Sabrina, do you know what exactly it is that is causing your anxiety?

Hey Sabrina,

I can totally relate so please know you're not alone. I used to OFTEN worry I was going crazy--but now I know it's just anxiety! Nothing more than that. It can get so scary, as it sounds like you know, because anxiety can make you feel like you're going to die or something. But you have to remember--it's just anxiety. Even though it feels like it could kill you, it can't. It's uncomfortable, but it can't hurt you.

Sometimes even that reminder that it's anxiety can be helpful. So if you start to worry that you're going crazy, you can stop and tell yourself, "This is not real, and I don't have to worry about this fear, because it's just anxiety and not reality". That reminder can be soooo helpful.

I do think, though, it would be helpful for you to have someone to talk to. Is there another adult in your life you could maybe talk to? School counselors are usually good places to start, or basically any adult at school. It sounds like you're really overwhelmed and scared and you deserve to have some support.

Hang in there, Sabrina, and know I'm here if you need anything!
