I know how scary and frustrating this anxiety thing can be, but try not to over-react. I know that's difficult cause anxiety is tough to handle. I am guilty of saying that I have "struggled" with anxiety for many years. That doesn't mean that it is a constant struggle, just something that I have to deal with at times. Medication helps greatly for most people. I was 20 when the real anxiety disorder began seemingly out of nowhere. However, I had suffered a bad head trauma from an automobile accident about a year before. Some drs. seem to think that may have triggered it. Remember that you are in high school. That is a tough time with lots of expectations and studying, etc., not to mention peer pressure. My daughter also has had issues with anxiety on and off. She's 23 now, but she had some problems in high school and now college, mostly due to her high expectations of herself. Plus she went to a fine arts magnet school in middle and high school, and their expectations were through the roof. She called me two nights ago having anxiety problems because of a huge Accounting exam in one of her college classes. These things can spur anxiety issues, but that doesn't necessarily mean you will be bothered all the time. Most likely you won't. However, if you need medication, it can be the difference in feeling normal and feeling terrible. If you are in high school, talk to your parents or some adult in your life. Ask them to help you seek the best help. These problems are often chemical imbalances that can be dealt with. I know this from experience. As you stated, you do have your whole life ahead of you. There was a time when I felt as you do, but know that I have been better for many years with break-throughs just every now and then. I wish you the best !!
