Anxiety? What should I do? Help.

Posted , 5 users are following.

I don't really know where to start; but here it is. I'm 16 yr old and I live in Chester, England. At the moment I am in the PH for my studies, and will soon be heading back home this Saturday. See, I'm quite a shut in. I only have a few people I talk to; and I rarely go outside - I only go out of my ways if it's really important. And here's the problem. I've had this for quite a while now, probably a few months ago? I can't remember. I'd get really panic-ish whenever a class was about to start. Then it grew, kinda; I had panic attacks whenever I saw someone and they jumped in and talked to me. I stutter and I have a hard time processing what they say and it feels like my chest is about to burst open. Same thing would happen whenever I order food or whenever I buy anything, I say it in a jiffy; thinking the cashier is making a joke of me or something. It's downright annoying, no- frustrating. Then after this and that it got worse, even when I'm alone I'd get this panic attacks without any reason. I'd get really down afterwards and I just cry (call me a wimp but yes) Afterwards I'd grab a pencil and sketch to calm myself. It usually occured once a day if I'm alone and a LOT when I'm at school since I have to talk with people there. At the moment this happens almost any time of the day even if I'm alone. Probably at 3-4 a day. I try really hard not to show it specially when I'm with mum. I don't really want her worry, see. But now it's gotten a tad worse. What should I do? Thanks. Cheerio!
