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?)
