I want so badly to do things I enjoy, but it seems like I never have the energy. Today I had a panic attack when my teacher explained an essay we'll be writing, while already knowing I'm having trouble with an essay for a different class. I'm so stressed I can't concentrate on anything. I know I need to stay positive and support those around me, but would it be so bad to break down and cry? I am SO looking forward to therapy tomorrow.

@erin.electra this is very helpful, thank you!! I put a lot of pressure on myself to do well and I need to change that.

@hopexo No problem. It's a lot of work but, honestly, the alternative is feeling like s*** all the time, so it's worth it. If/when you do try to make a change, remember to be patient with yourself. People who already put a lot of pressure on themselves to do well may feel frustrated at themselves if they don't heal quickly enough (I fall into this category, so I know...), but having some patience with yourself can go a long way.

@hopexo That is good to hear, I am also trying to push myself out of my comfort zones and enjoy life a little more and try not to stress to much about things. I wish you the best of luck with trying to do things that make you happy, and I am very glad to hear that therapy went well for you.
