Hey Dominick, I'm sorry to hear that you're struggling with this. I don't think your mom would laugh at you, but if you're still afraid to tell her I would suggest your school counselor. Depending on what you tell them they might have to tell your mom anyway, but they can talk you through that and will also be able to connect you to counselors who can provide the help you need. I have never taken medication for my anxiety or depression, but I hope that you can get the help you want and need.

If you need a technique for anxiety I was taught to take deep breaths and repeat to myself "be calm" until the anxiety starts to go away.

I agree with Kate. I really don't think your mom would laugh at you. However, if you don't feel comfortable asking her for help, I suggest finding someone else to reach out to. It's important to reach out and get support from people you trust and professionals. You can try to get some counseling or you could talk with a trusted adult about your feelings. I hope everything works out!
