Hi, I’m Emily, I’m 14 from the UK and I’m in Year10. I know topics like this are usually dismissed off as hormones and being a teenager but, I don’t know what to do anymore, I feel like I can’t talk to anyone. I’m really shy and very very closed even with extremely close people in my life. I have been feeling this way for a while now and not too long ago I had my first experience of having heart palpitations, of course they’re not as bad as anxiety attacks which I actually have pretty often but as times gone on I’ve realised I shouldn’t be dismissing these things off as just being a teenager. My life is honestly amazing I couldn’t be more grateful. I have lots of supportive people around me including my best friends, my boyfriend and my parents. However, I just feel like I can’t talk to any of them, especially not my mam because she’s quite... awkward?? Like, if I have a problem, of course she helps to me she’s the best mam in the world!!! But if I told her I thought I have depression or something she would say “well I had to grow up...” blah blah blah...you know what I mean? And of course I know there are people out there so so so much worse off than me but I can’t help feeling this way and I always try to push things off. Not too long ago my mam realised signs of my anxiety and she thought it was to do with my worryingly low iron deficiency...but it isn’t and I know it isn’t. And one day I was having a bad day and I said something about it and she said “well I think you’re making it out to be worse than it is” but I’m not. Of course I’m not. I’ve tried talking to her about these things but I don’t think she understands, and to me I know there’s also been bad things happen in my life building up to why I feel like this. Someone please help me out? I just need someone to understand.
