How can I tell the difference?
Ok. A year go I was diagnosed with Depression and ADD. I'm not in saying I don't, I know something is wrong and with my background my best friend says its understand able. I was sexually assaulted when I was 5 and my mom up and moved state when I was 14. I had trouble figuring out my sexuality, but that part is all sorted.
I was reading alot on this site and I was reading the symptoms for an Anxiety disorder and I noticed that i had a lot of them and my best friend even thinks I have one due to her dad having one. And the more I think about it the more I think I may have one, but I don't know if its just part of the depression.
Even as a little kid I tended to worry about little things than most kids my age. I've always been told I act more adult than my classmates (I'm a teenager). School wasn't that big of a think for me to get worried about though. I kept my grades decent and over compensated in classes that I enjoy like English, the sciences and choir.
I don't tend to worry about my health, but others. I take care of myself yes, but I tend to stress myself out with other people's problems. One time I had spilled liquid make-up all over my math text book and I ended up curled up in a corner rocking myself, freaking out about it. I managed to pull myself together after an hour and cleaned the text book.
I'm also very hesitant on meeting new people. I don't like physical contact with new people and I'm scared of being hurt until I tend to know them better. Men normally are the people I tend to have the hardest time to warm up to. Even at school, even though I put on a brave face, I scared of boys in the hall when they are throwing stuff and I'm the only one in my group of friends that shrinks away and stays out of their way.
I have no clue if its just my past and depression or if it has grown into something more serious.. please help...
(Could it also be PTSD?)
If everyone cared. If nobody cried...then I wouldn't be on my knees begging for help.
