getting help for my anxiety (well trying)
I've never spoke to anyone apart from people in here, but i think i have social anxiety and it gets worse everyday and its got to the point where i struggle to focus on anything and i have multiple panic attacks a day. it started about a year and a half ago when i had just started secondary and i was always nervous and scared but i didn't think anything of it because everyone was obviously scared about going into secondary. it was about halfway through the year and i had the occasional panic attack, still didn't think anything of it. that year had finished and it was the summer of 2019 so i started worrying about the next school year and what classes id be put in and who would be in them for the entire of summer i was scared about it instead of enjoying summer. the new school year had started and i started realising that it wasn't normal to be having panic attacks everyday and worry as much as i do, so i researched everything that was happening to me and came up with the idea that i have anxiety, about October last year i signed up to the mix and it has honestly helped me quite a bit. i'm starting to open up and have almost talked to my pastoral care teacher about it several times and i know almost isn't that much but before i joined here i wouldn't have even dreamt of it. i know its going to take a long time, but i cant wait till the day i actually tell her because honestly i feel like the world is spinning around me and its on a constant loop that cant be stopped.
