Anytime you notice that something is wrong, you should seek help. You should not ignore potential symptoms of a mental health disorder. The longer you wait to deal with this issue, the further behind you will be in school. Is your anxiety the reason why you aren’t studying or is it being used as an excuse? Something is stopping you from studying and succeeding at school. It’s that “something” which is important. You need to find out what it is. A professional can help you find the answers.
The problem may be anxiety and depression, but diagnosing over the Internet is impossible. You should be evaluated, in-person, by a mental health professional.
Anxiety often follows a common course, and it is commonly made worse when the symptoms are ignored. Ignoring panic attacks will not make them go away. Symptoms of anxiety often require professional treatment.
The most efficient solution to this problem is to seek help from a mental health professional. Therapy helped you in the past and you have every reason to expect it would now, if you were to start again. Choose a therapist who specializes in anxiety. The find help tab, at the top of this page, can assist you in finding a therapist in your community. Please take care.
