Ok, I am 16. I have been experiencing symptoms for 2 years now. It started out as joint pain in 1 or 2 places. Then, quickly migrated to all over. After I had foot surgery, 2 weeks later my symptoms progressed. I had some anxiety and depression. 
 
Since then, it has gotten a lot worse. I don't like going places. Being around a bunch of people scares me. I don't like to go out. Or do anything I used to. I used to be very active and I played school sports and lived outside constantly. That has all changed over these past few years. Which you can imagine how hard it is for me to have to go to school everyday. I can't get up early without getting sick. Because, I sleep a whole lot and when I have school I can't sleep at all so that makes a huge impact on my day. And, I hate being in a class with people. I don't like being around people. I can't be around but 2 or 3 of my friends at a time. I don't like groups. Or speaking out loud. I have a really hard time talking to people in person. And I worry about the smallest things all the time.
 
Now, it has gotten so bad I often scare myself. I worry what it will be like if it keeps getting worse. I have been to many doctors for my joint pain and such and they have never found anything. I haven't told them about my depression or anxiety because they already think I am crazy and I haven't went back since it has gotten this bad.
 
Lately, I get depressed constantly. I worry constantly. Sometimes I am ok if I am very distracted. It usually gets really bad at night. A few nights ago I had a scare that was so much worse than anything I have ever experienced.
 
It started off like usual, just crying wondering why I always have to feel like that and can't be my old self again. I ended up in my bathroom floor in the corner in the dark crying, like usual. But, then it got much worse. I was crying so much I wasn't even breathing except every once in a while I would breath in very quickly. And I just had a lot of thoughts like I couldn't go on being that way anymore. I felt like I was someone else.
 
I would look out my door into my room and wonder who that person is that lives in that room. I didn't feel the same. I got really scared of myself. I had racing thoughts that really scared me. That has never happened before.
 
This lasted about 2 hours. It was really scary and I had never experienced anything that bad before. I just felt so incredibly scared. But, afterwards I felt like I was scared for no reason. It was really strange.
 
Sorry this is so long. I usually post in Fibromyalgia(although I am not sure if I have that). A friend suggested I post here, so I did. Well, any opinions or anything would be really appreciated. Thanks so much!

Hey, i just want to say it is very brave of you to post here. Welcome to the HW family, the first time i posted here i was 15, the people here are incredibly supportive and helpful they have gotten me thru a lot. It sounds like you have some issues with your anxiety and depression, i know it can be scary to tell your Dr. these things but in the long run it will help you a lot. YOU ARE NOT CRAZY, no doctor or other reasonable person would accuse you as such. As a teenager (only a few years older then you) i'm still quite familar with the changes that we all experience, anxiety/depression certainly doesn't lighten the load, try not to focus too much on who you were, and more on who you are and who you will become, this won't go away over night, stay strong, best of luck to you.

PEACE - Z

Hello and Welcome to Healing Well and the Anxiety and Panic Forum.

Depression is a strong mood involving sadness, discouragement, despair, or hopelessness that lasts for weeks, months, or even longer.

I am so sorry that you are in so much pain and sadness. I do not know if you have talked to your parents about your feelings yet but you should. I feel you need to see your physician ASAP.
 
There are a number of treatment options for depression in teenagers, including one-on-one talk therapy, group or family therapy, and medication.

Talk therapy is often a good initial treatment for mild to moderate cases of depression. Over the course of therapy, your  depression may resolve. If it doesn’t, medication may be warranted.

If you feel you need help please call this number:

1-800-273-TALK

Hi tennisdoc09. Welcome to HW. (:

I'm 15 here and I face some of the problems that you have. I lost interest and passion for many things and it's like I'm not myself. Since I don't really understand what I'm going through now and is seeking help too, I‘m sorry that I don't really have any advice that I can give.

However, just to let you know that I'll be here supporting you. (: I am sure the others here will support you too and help you as far as possible. :D Stay with us. ;)

lots of love,
Jaslyn

hey there_

You are not going crazy. know that! People who go crazy do not know they're going crazy. If you have a feel that you are going crazy, its pretty much safe to say you're not -- even though it feels that way. Sounds like you had a panic attack! Anxiety builds up and panic can occur. They're awful, but the more you learn about them, the less scary they become.

