The light

When I lost my brother this year, I thought there was no way out because I was very attached to him and all those memories we made together are gone now – they have become nothing but precious memories that will make me laugh and that will make me cry bitterly because I know that there is no more…

Believe me, it was hard and I was falling apart day by day thinking that it wouldn’t get better. But then my best friend who I met when I was only 7 years old came to my door. That night when she came I knew that I could still see a way out of all this that oppresses me. That way out was her, my support to whom I could confide from the day we met until today…

She kept coming to my house every night after school, despite all the school duties she set aside time to come and support me.

You are not alone and when you think you are, you always have someone by your side whom you can confide in and who will always give you a hand when you need it most. Don’t be afraid to say what you feel and what depresses you, because you are not alone – confide in your mom, a friend, to a brother, sister or school pedagogue, to anyone you consider very close because believe me so you will feel free and it will be easier.

I believe that you are strong and that you will manage to fight and try to move on. You have to, you are not alone, say what hurts you because there are those who can really help and ease the pain you feel.

I’m not afraid

I felt agitated, I couldn’t function normally, I had chaos in my head, a lot of thoughts that I couldn’t catch. Physically, it was fatigue and panic in certain situations. Also, I had no motivation for anything, I couldn’t go to school, follow the schedule, the routine I had before. I felt very anxious, losing concentration, overwhelmed and terrified at the thought of going to school. Then the panic attacks started and I was very afraid to go to school. At that time, I started high school, so I explained it all with the fear of a new school, but later I saw that it wasn’t just that. When I started the 2nd grade, I was better, and thought that everything was getting better, but then I got scared again and it was all tiring and discouraging. It wasn’t until the end of the school year that I felt the difference and saw that it was better for me to go to school.

I’m fine now, but in certain situations I still feel anxious.

What has helped me and what still is helping me to get through all this is talking about it with my psychologist – therapist. When I couldn’t function normally it helped me to stay at home, but on the other hand it was hard to be alone with my thoughts, so talking to a therapist helped a lot, together with learning with her certain steps to get used to panic attacks and learn to deal with them. What also helps is having few friends in my class that know about my situation, they understand and empathize with me and are a great support.
