    I am a sophomore in high school and I really can't stand my life, I don't hardly have any friends and I never do anything. I sit at home all day and play computer or watch tv. We just switched to a new semester in school and I hot 2 new classes. Gym and Woodworking, I have really high anxiety and always feel awkward everywhere I am but my house. So I went to the first couple days of gym and I am fine in that class, though I don't know anyone and I feel and look like a loser. Woodworking for some reason I can't stand it at all, the teacher is one of the kind that will pick on kids at random and if they don't know it they will make a joke about the persons stupidity. So while I sit in class I am so uncomfortable and have so bad of anxiety I just want to die. So I have missed around 2 weeks of school just so I don't have to go to class and feel awkward.

    Now I probably will fail this quarter and then I will be behind in credits and won't be able to graduate and my life will suck for ever. I find the concept of school stupid, our school if you miss a certain amount of days you have to pay a fee and do community service. I will never do either of those so I guess I won't graduate. It's not my fault I have anxiety and I am shy and I have problems!

    Hey Relentless.

    I can relate to how you're feeling.
    Just two weeks ago I was so depressed I was going to quit school altogether.
    I even got to the point where I was suicidal. I'd taken two weeks off school, I'd missed loads of classes; and got the worst parents evening report of my life. I'm the type that's always in trouble... I spend more time outside the Head/Principal's office than in lessons :laugh:

    Anyway, now, I'm back at school and I'm feeling better. Sure, I still hate the place, but I'm coping - thanks to my friends.
    You'll make friends in your new classes, I always did - so don't worry about it.
    I'm not the most confident of people myself.
    As for that woodwork teacher, fight fire with fire. It's what I do. They take the piss outta you, you do it to them - but don't go too far...
    I have a teacher like this. He hates my guts, always getting me into trouble and telling my friends parent's that I distract them in class. He says I'm too cocky or something... In fact, I have an ongoing detention with him, starting Monday.

    Sorry for the rant :tongue:
    All I mean to say is, that it does get better. Stick at it, and you'll get there.
    As for that teacher, if you feel this teacher is picking on you in particular, go see your principal about it. Teacher's should NOT be doing that.

    :hug: hope you feel better soon hunni

    It is, actually. There are in fact much better ways to "get an education" - some of which actually involve learning rather than memorizing silly things.

    I wish I could do some other form of schooling, I have been thinking of dropping out and getting my GED but that would leave me no where? I don't know I just can't stand school or life anymore.
