Honey that sounds like a panic attack. Tell me if they keep happening okay?
mom I felt like i couldn't breath and my stomach hurt at school today whenever i tried talking to someone
this is Jamie, Jamie is very scared to be the only 8th grader starting a new school.
Jamie has something called social anxiety disorder it means that she will have to work to retrain her brain to stop the panic attacks
NO YOUR WRONG!!!!
as she walked into her new school she sees some people that look like they could be nice and she's about to talk to them when suddenly she can’t breathe, her heart's racing and her stomach hurt. This starts to happen every time she tries to talk to someone new.
Yeah Jamie I'm Robert the person next to me is Leah and the girl in the purple is Lilly
Hey I'm Jamie can I hang out with you guys today
That night Jamie tells her mom what happened. her mom tells her that that was a panic attack and to tell her if they keep happening
why am I still lonely I don't understand, I have friends now why do I feel like this. I will feel better tomorow, right?
All through the week they keep happening so that weekend she goes with her mom to the doctor, she has something called social anxiety disorder, this means she has to work on making herself more confident
She doesn't want anything to be wrong with her so she tells herself it's all fake and monday at school she makes herself talk to other kids, she gets friends but she's still very nervous all the time
She has friends now but she still feels lonely and she doesn't know why, she ignores it thinking that she’ll get over it
