I feel really helpless and I don't know if I am meant to suck it up? Watch

    My mum is not one for comfort - she tells me to 'suck it up' 'grow up'.
    Which is do appreciate, it really helps if you are in a mope.

    But the truth is I dunno if what I am going through is normal, is it my health?

    I would be too embarrassed of my mum telling me I am pathetic if I am being silly but I feel so helpless.

    One day I was in physics and I had the weird feeling I get and it got so unbearable I thought the air was going to crush my skull,
    so I just left the classroom and went to the doctors.

    I didn't say much to her but I explained my constant crying (especially when everyone is asleep) but I already felt stupid so I left it there.

    She was quite nice and said that I should try counselling so I did this test thing and then I got this leaflet in the mail and it had loads of numbers on for me to call and book it.... it said I had 4 weeks to reply or I would be referred back to my doctor...
    I didn't know what to do, I was too scared to call, I didn't know if I could go.
    SO I left it.

    I couldn't ever tell my mum, she would laugh.

    Should I go to doctors again?
    How do you tell if you are ill or being pathetic?

    I feel on the edge and I did something silly last night and drunk all the vodka in my sisters cupboard and tried to climb off the bridge, I don't think I would of done it if I wasn't drunk, but it felt good.

    When is it not normal?

    Erm I think climbing off a bridge is past what I'd consider to be normal, but that's just my opinion :/

    My advise would be to go see the doctor you visited last time, and tell them what happened.
    Feel free to pm to as well, I've kinda been in your situation before

    It's not weakness to need help sometimes. Go back to your doctor or see a counsellor (I don't know if there's one at your school/university?). Ask someone for help and you don't even need to let your mum know if she's just going to make it worse for you.