A couple things to know, if you have another attack.
1. You are not dying
2. You are not going crazy
3. You are safe!
4. You might feel like you're having a heart attack, you're not.
5. You will feel really scared, and thats completely normal and know that its OK to feel this way.
6. Dont beat yourself up or wonder whats wrong with you, Panic attacks are very common.
7. You should see a psychiatrist or a doctor you trust
8. Keep posting here, and let us know how you feel!

You found a great place and resource to empower yourself. I've had panic attacks on and off for the past 5 years or so. The more i learned about them, the less sever the effects have become for me. I'm currently having them EVERY morning for the past 10 days now. And i have no idea why! its all sub-conscience / biological and stuff. Anyways, hang tight.

We're all here to help! And we all experienced these horrifying feelings.

Keep posting man, and hang in there!!!!

Kitt offers great advice. I'd like to add that it wouldn't hurt to change doctors. The ones you've been going to will not think you're "crazy", but it might help you feel better about getting a fresh start, so to speak.

When I was a little younger than you I went through a similar period. Ironically, I was involved in a car accident that ended my tennis career. Then I got really depressed and, looking back, I think I also lost some of what I considered to be my identity and then developed a social anxiety problem. It got pretty bad at times, but from what you describe I think your problem may be worse. I somehow worked out of it on my own and went on to be a "star" baseball player for a two seasons before succumbing to rock n' roll, haha.

The point is, it can get better. Seek the advice of a good doctor and you will find your strength.

Good Luck,
D

Wow, thanks so much you guys.
 
I know I need to talk to my parents, but when I try telling my mom she tells me to stop talking crazy. I think because I am a teenager she doesn't take me serious only because she thinks I am trying to be dramatic. I am not when I tell her, I am 100% serious with her an I tell her that, but she doesn't accept that. I can understand from her point, but she can't from mine. I just recently told my best friend. I was so afraid she would look at me differently and not treat me the same, but so far she has done a good job. I made her promise not to tell anyone. She is the only person I have told. Except for people on here and stuff.
 
But, I can't get help until my mom comes to. I am going to try to talk to our school counselor when I get some time. I figure then maybe she can talk to my parents or something. That would be a step.
 
I do have Social Anxiety. Anything social scares me. I worry a lot. Obviously. Things that never bothered me before. I used to be funny and outgoing. I am outgoing some-what and funny at times, but it isn't the same. I used to be the life of the party. Now I wouldn't be caught dead at a party. I didn't even have a Sweet 16 party! Nope, all I wanted was to stay home by myself.
 
It is so hard to go to school due to that. Classrooms, speaking out loud, all that I can't do. I am going to have to speak out loud and the last couple times I did that I hyperventilated, my heart was racing out of my body, I was terrified, and shaking, thought I was going to die! It is so terrifying, but I can't say anything I just have to brave it because technically I haven't diagnosed so I can tell my teachers that. Things like that I have to have a doctors note so right now that wont work!
 
Well, I really appreciate the replies. I try my best to stay positive when I can. I try to do things that keep my mind occupied. I try my best to just live with it accept it because I know getting rid of it isn't going to be easy. So, Thanks to all!!!

OMG!!!! You are so amazing. It's incredible to read what you are saying and i truly mean that. Your outlook is incredible! Its so positive and refreshing to hear! I wish i was a strong as you and i'm twice your age :).

I hear what you saying about you moms. Its hard for them to except that their child might have a "problem" (its not really, but they think it is). So i think its easy for them to not take you too seriously. I'm not sure of your situation, but i'm sure she loves you very much. And it seems like you can understand that. I was REALLY lucky because my mom has Anxiety and Panic disorder so she is very understanding of the situation and we almost bond because of this. I could also be unlucky, cause they say there are some genetic reasons for this stuff too sometimes :).

Talking to your counselor sounds like a wonderful idea. Really smart and proactive! There is no doubt in my mind you will get through this and fast! I hope you can talk to someone soon. You seem very smart, and on the right path!.

Keep writing here! You're inspirational! I really like reading your posts, and am sorry that you are suffering, but the positive outlook you have is remarkable.

Hang in there!!!
Dan

Wow, thanks. Never thought of myself as inspirational! :-)

I know my mom cares and loves me and all, but when it comes to me having a problem mentally, she can't accept it.

