I don't know - July 4th 2015, 04:45 AM

I've been gone for awhile. In that time, I've completed my first year of college, lost my virginity to a boy who didn't deserve it, was diagnosed with anxiety, and have dealt with more than a few family problems. Long story short- I'm lost and alone and don't know who to talk to anymore.

Hi, Amanda.

Welcome back to TeenHelp. I'm sorry about the tough things that you've been through since you've been gone. I can understand how all of that would be really hard for you and then to have to go through it alone. I was wondering if you would like to talk more about what's going on? Such as your family issues and how you've been feeling. Talking about your struggles can be helpful and we're more than happy to listen, okay? You're welcome to vent as much as you like.

I'd like to congratulate you for finishing your first year of college. That's a positive! How are you liking college so far? Could you reach out to people around campus and make new friends? Meeting new people and making new friends could be really good for you right now.

Sorry to hear that you were diagnosed with anxiety. Since you were diagnosed, are you still seeing your therapist/psychiatrist to help you find ways to manage your anxiety along with your current struggles? Therapy could help you a bit and also, you deserve to be able to reach out for help, Amanda. On that note, is there anyone in your life that you can go to for support, like a family member, close friend or even a counselor at your college maybe?

You seem to be having a hard time so I'm really glad you reached out here. I know you feel alone but you have us here at TeenHelp, okay? You can talk to us. We're here to listen and try to help so you don't have to go through this alone. Let me know if you need anything, and feel free to message me if you'd like someone to talk to.

Hi there,

Firstly, congratulations on completing your first year at college. That is such an achievement and something you should be really proud of yourself for. I know it's sometimes hard to be proud of yourself but you have done really well and deserve to recognize that and I hope by me saying this, will help you do so. So well done!

I am sorry you were diagnosed with anxiety but at least now you know what you are dealing with and can get the right treatment for it. I am assuming you are getting treatment for this? If not maybe that's something you want to look into? Because having anxiety can be a really hard thing to go through and you deserve help to learn to manage with it and learn how to control it and stay in control of it. I know it can be hard but you need to try and keep yourself grounded and calm. If you are ever struggling with your anxiety know that you can come here and talk to us about it and we'll try to help you with it.

Having family problems can be difficult and hard to go through but look, you've gotten through them and should be really proud of yourself for that. Talk to people at college, tutors and friends and don't be alone. Its scary yes but also helpful and you deserve the help. And if you want to talk about it more, know that we're here but also know that you deserve happiness and deserve to live.

Jessie

Everyone makes mistakes that they think they shouldnt forgive themselves over, but they should.. You'll always have us over here. and i know that it's tough to have anxiety, but the main thing to remember is to relax, and tell yourself that whatever you're dealing with, it gets better.Rather, i believe the real fact is that if you really, really and truly believe in yourself and stay strong, there's nothing you can't overcome.

We're all here. we'll all always be here. We care for you and we love you. You'll never be alone.....

And i want to hear about what you went through because it'll help us to help you. But i also want to point out that doubt is just something that's in your mind. If you believe in yourself and stay strong, there's no doubt that you can overcome any hesitation, any problem you face. And we'll be here to support you and help you to overcome everything.

I'll always be here too if you need support. And i reassure you, things just look bad for now. it gets better.


It's called a tunnel because there's ALWAYS a light at the end.



rant to me if there's anything!

Re: I don't know - July 5th 2015, 11:16 PM

Thank you everyone. I am getting treatment through medication for my anxiety. My family problems are endless. I don't live with my parents, but my grandparents. We recently moved and decided to leave my grandfather in a nursing home. He has dementia/Alzheimer's. They fight a lot, well fought a lot. My dad has a brain injury. My mom also lives 1500 miles away. Since we moved, my grandmother and I cannot stop fighting and it's killing me. It's making my anxiety fifty times worse and I barely want to leave the house. I've also been having a ton of problems with my stomach and the doctors can't find anything. They've looked at all the problem organs and everything. I'm just done

i think its time for you to go for a checkup and other places with more advanced medical treatments and diagnosis centres. And i think that its time for you to relax , and not overthink things too much. Remember that doubt like i like to mention is merely what you feel in the mind. If you relax and not let it get to you, then you'll be stronger.

Never stop believing in yourself, and think positively. Our encounters are supposed to make us better, stronger people, and that it will.
