  • how to calm down after a breakdown

    Ok so I recently got caught by my mother while I was secretly watching kpop videos on my school iPad, and she went through my iPad, which gives me extreme anxiety. She finally gave it back, and I am now in my room having a nervous breakdown. I can barely stop crying and I can't breathe and my heart is pounding and I can't calm down. What I normally do when I get like this is watch funny kpop videos on YouTube, but I can't do that now or else my mom will get mad at me. If I tell her that when she does that, it gives me anxiety, she will just get suspicious and not help at all. She knows about my anxiety, but she doesn't really understand it. I have to stop crying and having anxiety over things like this, but I can't use my usual method and I'm freaking out. I'm trying deep breaths, etc. but it's not working. And whenever I think about it it just makes me start crying again. Please help me out here!
  • How to deal with anxiety without medication

    I have been professionally diagnosed with Generalized Anxiety Disorder and Social Anxiety Disorder, and my parents don't really understand it or take it seriously. Because of that, they don't understand the struggle I go through almost every day, the anxiety I feel even when going to school or talking to my friends or doing activities that I enjoy. I was wondering if anyone knows any ways to handle anxiety on this level without medication? My brother has ADD and he is heavily medicated, and my parents have a ton of stress dealing with that. I am supposed to see a psychologist to help with my needs, but I have only seen her once, and that was to be diagnosed. I want to be able to go through life and know what it's like to not have anxiety about every little thing, without medication or hypnosis and stuff like that. Are there any methods you have for dealing with anxiety without medicine?

  • Phobias with GAD is driving me insane

    I was diagnosed with generalized anxiety disorder a little over two years ago. My neurologist, who I see for my temporal lobe epilepsy, prescribed Clonazepam to combat the anxiety attacks that I have. However, the level of severity changes with both the seasons and situations that I am in. Since it is sliding into Autumn and Winter, all I think is that everyone is going to start getting sick and my emetophobia is the first thing that takes over causing anxiety attacks three times as bad as the ones I typically get. When I have an attack nausea is the first side effect which due to my phobia exacerbates the situation in a circular motion, making it perpetually get worse. When you lump my basic hypochondria into the situation, it just doesn't seem to get any better whatsoever. I've become so nervous all of the time that I literally feel like I'm going insane. If it wasn't for my willpower I would have broken down a long time ago. I'm trying this website because I'm trying to find a place that can truly help, even in the littlest bit. I'm losing it and no one in my life is understanding or remotely helpful and I don't know what to do.
  • School with anxitey

    For the past two years I've done online school due to my mental illnesses, agrophobia and emetophbia. I'm starting public school again this year, and if high school wasn't hard enough. I'm terrified of seeing, hearing, etc of getting sick so I don't know how I'm going to get through that. I'm anxious of simply seeing the people I left for online school as I've drifted away from them. Overall I don't want to mess up.
