Hi, I just signed up for this site today after hearing about it through the Crisis Text Line, and I think this is such an amazing website.
I'm a 17 year old senior in high school with panic/anxiety disorder, depression, Celiac Disease, Fibromyalgia, and Gastroparesis. I'm being tested for Ehler's Danlos Syndrome and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome as well. I use a walker everyday and I try to go to school as much as I can, but sometimes everything just becomes too much...some days I feel like I should just stop taking my medications and doing my treatments and just let my body kill itself. It's scary and it's not okay to think like this, but I don't know what to do.
I usually watch these two men on YouTube named Dan and Phil when I'm depressed. They help immensely, but when I'm stuck in school or in the hospital without Internet, there's no way to cheer myself up or distract myself from the agonizing pain.
I'm miserable, and I need something, anything, to keep me motivated to keep living.
Thank you for reading.
