Sarah Asked: Could this be some sort of anxiety disorder?
This may be long, so I really appreciate those who stick with it and answer 🙂
4 years ago I had an accident and major head surgery. It left me with post-traumatic headaches and anxiety. The anxiety has gotten better over the years, but I still have attacks. Mostly they happen when I am stressed in school. Even the smallest things. (Before I go further, I will tell you that I am home schooled…and strictly 😉 ) I can't keep up well with my writing assignments, but when I haven't done them I feel even worse. I sometimes freak out before tests or quizzes and often, even if I've studied, I completely forget everything I studied about for my quiz or test and can't do it. Sometimes my mom comes to me late at night to talk about school and I get a panicked feeling I have to…I HAVE TO watch a class or two in order to get caught up in school or just do a couple classes so the next day will go smoother. If I don't do a class or so, then I can't sleep at night and just cry because I'm panicked feeling. (My mom and I just talked about this tonight and I got her to understand how I feel, so we're going to work on talking about school earlier in the day, but still, this happens…)
One night before I was to go back to school from vacation, I was doing some homework and got overwhelmed because I kept remembering things that I forgot to do for school during vacation, and I think I had a serious anxiety attack. I felt panicked, sick, and I was breathing in an odd way. I started snorting through my nose or mouth really quickly. It started to get hard to breath, so I tried stopping for a few moments and attempted to breath regularly, but I started feeling like my breathing was worse and I was suffocating, so I started snorting in that weird way. It was odd and took me a long to time to get control of myself (I had to find a friend on Skype and chat with her for a while to even slightly calm myself down). That was the scariest "attack" I've had yet..I never told my parents either that I had that. Don't know why, maybe afraid of what they'll say? (btw, real quick if it means anything, I do have an awesome relationship with my parents.)
I also cry a lot. Again, mostly about school. Don't know if that is normal or if it is the big thing in my life so it is what is causing my anxiety. I cry and cry up in my room and want to shut myself away from everyone. I look at myself in the mirror and tell myself over and over and over again that I hate myself. I feel guilty saying it, but the feelings are overwhelming.
So I think that gives a fairly good overview. I mainly just want to know if it sounds like something to do still with my accident, an anxiety disorder (so, for myself, I can have a name to call it) or if I'm just looking for an excuse and being a teenager and need to get a hold of my life. I appreciate your time and thoughts =]
