    Advice?

    Hola everyone.
    I need some help. I'm thirteen and have symptoms of ocd, depression, and anxiety. I can't tell my parents because our family is tight on money, and I don't want them worrying. But I have been dealing with this for two years now and I decided I needed help.
    Most symptoms are:
    Unstable emotions
    When clicking on a link surrounded by at least two others, doing the pattern:
    Up, middle, down, middle, up, middle.

    Obsessive teeth grinding
    The constant feeling someone is standing at the end of my bed whenever I am in my room. (Mainly as a consequence of an event a couple of months ago)
    Among many others.

    Please give me any advice, or a way I can get help from a professional without telling my parents.

    Much appreciated <3

    Hi Idc... welcome. I'm sorry you are going through all that. What country are you from?

    Have you considered asking at school and seeing what help they can give you?

    Hello needshelp.
    I'm from Australia, and yeah I've thought about asking at school, but they would involve my parents, I don't want them to worry about me. Also I don't know if I have the confidence to tell them :/ So.. yeah. If you know anything at all that would help that'd be great ^_^

    Hey Idc sorry I didn't see you had replied. It's rea;;y tough to fight it on your own. I know you're worried about involving your parents, but you may have to. Maybe you should talk to someone at school, tell them you have an issue that you need to discuss confidential (at least to start with) they may come up with something to help. It''s always difficult to ask for help, so maybe write stuff down and show them?

    Hi needshelp
    Thanks again for the advice ^-^ Fair enough, I need to tell someone about it. I'll ask someone at school, and I guess I can't hide that from my parents for too long. But I guess they have to find out, so there is a chance whoever I talk to at school could tell my parents for me, so yeah Thanks for all the help!

    Hi idc
    Good luck with asking at school, I know it's not the easiest thing to do, but will be beneficial in the long run. Let us know how it goes?
