Hello, I'm new to the group and to this website, Daily Strength. I am 19 yrs old and gave yet to recieve a federally accepted diagnosis--
( I have been labeled the term by a hospital, counselors, therapists, interviewers and teachers, but not by a major institution that the government will acknowledge)-- but it's clear that I'm struggling with it, and I'm starting to feel worthless. Im having issues in school and I don't know what to do. Am I lazy, or do I really have issues?
I don't know what is wrong with me! I am so sad and don't understand why. I don't remember much of this year and that is really frustrating to me. I know at one point I had friends but now I don't. I have no idea what happened with that but I'm starting to wonder if maybe I'm just meant to be alone. So so sad and so incredibly alone. I don't know what to do or even how to feel.
I'm more apprehensive than anything. I know what to expect with the procedure but I have no clue how I'll respond to it. I understand how it's done but everyone responds differently to everything so where I have collected all kinds of information on ECT I have been unable to predict how my body's chemistry will react. I'll keep you posted. Oh and I feel a lot better!