My parents all always bragging about me. How smart I am, my grades, my goals in life, how much I want to be a doctor and everything. And I have started early. To me education is the most important thing and thats what I would like to be able to focus on. It's a challenge with all of my problems trying not to think about them or just feeling like I can go to school and do work.

Sometimes I can't think straight and stuff and that is very difficult in school, especially test days! Right now, sleep is the biggest thing affecting how I feel everyday. During the summer I slept around 16 hours a day! I could get that much if I went to sleep when the bell rang at 3 in the afternoon to go home and got up at 7:55 when the bell to start school rings! I can't go to sleep when I get home because of home work and everything. So, it is really tough to balance it so that I get enough sleep to where I can go to school and, hopefully, not get to sick.

Sorry, I am going on and on. Gues I just need to vent! Well, thanks for being here! I really appreciate all the help and support!

Hey there!

Keep writing and venting, this is the place to do that so dont feel guilty. Plus, you're not really venting, just expressing yourself in a really positive way. Feel good about yourself for being able to be expressive and courageous. I had a really hard time knowing and expressing myself (and still do now) at your age so i think its really cool. I used to act bad to get the attention i needed, instead of talking about my problems. I sought attention and expectance from peers (class clown) to avoid my problems and help boost myself esteem. I didn't know it at the time, but looking back i can see it now.

I totally hear you about you folks. They're so proud of you. The thing i find really interesting is that you can and will be whatever you want, and if you become a doctor you would be really amazing because you have first hand experience in a specific area. So no matter what type of doctor you wish to become, you will have the strength and knowledge to help other people -- its pretty awesome (even though going through it right now sucks).

Do you think its hard to concentrate during test days because of anxiety? Sometimes its hard to know, but is it like you mind is all over the place and you just cant seem to focus? Or do you feel really tired on those days, and thats making it hard to concentrate. I'm only asking outta curiosity, so you dont have to answer if its uncomfortable to you or you dont feel like it :).

I'm trying to learn as much as i can about Panic and Anxiety, since i have it so bad, and the more I learn the better things off i seem to be.

Also, when i was 16 I was already self medicating with alcohol and other drugs. Knowing what i do know, that was such a huge setback for me. I wish i had better self control or wasnt seeking acceptance from certain people at the time. It really effected my adult life as the alcohol and other stuff didnt stop until a my mid 20's. Thats why I think you are inspiring. I ran from my problems, i acted out and self medicated, all because i was just scared to be me. And here you are, facing very difficult situations head on! You're awesome!

Keep us posted!
Dan

Thanks! :-)
 
On test days I feel like I am so worried about them that I don't sleep, so I am more tired. When I am tired(almost always) I can't think clearly. Everything seems spaced out. And I study for the test and I know everything and can ace. But, while taking the test I just get kind of lost. Although, I still do excellent on the test.(most of the time). I think that is mostly anxiety.
 
Sometimes its hard for me to focus and pay attention in class because I am tired and feel spaced out. I feel like I am incapable of doing anything. I slept during homeroom yesterday, I was so tired I fell right to sleep! My one friend who I told was telling my other friends I just didn't feel good. So, I am glad she can understand now that I have told her. Of course, it is hard because no one else can understand and they don't know exactly what I mean by 'I don't feel good'.
 
I just wish I could tell everyone. So, everyone would stay of my case and finally understand why I can't do things or why I don't feel like doing things. I have to make up excuses all the time because I don't tell people. It's like my life is a lie. I get so tired of living this way and just want to yell it out at people. I know I would feel better afterwards! I just can't get the courage. Or I have the courage and my anxiety over-rides it!
 
Well, I guess that is all for now. Thanks so much, I really appreciate it! :-)

Olivia, I had been feeling better these past days, but that all changed this morning. I felt horrible. I wasn't going to go to school, but I made myself. And today our bellwork question in English was, 'If you died this afternoon with no way to communicate to anyone, what would you regret not telling someone? And, why haven't you told them?" Of course, you probably know what I wrote. I would regret not telling everyone (my friends and family) how I really feel on the inside.
 
I am so tired of holding it all in. I hate staying to myself. I WANT everyone to know. My friends, family, and everyone else around me don't know who I am. They don't know the 'real' me. Why can't I just tell them? I want to so bad, but I can't. I have no idea what is holding me back. I guess it is anxiety and fear.
 
