    I can’t do anything anymore I give up on everything I’m so scared to just do basic thing I keep trying to talk to my parents about it but no one understands how hard it is to just sleep or wake up everyone just think I’m lazy but it’s just this feel where I can’t do even if I really want to I just can’t. My parents been trying to get me a job and they put me on this course and after the first day I give up because the thought of going back scary me so bad I was looking up how to suicide because I’ll rather that then go back I been crying about it for about 10 hours straight now I’m so tired and exhausted and I just don’t know how to explain this to my parents

    It must be so challenging to have your family understand that you are scared to do things, hard to sleep and wake up and so scared to you really don't want to go back to the course.  We acknowledge that it would be exhausting to be crying for 10 hours and what that has been doing to you.

    Hi Kaylazik,

    I'm so sorry to hear how you have been feeling. These feelings are really difficult to deal with when you don't feel like you have support around you so it's a fantastic thing you've done by reaching out on this forum. We're always here to have a chat and help you if you need.

    Have you spoken to a GP about how you've been feeling? I think that would be a really good first place to start. Maybe after you have the conversation with the doctor it might open up the conversation with your parents.

    Hi Kaylazik,

    im so sorry you are feeling this way I know it’s hard.... having these feelings is a difficult thing to go through I once had severe anxiety but I have now overcome it ........ you too can overcome what you are going through....... believe me you are feeling like this now but you won’t feel like this for ever what you are going through is temporary..... feel that heart beating inside your chest that’s purpose you are supposed to be here..... please don’t give up keep pushing forward no matter how hard it feels now..... you will grow from what you are going through the best is yet to come........

    it must be so hard not being able to be supported by your parents...... is there another family member or friend you could confide in?

    Can you make an appointment with your gp? My gp was very supportive through out my mental health journey.....I’m sure one could help you........

    please let us know how you are doing ....

    If you feel anxious try to slow down your breathing.... put your attention on your breath.....😊

    mum here if you want to chat or have questions
