Messed up

By Anonymous - 04/07/2022 15:30 - India - Gurgaon

Today, my brain is all messed up, and my stomach is churning at the thought of going to school, which starts from tomorrow. I was never like this before the lockdown at least. I liked going to school; now I despise it. My social life is now shit, and I have no idea if my mental health is alright. FML

If you have the means to do so, I'd highly recommend seeking mental health services. I'm not in school anymore, but after this pandemic I've been dealing with similar issues. Therapy can go a long way if that's an option you have. If you decide/are able to take this route, here are some general tips - When looking for a therapist, do your research just as when looking for a regular doctor. There's different modalities. To name a few that have pretty solid research behind them: -Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) -Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT) -Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT) -Emotion-Focused Therapy Remember that any therapist you find is working for *you*. You are allowed to ask for their qualifications, certifications, schooling, etc. You are allowed to tell them no. A very important question to ask them is if they *also* see a therapist. Any therapist that tells you they don't need their own therapist probably isn't a very good one. best of luck 💜

It's a commentary on the epidemic of gun violence here in the US. It's not a pandemic as no other country in the world has such levels of random murder.

I have an idea: your mental health is not alright. Too bad you don't live in a place where mentally-ill teens get priority access to high-powered firearms -- you could really teach your supposed tormentors a lesson they won't soon forget.

Here is the unpopular commentary. Its you. I mean you can go get help, which you should, but its all on you. Only you can pull yourself out of this. You may need help but ultimately you have get up and move on. Good luck OP.
