Default Well...I am coming out.

Hello, I am Amy.

I started high school a while ago. The building, classes, and teachers have all changed this semester but other than the anxiety and stress I already have from wanting everything to be perfect...

This feeling of hopelessness, constant crying, lack of concentration, constant tiredness- depression. I already had a counselor because of my stress issues and she saw this coming. I am afraid and scared, of school and now this- depression. So, yes I just discovered this today ;(

I am going to start taking anti-depressants and I am hoping that can clear my mind. But for now I am sad and generally losing pieces of my self-esteem as I keep trying to go-go-go.

Tomorrow my parents and I agreed that I need a mental health day from school. That sounds amazing but I am also nervous about assignments and I am now in a frenzy to get that all straightened out. In total, I WANT to stay home but I am scared. I am also quite scared of my school.

Today, I just feel like running into a wall a million times.
Thanks for reading.

-Amy

Nice to meet you Amy.

I just wanted to say that I am so glad your parents are helping you. Having supportive family/loved ones can really make a big difference.

I'm sorry things are so up in the air and scary right now, but eventually you'll find a "groove" to settle down into. It might be different for you than for your classmates, but what's wrong with that?

Whatever you've gotta do to make sure you are successful, that's worth doing. Even if it involves meds and/or a therapist. There's no shame in asking for help.
