The transition from elementary school to middle school was difficult. Even worse was the transition from middle school to high school. During this period in my life I was diagnosed with anxiety disorder twice (grade 7 & 9). Both occurrences had an effect on my school performance and social life. Both had me thinking about my own mortality.
It was more so unexpected in grade 9, having already dealt with it. In Grade 7 I managed to cope with my problem, and by the time Grade 8 came I was back to being myself. But when it happened again in Grade 9 I never really felt like I made a successful recovery.
There is no doubt that I feel better than I did since the beginning of high school.
Though I haven't gotten that sense of belonging like I did back then, I still have a group of friends that make High school worth the while.
$1.35 for each.
My family only hope for the best. I want them to be proud that I've gotten this far, and I only hope I can do better from here.
