  • Do you think mental health should be talked about in schools?

    In school we have a personal/social education class. We did a small block on eating disorders focusing on anorexia. We did nothing at all on mental health and I think it would seriously help people to understand! My friends have absolutely no clue about what I'm going through on a daily basis, especially in school and I find it hard to explain because I'm not a teacher. It would help to combat some of the stigma attached in the young generation at least.
  • I'm stuck

    Lately I've been feeling stuck, like I'm not improving. I'm not getting worse either. But it seems like I've been doing better. But I'm not sure if it's because I am getting better and the working on myself is actually doing something. Or I'm only feeling like I'm doing better because the main trigger for my anxiety and depression is momentarily gone. I just don't know what to do. The working on myself is expressing my emotions and feelings more, and trying to reach out to my friends. I've been figuring out what Happens during an attack and what helps. I know myself pretty well in that area. But I want to be able to do more then just coping with it. I want it to get less. I only have no idea how
  • if i check into a mental hospital, will i have to redo this school year? (junior)

    if i check into a mental hospital right now, with less than a month of school left, will i have to redo this (junior) year? it won't help me do anything but escape from my family. with my evil brother (and i'm not being immature, he actually physically and mentally abuses me constantly) home from college for the summer, i can't stay here.
  • Is there homeschooling for people with anxiety?

    I was planning on getting homeschooled this year but I'm unable to find any good recourses of teaching. I know it's hard to do but I was looking for a Christian homeschool teacher... But do they have homeschooling for anxiety kids?
  • School with anxitey

    For the past two years I've done online school due to my mental illnesses, agrophobia and emetophbia. I'm starting public school again this year, and if high school wasn't hard enough. I'm terrified of seeing, hearing, etc of getting sick so I don't know how I'm going to get through that. I'm anxious of simply seeing the people I left for online school as I've drifted away from them. Overall I don't want to mess up.
  • Trouble remembering/retaining info

    I have so much trouble retaining information I learn from school...I take detailed notes but cannot retain the suggestions besides reading them over, making acronyms/phrases, etc? Does anyone else struggle with this?
  • what can I do?

    I have got exams in a few weeks and right now I am so anxious and panicky a lot of the time. For instance I will be in class and my throat will clog up and make me feel like I am going to be sick and I cope for a while then suddenly I feel like I need to get out of the classroom. I have tried breathing techniques but they do not work.
  • What do you worry most about?

    I am making a zine for the counseling center here at school that focuses on college students with anxiety disorders. I personally have G.A.D. and this has contributed to a lot of the content in the zine but I would like some outside input. I want this zine to help those who don't suffer from an anxiety disorder understand what its like. I often struggle to explain how it feels to my husband and my family. They don't understand why I can't just "calm down" or "chill out". I need some quotes ( you will remain anonymous of course) from you guys explaining your experiences, what you struggle with most, and what has helped you cope. I'm also looking for input on what images come to mind when you think about your anxiety. For example one of the spreads in the zine is a series of thumbnail images that slowly change from one image to the next to show a "white out". This is something that happens to me when I have a panic attack I white out instead of black out. I would greatly appreciate your contributions and I will post the zine on my profile when its completed. Thanks,
