I Don’t Want my Anxiety to Get in the Way

About: My aunt got her GED and she always knew how to be successful in life and a lot has been happening in my life during my teenage years.

Why you Left: Some of them are very supportive and some of them make fun of me.

Why Get Your GED: My parents got a divorce when I was 10. I was told one day when we had a family meeting outside. So I was numbed for about a year which led me to being home schooled. I then had to move VERY quickly and I had to stop for a while because of that. I’ve had severe anxiety, OCD and tourette’s my whole life and that made everything spike rapidly. I never really got help because I thought I’d get over it. I miss the happy, adventurous version of myself. Now I have many insecurities and I think I’m just weak.

Dreams: I have always had very good grades to be honest. I love learning because I want to know as much information before I die.

Comments: I am a musician and I have played publicly about 5 times at bars/restaurants. Music is one of my passions. I have famous musicians as references. I want to go to college and get a regular education but I don’t want my anxiety to get in the way.
