School (13)

1 Name: Anonymous : 2008-03-25 02:52 ID:uuBPwYHQ

In my first block at school I have two good friends I talk to, I talk to them a lot and I feel comfortable talking to them. I usually don't speak to anyone else unless it's necessary. But today, I talked and my teacher made me move to another seat. It was on the front and I explained to him that I felt uncomfortable sitting there and that I felt overly anxious. He told me to take a breath and step outside. Just being away from my two friends like that and put in a group with strangers made me really anxious. I started to cry and breath heavily. I don't know. This had never happened to me, I had never reacted to anything like this. I felt sick, like I was gonna puke and I was lightheaded.

You need to become more comfortable around people other than these friends of yours. Try talking to people, even just to say 'hi how was ur weekend?' type stuff, when it isn't nessessary.

You cried in class? Ha, there goes any chance of anybody liking you.

Only if Male.

Also it's really going to suck when your friends ditch you so try looking down on everyone all the time.

I didn't cry in class. It was in my counselor's office.

I've had this.
It's a shit, indeed. If you're back in your seat now, just pretend it didn't happen to preserve yourself. If you're still there, look up and socialize, the harder it might be (but saying "hi" with a little smile and looking trusting at the other's face does ya wonders here). There are many topics here on socializing, BTW.
But now that you've had this panic attack, pay more attention to yourself, your feelings and limits. See if you can broaden your horizons, cause you'll need it.
Courage for you.

wow, that sucks man. it seems like you had an anxiety attack. if you're already on counseling you should talk about some relaxation techniques. and remember that other people are not 'out to get you'. most probably would like to talk to you, you just need to talk back.

It was my school counselor.

But I used to go to therapy. I was gonna start cognitive-behavioral therapy with SSRIs. It was expensive so I had to stop for a while because my parents were buying a house then. I am going to college now and I'd like to start again, I am just scared. I don't want this to take many years. And I don't want to be stuck like this, I've only had one girlfriend (she was the one who asked me out).

Tell your teacher you had an anxiety attack due to him moving you, he'll hopefully understand and not do it again next time.

Also, please please please research SSRI medications extensively. I took them along with Seroquel for years for depression and schizophrenia and they changed me in a real bad way. They're very iffy.

My therapist told me that too. He said I could take xanax, zoloft or paxil. I don't know which one to choose and that's when I had to stop. My parents are afraid of me committing suicide. The only thing that bothers me is erectile dysfunction.

You've got it? o.o
Btw, I had to take some light anti-depressives once. I could have gone further, but I chose not to, since I thought they could be a lil' too heavy for me. And I'm fine now. So maybe you'd like to avoid 'em too.
