Unhappy Stress - November 5th 2018, 02:41 PM

Im really stressed, but there are not physical effects so no ones really taking a notice. Mentally I feel horrible, every school related thing freaks me out and i just run away from it. Ive actually considered doing something so I wouldnt have to go to school (ive told my mom but she justs asks if I really want to spend time at a mental hospital)
So im stuck no idea what to do.

I have a therapist but i haven't really talked about this with her... I know I should but I just struggle with telling people irl anything thats going on with myself.

im taking 2 aps, apush + ap physics 1. Ive expressed my struggles but my parents just say "oh u can do it you just need to put the effort in" cause I got As in all of my honors classes last year and the year before.

Idk whats happening but I know stress is affecting me horribly.

Some tips for dealing and preventing too much stress:
1. Take quick breaks when you need it. Going to the restroom for a quick breather is okay, just don't do this during lectures.
2. Take deep breaths, take a walk, play with a pet, take 5 to write or color.
3. When it comes to homework, plan out. And during homework time , listen to some music (preferably study soundtracks)
Defiantly talk to your therapist about it as well.

Will it be better if you take some break from all the stuff that bothers you?
Why not hang out with your friends, find a new hobby, and do something that you haven't tried before. I usually go for a drive or ride my bike whenever I feel like the world is not of my favor. I am hoping that you will be able to deal with it, I know you can.

I am sorry you are dealing with stress because it can be debilitating and like you said it can show no physical signs at all. I do however highly recommend that you bring the stressors in your life to your therapist. I know it is hard to talk about this sort of stuff, but keeping it all in is just adding to the stress you already have.

Meditation is another method that might help you when you are feeling stressed out. This can workout well at home and not really that great when in school. One thing for me is I have a contract set you with my School Counselor who is aware of my issues and whenever I am not feeling quite right no matter where it is(Even in the middle of a class) I get to go immediately to his office and she will make time for me. All my teachers are aware of this contract through my Mental Health IEP I have with the school. It just might be something you and your parents and school counselor might want to look into. It has helped me tremendously.

My therapist wants me to get some testing done, as she thinks it might be an attention disorder thats causing most of my problems... Im going to get testing done after Winter break (yea its later than I would like). So, Im starting to work on it :>

Like you are seeking attention and it is making you emotionally sick? I hope the testing helps figure out what is going on.

I try to deal with stress through sports and Hobbies, but three months ago I had a serious nervous breakdown and started depression. I didn't leave home and didn't even want to play sports. My mom bought me green mountain cbd and I tried to treat stress with it. I went through a course of treatment and now my mental health is better.

Have you tried running in the park or exercising more to combat stress. That is very helpful if you ask me. Also, don't go into games, you might get addicted to that. Alternatively, you can give CBD a try, for some suffering from anxiety and stress it has worked just right.

Hi there!

Thanks for opening up about how you feel.

Stressful periods hit all of us at some point or the other, so remember this - nothing is a bigger priority than our own mental health. Yes, studies, work, responsibilities are important, but not more than your mental health, particularly if they are an underlying cause behind your stress.

You know your situation best, but from what I can gather, I would highly advise you to take a break from your studies. Your school might have applications for extenuating circumstances which will permit you to take some time off on health grounds.

If that is not an option, you might want to look into why you are experiencing such high levels of stress - do you have more of a workload than before? In that case, you might want to drop some classes. Are there exams coming up? If so, you might want to make a timetable that will help you organise your time for more peace of mind for studying. It's okay not to be able to identify the exact cause right away, and so speaking with your therapist about this will definitely help.

I can understand how parents might not be able to relate with your situation (it's awful!), so perhaps you might want to get your therapist to speak with them directly?

There's always a way out! Remember that mental health is of utmost importance, so don't be afraid to seek help from a professional. You're young and have an amazing world waiting for you, so remember that this tough period will tide over.

Take some time to rest for a break, drink more water or warm milk, it helps you to relax.
