okay, so ive never done this before,
i'm still in school and im a perfectionist. i have to do the work the best i can or else i cant do it at all. last year i tried to not do well and it relieved the stress, but this year its my last year and my parents expect me to go to uni and.. i expect myself to do well. to do exceptionally well. and i know i can
the problem is, this is killing me. i feel so physically drained from all the things i feel like i should be doing
i feel constantly sick, everything i eat it makes me sick and i feel bloated and have digestive problems
last year i would go out drinking to forget, it would make me feel like it was over, maybe for the weekend and i got through the year
i hadn't had a panic attack in so long that i began to forget how bad they were, worse than any hangover, any drunken mistake
i used to be a happy child, but i think i had depression for a while, it was so sudden. came out of no where
and now, after councelling, which did nothing i have days, those odd days where i feel like everything is over, like nothing will get any better and it feels like the end of the world. today was one of those days
i have no one i can talk to my family judges me and all my friends blow it off and dont want to hear it.
i know life may get better but i dont want to wait this out any longer it has gone on too long

Good Morning Grace,


I am sorry to hear you are struggling and I do hope you can find someone to talk to about your feelings. Wondering if you have a counselor at school that you could talk with?



I really wish you could talk with one of your parents to let them know how you are feeling. Alcohol is never the answer to our anxiety or depression as it may make us feel ok for a bit but it is a false positive. Alcohol is a depressant and very probably making you feel worse so if you have not stopped the drinking do think about the negative impact alcohol has on your mental and physical health.



Please remember that you can overcome your problems with help...................look for help Grace. Perhaps through your church, your physician or a counselor.



Take care and know we are here and we support you.



Gentle Hugs,



Kitt

thank you for writing back, :)
yeah im sure my parents have an idea how im feeling cos im always angry with them
i never want to talk to them though, i like to be alone and shut myself in my room alot
there is a school councellor but, whenever i go everyone asks so many questionns and is suspicious why i go there
plus i feel like i should be doing work at school
i used to go to a councellor once a week but it always made me feel worse after talking to her
i know alcohol isnt a solution, and i know its bad for me but, it did make me feel better
i could act the way i wanted around people and relax for a bit
this time feels different than the other times i've had this problem, worse
like i dont want to get positve feelings again or something
i just feel like ineed to sleep for a really long time im so dead that all i want to do is sleep

Grace,


I am sorry to hear you are in a bad place right now but I still feel you need to reach out to someone and let them know how your feeling. If you have been in counseling in the past your parent's should understand if you need to seek out the guidance of a new counselor.



Please consider giving them a chance to help you.



Take care and gentle hugs,



Kitt

Grace I am sorry that I had to edit your post, as discussion or threats of suicide are not allowed on the forum. I hope you don't do anything rash, because I really think it would be a mistake. Below are some links you might find of help. Please reach out and get help, call your councelor and let them know how you are feeling. Let them know you need more time with them. Please just do not do anything to harm yourself. We do care.

(((((((Hugs))))))))) Glad to hear you are doing better and yes exercise can make us feel better and is a great stress reducer.


I wish you the best on your exams. Just remember to stay in the moment and not anticipate the worse case scenario. Imagine yourself doing well on the test and then just do it.
