So i need help

Postby belladaisy2018 » Mon Apr 16, 2018 3:50 am


So I'm diagnosed with Generalised Anxiety Disorder and my friends are all fully aware of this and I have explained it to them

but.. whenever i try to reach out for support (which is a rarity now) I'm just completely ignored and my problems are disvalued.

example-- i tried talking to them about a situation that i didn't know how to deal with because it was making my anxiety really bad and they barely responded and just told me to deal with it? and a similar situation happened again just now where i explicitly said my anxiety was really bad and that i'd just had another panic attack - again, ignored and they continued talking about what was triggering me even when i asked kindly if they would stop

not sure what to do because i have basically no support network and it's too difficult to deal with alone, surely im not asking for much?

i want to try explain this to them but i don't want to come across mean/ungrateful for their friendship but they are making it so much harder to deal with

any advice is greatly appreciated, thank you x

I'm new to this forum and i have been reading a few posts and came across yours. i suffer anxiety and depression, really bad at the minute. i do have support luckily but like you I've told people and they seem to dismiss how bad i feel. i think that we have told people how we feel but they just don't "get it" I'm sure they don't do it intentionally, but that doesn't help much
