Hello SAD SOMETIMES,
Sounds like you’re feeling somewhat scattered and low lately. I get the sense that from what you’ve written, your life feels simultaneously full and empty; you feel isolated and without support, but also crave a sense of quiet aloneness. You mention having isolated yourself, but I can hear that – at least for family – that isolation has sometimes been safer for you. It sounds like things are moving really quickly for you and causing stress! I’m glad that you are reaching out to Youthspace to talk about it, and hope that it helps you feel like you’re a tiny bit less alone with the burden.
Would you like to talk more about the anxiety you’re feeling? I imagine that there might be a feeling of dread associated with going to a new school, especially if you haven’t had an easy time interacting with people in general recently.
Just to let you know, we are going to be removing the forums soon (within the next couple of weeks) from Youthspace.ca because they’ve been getting very few posts in the last few years. To make sure that you have support before we go taking this space away though, we wanted to ask if you’d like us to look up some other, similar public forums that you could post to (maybe some with more action!). You are also always welcome to use our chat service (open 6pm-12am PST every night), or email counselling (if you like a longer, one-on-one interaction – http://youthspace.ca/ecounselling/).
