Re: Fear of Fainting At School (please help!)
Hi- I'm in school as well, I'm seventeen years old, and I think we have a similar situation. My fear isn't as specific as yours, but its similar, in the way in which, at home, I'm completely fine. Then, at certain places in certain situations I'm overcome with nervousness. School, sometimes. Cars often. And now public speaking--I get very anxious about public speaking because I'm afraid I'll experience a panic attack in front of the entire class and think of how embarrassing that would be! I think we are sort of similar in this way; I completely understand, at home I'm never worried about this type of thing, its just certain situations, and it has made me miss out on certain things as well.
Maybe you can call what we have a phobia; I don't think we have full blown panic attacks, but I beleive we probably have anxiety or an anxiety disorder of some kind. I'm on the same boat as you, I'm not yet sure what to do. So it doesn't make much sense for me to give you advice, but I'll give it to you anyways. I'd say, talk to someone, if not a therapist, perhaps the school counselor or your parents about this. If its really serious and won't go away I would say definately consult a doctor.
Hope this helps, I think its good to know that there are other people out there dealing with similar things.
