i just cant do it anymore - December 7th 2009, 05:57 PM

hi im a junior in high school and im soo incredibly stressed out by the amoount of work. from the start of the year, ive been feeling like i have this pressure constantly building up inside me and the only way to get it out is by just relaxign during my breaks. but the thing is, during thanksgiving i just couldnt let any of the pressure go. and now i feel like im about to explode.

i told my mom and she realized after seeing me have a lot of panick attacks durign the past few days that iim not okay. i cant take school or anything anymore so i decided that im not going back (at least for the time being). my moms not happy about it but idk what to do. i mean i just cant take the work and two of my four teachers have this "no excuse" policy where i have to turn everything in on time regardless of being sick or anything. i missed four papers today, one more deadline, and two quizzes. i really cant take the pressure anymore.

i feel like i failed. i want to go on and do a lot of things but i really just dont feel like i can. theres a program i was gonna do instead of the second half of junior year where i was gonna go to the sierras and study issues going on in our world. i also have two youth groups and an art class outside of school that i really like but i just dont feel motivated enugh to go to school and do everything so i can then go do these activities i like. i also feel like i failed everyone i love. they all counted on me to go and finish school so then i could go off to an art college

i wanna do all these thigns but im scared that if the pressure just keeps on building up im gonna do somethign completely insane that could hurt me or someone around me. im scared. i dont know what to do. im losst. help?

You are close to your breaking point and you need to relieve the pressure. Spend sometime alone. Go to a movie or do something you like. You also need to take things slow, don't get into too much work, it will only hurt you. So spend some time alone, or at home from school and then slowly start going back and remember to take it slow and don't do too much. You don't need to hurt yourself.

I know how you feel -- I'm a junior too, and I was in the same situation for a while. Is there any possibility you can drop a class or two? I dropped one of my AP classes and started taking the "normal" class, and that helped me a lot. Making yourself sick and just avoiding school isn't going to help you -- you really need to find a way to change your situation. If your school has a counselor, maybe you should try talking to them. If they're any good at their job, they should be able to help you figure out what to do.

I am in the exact same boat as you. in fact i had three panic attacks today but thats besides the point.
I find the only ways that really work to relieve my pressure is crying (and i mean like sobbing), running/exercise, making a list of the things i have to get done then walking away from it for an hour or two and focusing my mind on something else then coming back to it and start with the easiest thing and i cross off each thing i get done. Take breaks (even long ones) between assignments. You may not get it done in a day but you will be able to get it done.

PM me if you ever want to talk/rant or anything. I know how you feel.

I hope this helps!!


PM me anytime
