What is your question?
Thinking about my mother has been giving me a lot of anxiety recently. Because my mother suffers from bipolar disorder and has been in and out of mental hospitals since I was 11 years old. But she's been in a mental hospital for the past four months and I haven't been able to see her. And during this period, I've become distanced from my mother and haven't wanted to talk to her. And no one knows anything about my mother's illness. So I was thinking about how I would tell them because I occasionally have panic attacks when I think about my mother, and I simply want my friends to be aware of her and my panic attacks so they can help me.
You have obviously been through a lot lately and I want you to just take a break and breath, breathing has helped me personally through something called stress-induced asthma. This disease makes me have a hard time breathing when I'm stressed out. I know this might be scary and tough for you. I think that if you want to make your friends aware of what is happening in your life, you should just tell them. I think that they will understand. If they don't, they are the wrong people for you. I don't think you should have to make telling your friends should be a big deal unless you want it to be. You could just bring it up and make them aware. If you need anyone to talk to I suggest that you go to the school counselor or a hope squad member. these people will listen and help you.
