    Every day when i go to school i panic on the bus, panic before class and when i try to do homework. It s only been a month since school started and I ve already cried in almost every class over silly things. It s really embarrassing and I m always scared at school because of it. I also get too scared to go to the wellbeing office because it s always the same people there and it makes me worried that I don t belong there and only people with real issues should go. My mum thinks I m just trying to get out of school if i mention it and usually tells me that because I m a teenager and I m supposed to feel like crap all the time.

    Whenever i go out i feel really uncomfortable I had to go doctors yesterday and the room was full of people i nearly had a panic attack and told my mum i need to go outside. When i come back in people stare as we walk to the doctor door. I'm fine talking one to one but can't deal with loads of people, I freeze, shake, have panic attacks anytime I see loads of people. When we're out in the car I have my head down They don't know me, but anytime i go out someone looks at me and i get paranoid they think I'm ugly or something, even though I know I'm not They just give me funny looks all the time and I swear its not in my head. I don't get it do people with anxiety hold themselves or carry themselves a certain way or...?

    My whole life I've had really low self esteem and the last few years I've been in lots of therapy and mental hospitals for suicide attempts and stuff. My friends always tease me by bringing knifes to school with them and ask me if I want to kill myself. They leave me put of everything and then call me a loner for not joining in. They call me "depressed school shooter" which f*cks with me so bad. They always tell me I'm never gonna get a girlfriend because of the way I think but I can't help the way I think about myself if it's the truth. They tell me to kill myself but then tell me they're joking. They always ask me to smoke weed with them because they know I take drug tests every week because of drug and alcohol abuse in my past. It's pretty much everything they say is to hurt me. I hate them so much but I don't want to be alone. I don't want to sit in a bathroom alone during lunch or wait for school to start alone. What do I do? I have no one except for them.

    I have diagnosed depression and I'm currently getting professional help. I have these thoughts constantly and no matter what I do they will not leave my mind. I would never actually do anything though

    So my fiance' just obtained this new job. She's had it for three months now and has grown very fast with the company. Today she told me got a really big commission today and has gotten another raise from her boss because she's doing really well with sales in a 3 month period. We were laying in bed and I was curious on what got her her success. She told me she flirts with her clients so they will keep coming back to her. She assured me she doesn't do anything physical with them she said there's nothing wrong with making people feel a little good about themselves. I was baffled by her response, but i bit my tongue and congradulated her and let her know i was very proud of her success. However it disgusts me that these men are sleazing over her and I feel I lost a little respect for her as a person :/ How do I tell her this? or do i even tell her?