I have decided to write a letter to my school counselor explains everything. That way I don't have to say everything out loud. Then, I am going to give it to her to read and we will go from there I guess. I have to think of every way possible to tell people. I am so tired of it being this way. I just want people to know so I don't feel like I have to hide all the time. So, I am going to try really really hard to write that letter and get it to her. I think that step will relieve a lot of pressure. At least I hope it will. I know this is the right thing to do, but I don't know if I can handle it. BUT, I also know if I want to get better, it is a step I HAVE to take.
 
Well, thanks so much. I appreciate you guys being here. Thank you so much.

Hey Tennis!
 
You know, you don't really have to feel bad about it cause you're really not alone. (:  Your problems are SO SO SO similar to mine. I care a lot about academics, commitments and everything. I get all the mind blanks and worry a lot for tests, yet, I usually do good for them. Seriously, I kind of see myself saying all those that you're posted! Cause it's like so similar to me.
 
Maybe we can share more with each other. ;)  And, help each other out?
 
This is how I finally managed to speak to my school counsellor:
I broke down in front of the teacher, not like I can control it, and asked him to get me the school counsellor. There, that's how I started to talk to the school counsellor.
 
I took me A LOT to get some help now. Although I think that I'm still feeling terrible sometimes.
 
Till then, take care! Love ya!
 
lots of love,
Jaslyn (:

Thanks Jas!

I know I am not alone, at least in the world. But, here, I don't know of anyone personally who has gone through this. I know people all around probably suffer from the same thing, but you can never tell. I stay to myself and hold it in. I 'act' happy in school so no one knows, but even my friends have noticed the change in me, because I don't take part in anything and never feel up to doing stuff like I used to. So, I know I am not alone, I just feel that way.

Today, I wrote a letter explaining everything to my school counselor. I went to her office to give it to her and everything! Unfortunately, she had already left, but at least I did it! I am going to try again tomorrow! That's a BIG step for me, I think.

Well, I have to go, homework. Thanks! And yes, Jas, I wouldn't mind talking to you more often! It's always nice to talk to someone who can understand and relate so well! Thanks!

Yeah! I agree! Like there are billions of people in the world, you know that you ain't the only one going through this or doing this. Just that you may feel odd if the people you know are not like this. I 'acted' happy like what you mention. But I think I'm so used to bottling up that I 'act' happy subconciously. I smile a lot when I talk. Most of the time. But sometimes, I don't think there's a reason to smile. I smile especially when I have trouble answering someone questions or couldn't express what I want to say. My friends and everyone around did notice me change, but maybe not my family. Teachers start asking if I'm okay cause I looked really stressed or worn out. Now, my classmates noticed it too. Indeed, I don't take part in anything now and do things reluctantly, half-heartedly most of the time. I am upset by that kind of attitude, but I can't seem to help it. I think I've been handing up very sloppy work and all.
 
I'm glad to hear that you've wrote the letter to explain everything! I think if I were to write, it'll be rather long. =X  I hope tomorrow is the day where you start to get some help. ((:
 
It's great that I've met you here! I wish we were in the same school, then things can be so much easier! hehe. You're welcome, and thank you too!
 
lots of love,

WOW! That entire paragraph you wrote described me!! I totally agree with everything. Except my school work hasn't really been sloppy. That is the only thing I work as hard as possible on. I used to not have to work to do my school work. It all came natural, but now I have to push myself to get everything done, and I still do really good on MOST things. I have found though that I have to try harder though. My teachers or classmates don't notice the change, but my friends do.

I went to the counselor's office and she was there. I didn't know what to say so I just said,'As my counselor it is ok that I tell you something personal right?' And she said yes of course. I said, 'In that case, here you go.' And gave her the letter. I was so scared. She opened it and was like close the door. And I was reluctant. All I could get out was 'no, actually I am going to...' and pointed out the door. She was like do you want me to read it later. And I said,' Well, just not right now." Thats really all I could get out. I was shaking and couldn't talk or say everything I wanted calmly. I got really hot and I could feel my face turning so red. She was like, 'Are you going to be ok tonight?' And I said yes. And she said,"well, is it ok if we talk tomorrow?' By this point I could hardly say anything so I just got out 'yes' the best I could. She could tell I was so scared and nervous.

