice, does anyone else feel this way?
i feel lost
