Stress, anxiety, paranoia and depression watch

    • Thread Starter

    Im currently living with the health issues based in the header. Im 16 and i struggle to live day by day with these issues. Some days,, i find myself happy, some days im sad. Im such a sensitive person and i take things the wrong way and take them to heart and i get upset and start overthinking. My paranoia leads me to not trusting anybody at all as i have been mentally abused in the past. My anxiety is with me from when i wake up to going sleep at night. I want to get better as soon as possible, im constantly needing reassurance from family, girlfriend and friends. I feel like i dont fit in anywhere and nothing goes right for me. I struggle to socialise, make eye contact, make conversation and keep the conversation going. I never smile nor laugh and people start to notice that there’s something wrong with me, is there anyone out there who can try and help me asap

    I'm sorry about how you're feeling. Have you spoken about it to your doctor yet?

    Hi there,

    It sounds like you're really struggling at the moment and I'm really sorry you're feeling this way. You'd be surprised to know how many people feel the same as you and have experienced what you're feeling, so don't feel like you're alone. It sounds like you want a quick fix, which is understandable as paranoia, stress, anxiety and depression is a horrible feeling, believe me I know. The quickest and best way to get better is to reach out for help. Telling people how you feel is a good step, you will feel a lot better if someone in your life knows how you're feeling and what you're going through. You don't have to tell every one, but just having one person in your life who understands if you're having a bad day or just having someone who will listen when it gets bad will make you feel a lot better. I would recommend talking to your GP, especially if it's interfering with your everyday life (which I find is the worst thing about depression, anxiety and paranoia it just has an impact on everything and becomes extremely overwhelming). Your GP can suggest things that might help such as medication, talking therapies etc and they will be able to make recurring appointments with you so you will at least have them for support. I think you can ask to be referred for an assessment although they might try other methods first before that.

    Just remember that you're not alone, so so many people have or will experience how you feel, personally I have depression, anxiety and paranoia so trust me I know how lonely and horrible you feel but I find comfort in talking to other people about it and knowing that other people feel the same so I hope I helped in some way! If you have any more worries, concerns, questions I'll be here if you need me
