I have only recently turned over a new stone that I had not even known existed. With PTSD, anxiety, and depression all surfacing at once, as well as severe ADHD, it has been an incredible struggle. I shake, muscles tensing, eyes widened, rapid and intense blinking, scribbling all over the page in front of me as I continue to cover the entire piece of paper with my arms whenever my peers' eyes begin lingering in my direction. I grab my hair and comb through it constantly with my hands as I look crazily around the room at the chattering individuals that are disturbing the peace. My thoughts often are a blur, staggered and fragmented processes that move at a sluggish pace. It's so hard to focus on anything for long periods without my sanity scattering into twitching as well as unprovoked, annoying outbursts.

It's tough, I know, and I don't even take any medication other than high dosages of ADHD medication, which may only be worsening the issues. I know that it will eventually get better and I will thrive in my community as well as in school.

Have you ever tried drinking a warm drink, or taking a warm bath when you're at home? If I get flashbacks/etc, there's really not much I can do, so I'll usually just lay in bed entirely under the covers until they go away. However when I get panic attacks, etc. I usually try drinking something warm, or taking a warm bath, watching tv (for some reason tv really helps my panic attacks!)

I hope you find something that helps :(

Er, wow. I don't think she has the right to do that. I'd go above her head. Do you know how to contact the board or the superintendent?

Wow I feel this so much to! My teachers and stuff don't get me either and almost "feels sorry" for me which I fricken hate cuz they know a lot of the story I guess from my guardians and/or counselor and "just in case" or some crap. I hate feeling like singled out because sometimes I can't concentrate enough on there class or something. :mad:

Your not alone. Sometimes I hold ice cubes or something when I have a flashback. The cold feeling kinda helps me keep my focus on that.
