I have anxiety, like pretty much a lot of people on here do and I can't tell if its regular anxiety because I'm a teenager or if it's a serious problem. The line is kind of blurred. Along with that though, also I have many reasons to believe I have emetophobia. Whenever I see someone, or get the feeling of vomiting I start shaking uncontrollably sometimes crying or feeling dizzy and light headed. I don't know why but I'm just absolutely terrified of it. But I haven't been diagnosed professionally, and I just want some help for it. Along with that, I have Ulcerative Colitis which is a chronic digestive disease which symptoms sometimes include nausea and vomiting, so it's really starting to get in the way of, well... everything. In the past I've had anxiety attacks, one in specific I was sent to the counselor at school and I explained I had anxiety a lot. But I never specified beyond that point or why I got anxiety, and nobody (or me) has followed up on it. So it's been getting worse. The main problem I have is just I don't know how to put it into words or express myself? My parents are extremely caring people, and I know they would understand if I told them but I still can't do it. I still can't open up to anyone and I have no idea why and I just want someone to help. So I guess to sum up this very long and personal paragraph, does anyone know any ways I could tell my parents about the problems I'm experiencing so I can actually get some help for them?
