What the fuck is wrong with me?

The past few days I've been feeling REALLY down and unhappy, I'm pretty sure it's because school/hell is just around the corner and that makes me anxious af. I was fine in June and July, everything was cool, but now it's back to the old days. I get these random moments when I can't stop crying bc of my life, and something that's a first for me and what this question is about is that sometimes I get these small panic attacks (I guess?) when I LITERALLY CAN'T BREATHE when I think about my future and that's what worries me, it's a horrible feeling, it's really scary. That's never happened to me before. What the fuck is wrong with me? How can I stop that fucking shit? I don't wanna die o_o

  • R u about to start college?

    I didn't feel it right away. Only a few months after being in college.

    It means u do worry about ur future and it is normal, since many responsibilities will come with taking care of urself and studying in college.

    My case may be a bit different from urs though.

    My advice is: even if it isn't easy, u xant let urself b consumed by these feelings. I did and I was like that for a few years.

    U need to start setting goals. Focus on small steps that u need to complete to get where u r. It is so normal to feel overwhelmed, but know that sometimes we make thibgs out to b bigger than they r.

    U can do it. This is what u need to believe in, bcause it is true.

    Live in the present, focused in what u want to achieve in a near future (example what u want to achieve for the day). This is the best way not to feel overwhelmed.

    Even if u dont feel like doing something u know is good for u, break through the bad feelings. They r there just to hold u back from doing what u really need to do to get to where u want to b.

    Feeling fear is so human. You just can't let urself to b consumed by it. It isn't worth it, trust me. Because sooner or later u will have to stop being afraid and better to do it sooner than later.

    If u feel like further talking about it, feel free to PM me.

    I don't know if i will b able to help, but i know what u r feeling because of my personal experience.

    • Oh. So basically its the same fear. Different situation. Fear of failing and having ur chances of getting far from home taken from you.

      It makes sense, since this is ur last year nd u feel like u can't go wrong.

    • Yes, exactly! :(

  • You are overly stressed or depressed about something that happened in your past. You need to find something that relaxes you: unwind. If you're taking too many classes, then drop 1 or 2. There is time. The turtle wins the race. Slow and steady. Don't burn yourself out.

    Also,
    "When we think about the past, we get depressed. When we think about the future, we get anxious. Learn from the past, but leave it there; plan for the future, but leave it there; live in the present."

  • You're extremely stressed out and perhaps a little depressed. I would honestly try tackling whatever problem is troubling you as it seems to be the root of your negatively. What aspect of your future are you worried about? What can you do to change things? These are the kind of questions you should ask yourself. Good luck!

  • whooooooo... life may seem an uncontrolled mess but please remember you are young and there is absolutely nothing wrong with not being totally sorted by 18, i certainly was not. life pans out, just focus and grab the chances you want to grab when they come along and they will

    • some you may, some you may not but please do not beat yourself so much at your age, honestly i wasn't remotely sorted at 21, let alone 18.

    • I wish I could not beat myself up so much :( I feel like I'm just a kid, I shouldn't have all these feelings.

  • Its called an anxiety (panic) attack. I think you can get medication for them. But there is nothing wrong with you, cuz i get em from time to time too.

    • Thanks, but I can't afford any medication.

    • That's fine. Just try to calm down and find a way to relieve yourself from stress and you will have them less often.

    • I will try

  • There is probably nothing at all wrong with you. None of us really know what life has in store. All you can do is make the best of what you have and try to plan for the future.
    Whatever doesn't kill you will only serve to make you stronger

  • That definitely sounds like a panic attack to me. Your anxiety based on school starting again and not being sure about your future (maybe?) are your triggers for these attacks. I've gotten them, too, and I know how scary they can be.

    I've looked at this site in order to help me control the way that I am feeling, though that's easier said than done obviously: www.anxietycoach.com/overcoming-panic-attacks.html

    Read through the advice listed on there and try to follow those steps as best you can if you feel another panic attack coming on. You have friends here, me included, if you ever need to talk, too. :)

    • You're more than welcome, my dear! <3 I've been feelin' down myself, so I definitely get it. Try to find activities that make you happy in the meantime. :)

    • I'll try :) Might be hard, but I'll try.

  • It most likely runs in your family. Oh well.
