Anxiety and Stress Disorders
I need help
Hi I`m a 14 year old girl with major problems. I have a major stress and anxiety disorder. I don`t know what to do anymore. My parents are getting mad at me and they don`t understand. I have a lot of meds for stress and anxiety, I have been to counseling many times but nothing seems to work. Its gotten soo bad where I feel sick all the time, I`m afraid to go places and I don`t know why. I feel like everybody hates me and is tired of me because of the way I am and feel. I`m even afraid to go to school I have missed over 11 days including today and I have a lot of doctors exscuses but they don`t help. I feel like I`m alone and can`t take it anymore.
I'm so sorry to hear of your current status and thoughts of suicide. I'm afraid NetWellness experts do not provide emergency services. However, as suicide is often a sign of extreme distress but also one that can be treated, I would strongly encourage you to do one or more of the following things as soon as possible:
1. Call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline: 1-800-273-8255 (website: http://www.suicidepreventionlifeline.org/help/default.aspx), which is free, confidential and staffed by trained counselors who are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
2. Call or go to your local hospital emergency room.
3. If you are in treatment, call your mental health professional.
Take good care.
