  • ocd? panic attacks

    Hi this is my first time posting. I'm only 16. So about a month ago I was on the phone with this guy Im clearly too attached too. He told me about this girl hes been seeing. This basically caught me off guard and I was very upset. This was late at night around 4a.m. I was very upset but that was it... after I got off the phone I had a panic attack and all sorts of horrible thoughts. These thoughts are so crazy to me such as harming friends or family. I even started questioning God. I freaked out even more, but the thoughts have been with me for about a month. I've told my father and about the amount of stress and worry they bring me. Ive already made an apt. With a mental heath doctor. But to be clear I don't want these thoughts. Does anybody know what the heck is going on? I'm SO anxious 24/7 now.. i feel sometimes as if i dont have control. this is so unlike me. Before all of this I was happy and didn't have such morbid thoughts. Could I have an anxiety disorder or a chemical imbalance? Please help. I panic over being psycho and I hate it.

  • Hi Amanda, welcome to WH.

    Until you have some routine tests honestly, no one can answer you other than a professional. But, I'm glad that your Father listened and made an appointment.

    Disappointments in life naturally create havoc in our thinking patterns. And each disappointment can make you feel worse, there is only so much anyone can take..

    I was wondering though, you stated "before" do you mean before this boy you had been talking to, you were "ok" still suffered anxiety but not with morbid thoughts?

    I would also suggest that you see a Counsellor, is your Mother still in the picture? I think perhaps you have past things in your life that you are hurt by that you need to talk out with someone outside the family.

    We all have sweet and it's "ok" to see someone to sort it all out in your mind so you can move on being happy in life.

    Good luck with the tests and discussions and please come back and let us know how you go.


    • Hello again!And yes I was okay before this guy said that, I had anxiety but after this it got out of control. And my mom isn't in the picture. She left when I was young.

        Hi lori

        when your heart is racing or skipping beats that IS a very scary thing!

        I hope you are able to find out if anything is wrong when you have the echo
