I don't know what to do

Posted , 7 users are following.

Hi, I'm only a young teenager and I have been feeling really nauseous and scared for about 3 months and my Mum and Dad think that it is just my nerves and say I have anxiety. But I always feel like crying and being sick. We haven't been to the doctors about this yet because my Mum is too embarrassed. I'm also scared about growing up as I don't want anything to change and I don't want to leave home to go to university as I'm scared that something will happen to my family especially my Granny as she means the world to me. Please, help me if you know what is happening to me.

    I went through the exact same feelings as a teenager. They are perfectly normal feelings and very common. But if you find that these feelings are seriously affecting your daily life you should speak with a doctor. If your mum doesnt want to go, take a friend or another family member if you feel you need support. Going to a doctor was the best thing I ever did and really helped me with my anxiety. Stay strong and remember this is just a phase, you will feel better.

    Darling, can't you go to the doctor without your mum?

    I don't suppose there's any chance you're pregnant, is there, sweetheart?

    If you're quite sure there's no possibility of pregnancy, please be assured that LOADS of young people feel like you - it's a shock, thinking about the grown-up future. Your doctor can help. I don't know why your mum is embarrassed?

    You can send me a Private Message if you want. I'm a nurse and have had four children, all grown up now, and I was a very anxious teenager myself. So bad that I had to be taken to school every day by my dad because I was even scared of the bus journey. My Head Teacher was brilliant. My parents talked to her and she told me to come to her office whenever I was worried, so I did, and she always just let me sit there, reading a book, and chatting to me.

    Gradually the fear faded by itself, but I'm sure my Head Teacher's understanding had a lot to do with it. If you want to send me a (or anyone) a Private Message just click on the envelope icon under the sendere's name. xxxxxxx Tess

    Hey Jennifer,

    Given the feelings you're having about leaving school and your Granny, and the fact that you're at a stressful point in your life, it is totally understandable that you're feeling sick, scared and on edge. You are most likely experiencing anxiety.

    Although it is a common thing to go through, that doesn't mean it should take over your life the way it seems to be doing. Please go and see your doctor - your Mum should NOT be embarrassed, there is absolutely nothing to be embarrassed about! Anxiety is a normal response to stressful points in your life, and is something that millions of people suffer from.

    See your doctor, and they will be able to re-assure you and recommend what steps you should take to start feeling like yourself again xxx