BUT, I did it. It took me a while to get my voice back and be able to talk. When I talked it was like I was taking breaths inbetween each letter I said or something. And I was SO hot, scared, and totally nervous, but I kept thinking how good it was.

I can't believe I actually did it. I haven't stopped thinking about it since. I did it about 30 minutes before school was out and when I got on the bus, I sat with my friend and the first thing she said to me was, 'You aren't happy today." She can always tell when something is wrong. When I am really down or worried she can tell.

Well, I don't know what to say. I have a headache thinking about it. I can't believe I actually gave her the letter to read. That is going to change everything so much. I am shocked. Unbelieveable. I think it is so great that I did it, but I am SO scared. I braved it though. I gave it to her! I did it!

Thanks SO much!! I could NEVER have done that without the encouragement and support of everyone on here! Thank you guys SO SO MUCH!!!

You have a wonderful spirit for one so young and I am feeling really old. :)

Thank you so much. I gave the letter to her. It was front and back! I ran out of space so I didn't explain everything in full detail, but I told her everything. I was so nervous I couldn't talk to her then, but she said we could talk tomorrow and I said yes so...I did it!

Hola Tennis! (:
 
Maybe my school work isn't that sloppy, but I think it is. =X  Anyway, I'm really happy that you succeeded in seeking help from your school counsellor! Try to feel comfortable with her and tell her everything you want to say. ((:
 
I got a lot of support and encouragement from here too! Or not, I don't know what will happen now. =X
 
Now, I'm quite sick of explaining everything to everyone. As in, when someone asks me something, I got to reply. Usually, it's related to all these problems. So, they'll go on 'why?' and 'how?' and everything. I'm quite sick of repeating the same old things to everyone. I don't wish to lie to them about things either. Oh wells.
 
Things will become better soon. (:
 
love,
Jaslyn

I talked with my counselor today for a little more than 45 minutes. I was so scared and nervous at first and could barely talk. My mouth was dry, and my hands were the opposite! My heart was pounding. I did however enjoy it. As it went on, somethings I could talk about more than others. The others I just said yes or no the best I could. We talked about alot of stuff and she was very understanding and I could tell she really wanted to do everything she could to help me. She gave me alot to think about also.

I have to kepp some journals for the next week, for sleep and how I feel during the day, and go talk to her again in a week. I am actually looking forward to it. I enjoyed talking to her. It was scary and all, but I knew I was doing the right thing. A few things I was uncomfortable talking about and didn't say the things I should have, but I think it will be easier next time!

For once, I actually cant wait til next week to talk to her again! I feel like I am finally do something to help myself! It was such a huge step! I am starting to feel more comfortable about it all.

Well, homework is calling my name! I have to stay on my schedule so... I just wanted to let everyone know how it went! Thanks so much to all of you for supporting me and encouraging me to do the right thing!!! THANKS!

Hey Tennis!
 
I'm so glad to hear from you! It's great that you went to your school counsellor today and talk a lot! haha. When I first went to my 1st school counsellor [I changed to another one cause I preferred talking to him], she gave me a chart to fill up my feelings and what I was doing at that moment so that she can monitor how my mood changes and what cause it to change.
 
I guess you'll be feeling really great really soon! ((:
 
Have a great day!
Hola everyone! :D

Well, I hope I will feel better. I am not sure just talking to her is going to make everything ok. I like talking to her because then I feel like I don't have to hold everything in anymore. But, I still have to get rid of the real issue. So, I think it will be a while. But, I am counting down the days until I get to go talk to her again! I can't wait. It was so good getting to talk to someone in person and I felt like I learned more about myself because she asked me questions I had never thought of before. So, she really gave me alot to think about. And I like that! So, I just have to wait. Time will tell I guess!

Hi tennis (:
 
You will feel better. (:  I think talking to your school counsellor will help. In the next few sessions, I guess she will start to help you in your problems. When she help you in your problems, you'll probably feel better. :D

You guys really are a lot alike. A support group within a support group! It's good that two people can find each other like that.

Best of luck to both of you. You're both really intelligent and driven. That's good but it can also be a curse! Ya gotta learn how to be the master of your own intellect or it'll make you miserable. Or at least that's my experience.

Again, best wishes.
