Anxiety and Depression
It was only about 2 weeks ago that I was in the hospital for 3 weeks. I was there for Ulcerative Colitis, which was caused by anxiety and stress. I'm much too young to be having problems like this (I'm 12, almost 13) and only family knows about it. None of my friends know that I have anxiety or depression problems, that I'm on only a billion pills to help cope, or that my mom's already signed me up for meetings with a psychiatrist. I feel like other kids can make friends so easily, go out to the mall and hang out, or just don't have to worry as much as I do.
