The way people handle a certain situations that life throws at them, is usually a reflection of who they are as a person.

Both of my parents didn’t understand what was happening and why all the sudden I would get anxiety over something small.

I would eat lunch with a group of girls that was more friends with my other friend, and they were ok I didn’t feel comfortable with them or anyone really. Eating at lunch would be hard because it gave me so much anxiety with the talking and people, so I began to have to leave during the lunch and go to the locker room and finish my food or go sit in the library.

A girl in my class who I had talked to in the class and had used to be pretty good friends with followed me in there to help me calm down and go to the nurses office because I could not breathe. I had made it to the nurses office and was already anxious from the whole situation, and then got more anxious for crying in front of someone. I left school early that day and did not come back for two days after that because I wasn’t able to get out of bed. I began more therapy and a different medicine for me.
