Hi Justen, I have suffered from anxiety and panic since I was 5 so i know what you are going through and so does everyone here. I currently take meds and CBT therapy. Have you ever tried any therapy? CBT therapy would be a great thing for you to do for yourself, you will learn coping skills and you'll be able to talk about what you go through with someone that will be able to help you. It gives me a little bit of peace knowing that I'm not hopeless and it really can get better. I know it's really hard being a teenager with panic and you have to grow up extra fast but remember that you are not alone. It's great that you recognize what's going on and are doing something about it.. you have to be a fighter. Please keep posting and let us know how you are doing.
Oh gosh, Justen, I am sorry you are dealing with all these feelings. I too suffer from severe anxiety, so bad that I have even been hospitalized for it.
Everyone is different but I defnitely could not deal with this without some medication. It takes trial and error to find the right meds but it's worth it in the end.
Good morning and welcome to HealingWell. I am going to post a link for you for a self help online free CBT program. Just click on the link.
Cognitive-behavioral therapy is based on the idea that our thoughts cause our feelings and behaviors, not external things, like people, situations, and events. The benefit of this fact is that we can change the way we think to feel / act better even if the situation does not change.
