I FEEL SICK

Posted by amandaunderthepink , 28 July 2010 · 12 views

COLLEGE STARTS IN 3 1/2 WEEKS...AND I'M GOING BACK.....I FEEL SICK AND SCARED. I DON'T GET IT. IT WASN'T LIKE THIS LAST YEAR...

BUT LAST YEAR I WASN'T A RAPE VICTIM. LAST YEAR I DIDN'T LOOK OVER MY SHOULDER AT EVERY LITTLE NOISE, OR JUMP OUTTA MY SKIN AT EVERY LITTLE NOISE. I NEVER WANTED ANY OF THIS.
I FEEL LIKE I AM TRYING TO KEEP UP WITH LIFE...BUT SLOWLY GOING UNDER.



I know how you feel when it comes to the looking over your shoulder and being jumpy. You'll be okay. You're strong enough to get through this. I know that since I started taking anxiety medication, it hasn't been as bad...it takes away some of the fight or flight response our bodies go into during a traumatic event...and continue to be in. Just something to think about. Good luck. You can do this.

(((((((((Amanda)))))))) if ok
God, I feel your pain so much on this. I started school last year and I'm still jumping out of my skin when I go out. I've got this weird mixture of social phobia and agoraphobia, so it's kinda like... I don't really feel comfortable in the classroom or getting to class. Err, yeah. >_>

Is there anyone in your life that you feel you can talk to about how you feel? Have you considered seeing a T about it?

I hope things get better.

Please take care of yourself.
