I am sixteen years old, and lately I have been diagnosed with Anxiety Disorder.
It happened one day out of the blue, all of a sudden, when I was at the gym. I suddeny got hot and cold flashes, I was dizzy, panicked and I felt like I was going to faint any minute.
Since then, nothing has been the same. It has been almost four months since my first of many attacks.
My appetite has dropped since, I barely get out of the house if I don't have to. I still go to school, but sometimes I go home in the middle of the day because it's too much.
I am frustarated and hopeless about the situation.
I have'nt been out with friends since, no more going out, no more fun trips. Everything scares me.
I do everything I possibly can: I meditate every morning and night, I try to go to school to keep my mind off everything else, I work out, eat healthy, go to therapy, and nothing is happening.
I am not on any medication, I thought I would try fixing the problem without any.
My usual symptoms are: Dizziness, light headed, shaky and wobbly legs, I feel like I am going to faint any second, upset stomach, foggy, blurry, and the need to get out of the place I'm in, claustrophobic, my face and feet burn up, I feel very hot, and so on.
Everyday I say: Today is going to be the last one like this. I am going to be okay. This will pass in a minute. But it just doesn't, and I am so sad. I don't know what to do anymore.
Do any of you guys have any advice? I feel so alone
