Struggling to cope


I just had my first therapy session. I finally found a therapist that I like! However, I just feel so depressed. I am getting chemistry help and my teacher knows I have anxiety. I get so scared when I am alone with her that my hands shake and I freeze-up whenever she asks me questions. I really want to trust her but I am too afraid to. I hate that I am not normal. I see everyone else in my class has friends and can talk to other people.

Hello,


What do you mean by you really want to trust her?

She knows that you have anxiety and if she understands then, it’s gonna be okay. A lot of people have anxiety and they identify with others in similar situations, please dont beat up yourself cause it’s gonna be alright.
I get like that around almost everyone. I get all shaky and nervous but it’s okay. You should stay away from caffeine and try to get enough sleep okay? Sometimes it’s the nerves in the body that needs relaxation.

Understanding teacher is a good thing, not someone who just push without any care - LEARN MY STUFF!

Even shy people can be sassy sometimes...
I'll put drunk raccoon in my signature as well, because I CAN...
