Hi pops, Shy has given you some wonderful advice/suggestions here. I very much recall my senior year and how things started to go down hill for me...I felt more depressed then usual, anxious, stressed out and generally pushed the people closest to me away. I didn’t seek any sort of help at all I just went on and finished school moved out that summer and went away to college where it continued to get worse.
Your post really struck me as you seem to have a lot of insight as to what is going on and happening with you which is usually not the case with most teenagers. When you talk about dissociation in the fashion you have, also with having panic and anxiety attacks it would usually or normally be related to some sort of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Meaning that the person would have suffered some sort of trauma and there is an unknown trigger in the brain that is causing these attacks. Counseling is what helps these types of situations the most in conjunction with antianxiety medications if the doctor feels it is necessary. You said that you were in counseling two years ago? Perhaps you can sit down and just talk with your parents about how you are feeling. There doesn’t always have to be a reason or root cause for these things what is important is that you communicate to those who can get you some help. Shy had a great idea of printing out your post here...
Let us know how things go for you...we are always here
