I was told it would be a good idea to join a forum, since no one in my life at the moment has any idea what to do. I'm about to turn 17.. but i can remember having anxiety and irrational worries for most of my life. I kept my worries and problems to myself, developing trust issues and social anxiety along the way. Out of the past 5 years, 4 of them were spent depressed and all 5 constantly worrying. I managed to convince myself that if i just try to act happy and not think about whatever worries me. It worked for about 2 years. All my friends could tell something was wrong, but i wouldn't tell any of them about it. I eventually cracked at the start of my junior year in high school; I randomly started to sob uncontrollably, it felt like my heart was going to burst out of my chest. IT felt like the walls were caving in, that if i didn't get out of there now there would be some horrible consequence. At first i just tried to hide it, put my head down in my jacket(I sat in the back of the room), but the people sitting next to me Raised their hands and said "I think he needs to go to the nurse"... Hearing that made it worse, i ended up walking out of the classroom and sitting outside until one of my friends walked me to the bathroom. I went to my general doctor a week later, and he quickly put me on zoloft and Clonazepam. He had almost no idea what to do; He's just there to fill out prescriptions my Therapist recommends. Last time I went there i told her my doses(at the time) were 75mg of zoloft once a day and .75mg of clonzepam 3 times a day(which was recently raised to 1mg 3 times a day..). She already knew i had GAD, but she also said it's possible i have PTSD(from being the only witness of an armed robbery on my house, lead by my sister.), Type two Bipolar Disorder, and a list of other conditions and disorders.. The only thing she's ruled out is OCD, because i have too many symptoms.. And now I'm here. I actually think this is the first internet post I've done in years..I was always afraid of the responses..So there's the basic story.. I don't really want to go into anymore detail..Too paranoid.. I don't really want to give my real name either.. so anyone can call me zip or ziper, doesn't really matter what.
