hi so my name is emily im 13 years old and i have really bad generalized anxiety disorder. recently, its gotten worse after missing almost 2 weeks of school from being sick and feeling depressed. i take depression meds and occasionally anxiety ones but they dont seem to be helping. im always sad & even thinking abt school makes me sick to my stomach. when i did attempt to go to school, i couldnt even make it one class and had to go to the bathroom and sit and text my mom begging her to pick me up as i had an anxiety attack.

these past couple of days, ive been dealing with bad depersonalization. ive had it some in the past but not like this. i feel numb about everything and i forget what i do on a daily basis because its like i space out and then im just there. it seems like everyone else is moving on while im stuck in place. i dont know what to do because if i tell my parents they'll just think im trying to stay home from school and then make me more upset by yelling at me. and i cant continue going to my friends for help when they have their own stuff. what do i do to go back to feeling happy and here again? also, ive asked my parents since i was 9 to be homeschooled but they refuse to let me. i genuinely think itd be good for me tho.

I wouldn't worry too much about everyone else moving on. LIfe isn't a race. Dealing with an anxiety disorder can be a real challenge. Just give it your best effort and be satisfied with that. Try to work with your doctor to find better meds or better dosages that will work for you. Be sure to let him/her know that you are barely treading water with the current regimen. Chin up. Good luck.
