Hello, so in November of last year, I began to have pretty bad anxiety and panic attacks everyday until about a few weeks ago. Now, I can't really feel any emotion even though I try and I know I should be feeling something but I just don't. I feel like an apathetic monster. Sometimes I can't even cry when I want to. I feel like I'm acting/putting on a mask when I'm at school talking to friends. Also I don't really have the motivation to do any schoolwork anymore, which is causing my grades to slip a little bit. This causes me to feel even worse about myself and I end up getting all these bad thoughts about how i'm a failure and i'll never get into college, etc. I just want to go back to my normal self and start feeling emotions again, and doing my best in school. I'm only 14 and i'm scared i've ruined my life already. My therapist says I should do breathing techniques to help me calm down, but that advice is useless since I don't even get that anxious anymore. Just numb. So I'm desperate right now. Help plz.
