Hi everyone, my name is Rachel and I am 16 years old. I am here seeking support for my terrible anxiety disorder, ocd and depression. I have been struggling on and off with these issues my whole life but not like I am currently. I am seeing a psychiatrist to help me find techniques that work to quiet my ocd and anxiety, but I have made little progress. It\’s been a year and a half since my anxiety has been so severe and I am beggining to lose hope. I feel so alone with my struggles and misunderstood. I don\’t have any \”run of the mill\” anxieties, to be honest . I have ocd about what my mother says to me. I make her opinions law and live by them. I am currently struggling with two anxieties. 1. That I will be mean to someone and hurt there feelings because I am a genuinely mean person 2. That my mom thinks il never get better and need meds to feel good. These two fears plague me to the extent where I can\’t be myself around anyone, am bombarded by 24/7 anxiety, and miss a hell of a lot of school. Even with techniques there is not in the moment in my day when i am not stressing about something. I keep hoping i will grow out of this but at this point i dont know anymore. This 300 word rule is bothering me because i dont knoe what else to say. I guess sometimes i wonder whether or not my mom purposely says things just to upset me. I missed school today because my mom sais i was doinf better on meds than i am now. Can anyone else relate to my struggles or give some helpful tips on how to get through this?
