I’m 17 and I’ve developed an intense anxiety surrounding the political climate, and corona virus policy. Whenever i try and listen to a podcast and they have pointless covid talk, or turn the news on or anything involving politics or corona virus, I can’t help but fall into such a deep depression and anxiety a level of which i can barely try and explain. I feel so terrible and hopeless constantly. I’ve began having near daily panic attacks and am quite afraid to go outside but i am still managing too. I don’t know what to do, I am utterly lost. I’ve never experienced such a constant and intense dread and I can’t see a way out. The world feels to be falling apart and i realise every generation has their problems of the age but this time it really does feel as if everything’s going to become awful or this insane obsession with postmodernism will be defeated but if that’s true, it’s gonna have to get worse before it gets better. The thought of the future terrifies me, i cant sleep, and i never feel like eating. But idk maybe im going insane. Both prospects terrify me equally.
