Hi, this is my first time reach out to someone. I wanted to ask what advice you can give to me about anxiety. I have had anxious moments through my life just like anyone else but never on a scale where it has affected me severly until recently. In senior year, there were days I would just lay in bed after school after a good day but then ponder "Senior year is almost here. I spent my childhood and school life with most of these kids who I get along with and some are my friends but then doubt sometimes if they really liked me". I'm in my senior year of college and the first half of the pandemic, I felt that I could get through this but when I went fully online for the fall in 2020 since I was unsure of coming back to campus physically, I felt a dip in my emotions. I was unmotivated, distracted, uncaring and anxious even when I had nothing specific to be anxious about. Now those anxious moments come in the form of hearing noises when I wake up, remebering its outside during the early hours of the morning but it feels so loud and makes me sensitive or anxiety keeping me from falling asleep that I go straight for my phone. Or even having an anxious thought about "what ifs" these its on repeat like a broken record through the rest of the day. Besides that, its hard for to open up to my parents about it. They are amazing, I love them and they always tell me that I can talk to them if something is bothering me, but I doubt sometimes and it's still not easy.
