Don't really know what to do anymore... - February 8th 2010, 03:15 AM

Lately, I don't even know what to do anymore. When I'm at school, I feel really anxious and panicked, and like I'm trapped with no way out. I get really faint and have difficulty breathing, and I try everything to stop it but I can't. I have missed more than a month of school because of this issue, I dread the idea of going because of these panic attacks (or at least, I think they might be). I feel comfortable and fine pretty much anywhere else, but when I'm in a classroom I feel trapped, almost claustrophobic. What do you think this is? And what should I do about it? More importantly, what should I do with my issue of going to school? I'll admit that I hate going because of what I've been dealing with there recently. There's nothing that triggers it, really, it just starts randomly...I just freak out. I really don't think my family really believes me, either, they just think I don't want to go to school and I'm making something up. Advice? Please, I really need help with this. I don't know what I'm doing with myself.

Katelyn,

Since I can never really talk to you about this in person without fighting with you, I'm going to post something here!

I honestly think that you should try talking to your counselor. I know that you've been considering doing school online too, but I think you should at least explore your other options. You say that the anxiety gets worse when you are in the classroom. Do you think that maybe you could go in to school and do most of your work in the counselors office, away from any classroom? That way, there won't be as many people in the room with you, and you might find that this makes you less anxious. You could try going to maybe one or two classes a day, but if it gets to nerve racking for you, you could simply retreat back to the counselor's office. This seems like a better idea than removing yourself from the school completely, seeing as doing school online would cost money if you did not have a doctor's note.

I think it's something to start with, at least. I mean, why not try it? It might work out for you, and if it doesn't then you can try exploring your other options.

I think that I might want to talk to someone about this problem... like a psychologist who can help me deal with it ... but for now I really don't know what to do. I don't know if they'd let me do work in the counselor's office, I mean sometimes you have to be in the class to hear the lesson instead of just doing your work right away. So I'm really not sure...

Well, you would obviously have to ask. There's nothing wrong with seeing a psychologist, but you need to have a plan for school and not just expect a doctors note that excuses you for your absences and gives you permission to do school online. I think that you should start seeing someone, and talk to your counselor at school and find out what your options are. Try to solve things to the best of your ability before completely relying on someone else to do it for you.
