Okay. So I was diagnosed with anxiety when I was in 5th grade. My parents know, I was tested though school. But I was always afraid to get help. I am now in 10th grade and I cannot function anymore because of my anxiety and anxiety attacks. So, it took a lot of me, but I reached out for help. I wrote my parents a letter because I couldn't work up the nerve to speak to them about any of this. I told my parents in this letter that I wanted to look into help such as therapy and/or medication. I also ended the letter by saying I wanted to have a face-to-face conversation, so we could properly discuss the matter. I received my response from my mum: "It's no big deal. Maybe you could try yoga? " It's been two weeks since that, and I don't think I can do it! I need help. How can I get help when my parents don't think anxiety is a big deal? How can I convince them that it is a big deal? I need help. And I wouldn't go to my parents unless I was 100% sure that this is what I need. I'm terrified of the idea of medication/therapy but I have learned that I cannot do this alone anymore. Help.
