A: I have no pearl of wisdom that could ever save you. The power to save you is always with you. It scares me to think that you"ve thought about suicide. You"re graduation high school? It is not uncommon at all for people to feel alone after high school. I am no longer in touch with anyone from my class. If you"ve had thoughts of suicide I would consider finding a counceler out in the community or call a 1800 counceling service to get someone to talk to. That has helped me in the past to have someone to talk to, and without the anxiety of talking to someone in person and fearing that they might be judging me somehow. You do deserve to feel better and depression can be very hard. I"ve been through times when I"ve been too depressed to study, eat, wash my clothes, or...


The Signs and Symptoms of Panic Attacks in Young Children

A: anxiety in Children Some anxiety in life is perfectly normal and kids go through different phases of it for different reasons. For example, toddlers will usually experience separation anxiety when parents leave for a little while. Toddlers and young children from 3-5 usually develop fears of the dark, monsters or bugs. Shy kids will withdraw from new activities, people and situations. Tweens and teens start to develop fears of death, injury and public speaking.

Should I get real help?

A: Well, Amber, It"s not so much that you need help, but that after all you"ve been through, you"re entitled to it! Your mom was right in that psychotherapy can do only so much, and that it doesn"t help every person with every problem. But you are so overwhelmed with so many serious issues that you really should take advantage of what"s available. I think a clinical social worker could help you straighten out your life (where to live, what to do, how to handle the changes) and a clinical psychologist can teach you how to cope with your psychological concerns. They are not going to come to you. Please take the initiative no matter how hard it is to make the first call. You could look up Mental Health Clinics in the Yellow Pages, or the Help Line in the...

How can I help a friend with the fear of crowds when he is too afraid to see a doctor

A: Colleen   Thank you for your question and welcome to anxietyConnection.com.   I am not a medical professional and would not be able to give you medical advice.   It is wonderful that your friend has someone in his life that cares and wants to help and support him.   Would your friend allow you to go with him to the doctor and help explain what he is feeling? If not, maybe you can help him write down some statements that he can bring with him to the doctor. If he has difficulty expressing his thoughts, having them written down ahead of time may help him.   Keeping a diary or journal of anxiety symptoms, including the situations that cause anxiety can help the doctor better...


Am I autistic - please help me determine?

A: It's possible, but you've mostly just talked about social issues. These are a fundamental part of autism, but there's a lot more to it than that. Other symptoms include obsessive interests (which you did mention - do you think your current interests qualify as obsessive?), need for routine, repetitive behaviors, poor motor coordination, and abnormal sensory processing. There is also a speech delay in autism but not Asperger's syndrome (a mild form of autism). If you don't have at least some of these symptoms, then you probably do not have autism. social anxiety disorder is much more likely in this case. But if you do have these other symptoms, then it could be autism or Asperger's. If...


Extreme insecurity

A: Hi, Welcome to the forum. I am really glad to help you out. Your concern is regarding the anxiety and depression that you are having. From your symptoms, it is not clear whether you are suffering from depression or generalized anxiety disorder. While depression is a mental disorder characterized by a pervasive low mood, loss of interest in usual activities and diminished ability to experience pleasure, generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) is an anxiety disorder characterized by chronic anxiety, exaggerated worry and tension, even when there is little or nothing to provoke it. I suggest you to consult a psychiatrist as a psychological session and physical examination...
