Generalized anxiety disorder stopping college! help

Posted , 4 users are following.

To explain i am a eighteen yearold male suffering with GAD, Autism, OCD, depression and minor psychosis.

Recently i am losing the ability to function outside of the house and well its stopping me attending college, i wanted some advice for im tempted to drop my college but i do not want a life of benefits, i spent two years studying engineering and find it quite easy just lack of function is preventing me from attending.

So my question is should i drop my college as getting outside is difficult i fear that something bad will happen or my that my mouth is numbing even when its not but it feels that way.

Or should i keep attending and if so how can i get used to being outside again without having break downs all the time so i can be relatively normal again compared to the other students.

    you are undicided , whether which option to go for.  if you were diagnosed with GAD, Autism, OCD, depression and minor psychosis it means you are or were seeing a professional in the area. i suggest you to contact your doctor and ask him about how you are feeling right now. at the end it will depend on what you want to do. you have the last word.

    several years i was having a crisis as i also suffer from OCD and axiety i and stopped college for a few semesters and ended up finishing my carreer later than the rest of my classmates,i just felt i could not handle the pressurea and i could not focus on class but back then it was all in my mind i just didnt know. anyways, i got my degree and everything went fine. you have to decide which one is best for you and meditate about it, it is okay to take  breaks we are humans just dont stop college permantly. contact your doctor if not then you may need to see someone yo aliviate you mental anxiety.

      Thats some pretty good solid advice but my parents are probably not going to like that as they have a hard time understanding how i am now, they think that im going to get better on medication alone rather than giving some actual support.
