I really wish my friends would stop acting like they know me better than they really do and better than I know myself.
I tried to talk to a friend today about something I haven’t talked to anyone about because although I know I shouldn’t be, I am embarrassed by it. Being a psychology major, I should know that there is nothing to be embarrassed by, but I can’t help the way I feel. I haven’t talked about it on here because I don’t want to be labeled crazy.
I tried to tell a friend today that I really think I need therapy, and possibly medication because I think I have an anxiety disorder.
My friend dismissed my concerns and said that there is nothing wrong with me.
I tried to explain to my my friend that they don’t know what goes on in my head, so they can’t say that there is nothing wrong with me, because they don’t know that.
They continued to say that there is nothing wrong with me.
I discontinued the conversation because I just wanted to scream at my friend that being worried about everything, all the time, isn’t normal. Having panic attacks over small things, that most people don’t worry about, isn’t normal. Feeling depressed sometimes because you have anxiety all the time isn’t normal.
So there’s some of my crazy. I’d appreciate support, not judgement. I already feel anxious about putting this out there as it is.
