    This is my story. I can't go to school because I have extreme cases of Social Anxiety and I can't stay home because, well I have to do something with my life and I'm down to two decisions: Go to school even though it will a torture going to school with extreme anxiety and paranoia or kill myself and not be a burden to my family. I'm attending college and the semester will start soon and it seems like I want to choose death rather than face my pains. I'm so confused right now.

    Have you sought help for your anxiety and paranoia? Maybe there are things you can do differently to help you cope enough to go to school and continue your education. I hope you choose to at least try. I don't think your family would feel you had been such a burden that they would rather you were no longer around. please take care and stay safe. :hug:

    Please don't think of death as the easy way out, you say you're confused but there are people who can help. You won't be a burden to your family if you continue living; think how much more pain it would cause them if you left and they thought they could've helped you. Please stay safe, remember there's always someone here to talk to :hug:

    I hope you'll first seek out medical and/or therapeutic help. There are ways to help you work through your problems. I hope for you that some day, you'll be able to look back on these hard times and be proud you moved on.

    You could always look into earning credits at home on the computer. I've taken an online course before and they're pretty good. Or you can try your best and overcome your social anxiety and attend college classes. But please, don't kill yourself. Your parents will be heartbroken and you will be wasting a good life. :hug:

    I agree with everyone else, get help for your anxiety, there's lot's of things that'll help, medication wise and attending therapy. Maybe you can stay home for a while and home school yourself until you feel better, just take it at your own pace. Don't put too much pressure on yourself, that'll only make you feel worse.

    Please tell us your problems if you feel its not something very personal but I would say that don't sacrifice your career.

    What pains are you talking about?

    Social anxiety is more than just fear.....what goes thru your mind thinking about school,taking classes and the other students?

    What paranoia ?

    How did you get thru the last 10 years of your life?

    I agree with Dave. You can sign up for homestudy,or you can attend night classes. There would be less people to deal with. That is something you would need to work out with your school counselor. It always makes me happy to see someone continue there schooling even though they are going thru depression. I hope the best for you!! if you need to talk PM me. TAKE CARE!!!!!

    I have Aspergers Syndrome, this is probably the worst you can get when it comes to Social Phobia and anxiety of all kinds. It might be worth looking into counselling. Unlike a psych they take the time to get to know you, do not push any meds or invasive treatments. They work alongside and through any problems you present, instead of what they think is best for you. I am having it and it is really helping me a lot.

    You could try seeking help for your anxiety and paranoia, this might then allow you to go to college. Death is not the way out though. You have a future ahead of you, you just need a little help to get you started. :hug:
