You're a teenager, it'll be over in 6 or so years.
If it's true, it's true.
It's a conservative estimate, after you're 21 you're simply forced to grow up.
Well it depends on if you're displaying symptoms of other things. I'm not going to blame it on your age, because honestly not everyone feels that way at your age.
Do you find that you're like this all the time? Or does it go on for a certain amount of time and then go away? Is it triggered by something, like the behavior of people around you or a thought?
It could be a symptom of depression or anxiety. Really, if you try to get down to it, and they say you have depression they're going to put you on pills. Not a good answer.
I'd say start by figuring out what it is about the people that triggers it, something they say or do or something about them? Do you feel pressure around them or is it something more direct? Sorry, I ask a lot of questions. I understand being scared by it, and I don't think it's going to go away quickly, but if you work on it little by little it should get better.
Hm, I can't think of more to ask. Maybe do some research on different types of anxiety issues that cause emotional numbness, if you can pin point what it might be, then finding solutions is possible.
That's all I can say, sorry.
Unless I see your MD certificate and your pshichiatric diploma, that stamente is both feelgood trite and meaningless. He's not special (no offense Jello), it's a phase. Depression is a chemical reaction, not a sentimental one so please, don't say what you know the other party wants to hear because that's missinformation of the highest caliber.
Listen, **** happens and **** affects you more deeply at your age. It is perfectly normal to feel the way you do. You end up toughening up, trust me, things get better.
You build your own happiness. relationships may seem like the road to but fulfillment can come from other sources.
I'm not trying to say that's what it is, I'm just saying not to rule it out. I wasn't saying he was "special" a lot of people have anxiety issues and depression. It might be a phase but that doesn't mean there isn't a way to deal with it.
If there is a problem and it's ignored, it doesn't help in the future. That's all.
Anxiety is not retroactive. In other words, if he has anxiety in 15 years it is not like a hidden tumour. It's a dynamic process and right now it's the personality building phase, it may seem like depression but, hell, who hasn't had heartburn at 14! Jesus, this is what we call the nanny state.
The nanny state XD
Look, I'm admit maybe I'm just a little careful about it. I've lost 5 friends to suicide because people didn't take their symptoms seriously and things slowly snow balled over time until there was nothing to be done. I didn't want to dismiss things without getting more information, it's how I am.
