I am 18 years old and struggling with depression and anxiety. I have really low self esteem and am really antisocial. I also get a panic attack almost every night overthinking about anything and a lot of “what ifs”. The news on tv also really frighten me. I don’t have any friends, only a boyfriend who tries to help me but he doesn’t understand me. My mother thinks that what I’m going through is “normal” but she doesn’t understand how I feel. My little sister and I are also arguing, and apparently my parents think that she’s right. I still haven’t graduated from high school because I’m a complete failure. I don’t know how to drive, nothing I do comes out right either. I’m the black sheep of my family, they are always saying why I am the way I am, why I don’t work when it’s obvious that I can’t and that I’m a failure! They took me to a psychologist but it didn’t seem to work. Today I had an embarrassing moment and even though it seemed small, to me it seemed like my world ended. People made fun of me, so I just locked myself in the bathroom until I stopped crying. Then I came out as if nothing happened but I don’t want to go to school anymore.
