I have anxiety. Bad anxiety. As in, I hate leaving the house anxiety. I don't know how to tell my parents. I saw a psychologist a month who, but since I'm a minor, he can't prescribe me anything without my parents permission. So, I'm left making excuses not to leave the house and chewing spearmint gum to calm my panic attacks. I'm going back to school in about a week, and I don't know how I'll make it through the year. I don't want a mental illness to ruin my life. But I guess its going to. I can't tell my parents because they'll just say I'm getting worked up over nothing (Ah, the irony) and make fun of me. I don't even know anymore...

  • I know how you feel, I also have extreme anxiety. And when I told my parents they just told me that I was over reacting. I do all of the nervous habits like bite my nails, pull on my eye lashes. But my parents aren't your parents, maybe similar but it doesn't hurt to try. Have you ever thought that maybe it's your anxiety telling you that your parents won't care? I'm no doctor, but if I were you I would research anxiety. And start a journal every time you feel some sort of anxiety, and when you feel you have enough. Sit your parents down, and talk to them in a responsible and respectful matter. I know it's scary Hun, but if you really need help. You have to be at least willing to reach for it.
