Long story short, I'm in a consistently stressful/anxiety-causing situation. I don't have a way of getting out of it, and I've been to the doctors' offices far too often only to get the same results. Everything is fine past little curable things that go away in a day or two.
I've had EKG, blood pressure, blood tests both for vitamins/thyroid and for cardiac, monitors, x-rays, everything of the like.
I'm diagnosed with depression, generalized, and social anxiety.
My anxiety symptoms vary from day to day, but today has been the absolute worst. Long lasting chest pains, tightness, can't eat/drink, hard to swallow, headache, chills/hot flashes, body aches, constant runs to the bathroom (even during classes!), blurry vision, nausea, IBS, severe breakouts/rashes, you name it--I've probably had it.
I should probably mention I'm 16 and trans as well in an unaccepting environment, which I know just adds to the stress.
Question here is--how can I believe that what the doctors are telling me is true, and how can I cope in a situation I'm physically incapable of getting out of? I'd really appreciate the help!
