Is this a good idea...?
Well, I figured out that my health concerns were all thanks to severe anxiety, mild depression, and stress, which I was officially diagnosed with one week ago...
I've been going to school normally, but I just feel VERY run down daily. Headache, drowsyness, irrtability, loss of appetite. I feel peachy when I'm taking it easy at home or at another casual setting with family/friends.
I had a pretty serious cold earlier this year, and missed a few days of school and I'm getting uncomfortably close to my absence limit. Tomorrow IS a Friday, and I know it's just ONE more day until the weekend, but I really feel like I need a mental health day. Being in school takes a toll on me every day - I feel trapped, alone (even though my friends are right there), and I feel that if I ever needed something to help me calm down (a walk in the park, or comforting words from someone who cares about me), it wouldn't be available to me.
I'm jumpy and less involved since my severe anxiety kicked in last month. I'm currently seeing a therapist and am scheduled to see a physciatrist next week, to see if I need medication.
I'm hoping that the doctor can give me something material for my problems, but until then, I just think I'm going insane...
Would it be a good idea for me to take a mental health day?
