I'm not sure what to do? I'm in highschool and I would really like to finish, but I can't bring myself to do it. My anxiety is taking over my life. I want to be able to graduate with my class, but as of right now I can't go to school, just thinking about it gives me panic attacks, and when I go I have panic attacks there. My panic attacks get so bad that I get sick or vomit from it, and feel like I'm having a shaking heart attack. I'm not able to focus or concentrate on anything, and all I want to do it get out and leave. I am taking medicine for it, but it isn't helping. I'm on the verge of failing because I miss so many days due to it. I don't like leaving my house, or my mother or grandmother. I don't feel comfortable at school and am always worried. If I'm with my parents I am okay. Right now my only choice is to be home schooled because there is nothing else they can do for me? Do you have any suggestions?View Thread
