I don't know how to ask for help... because i don't know whats wrong..
My mom and I never got along until i moved out.. shes been picking me up and taking me to work for the last week. I had a stress induced anxiety attack two weeks ago and I haven't been the same since. Shes forcing me into things i really know are good for me but my brain keeps fighting it (as it has my whole life)... "Ashlee, no one can do anything for you you cant do for yourself" .. "Ashlee, You're weak".. "Ashlee, You're faking it" I can remember multiple points in my life saying the words "i need help" Alone in my bed... "i need to seek counseling"... I just... i cant remember what happened that led me to those thoughts. Im so good at forgetting. but there's a part of me that blew up.. that still remembers.. that's still traumatized. I cant stop that part of me from crying and freaking out all the time and i can feel myself begining to blame it on the only people who are trying to help me. Idk how to stop this...

I saw in your other post that you're in therapy and on meds, that's not helping at all? Perhaps a different approach might be beneficial?

You might stop by therapyalternatives.org, they have some good information on additional things you can try, they even have separate sections on anxiety and other conditions.

I hope you are feeling better. Stress is awful and I think just having someone on the end of a phone listening to you helps!! Seriously, services like the Samaritans are really good, and they ask nothing in return. This organisation isn't just for people who are desperate with life......
