I know it hurts Matthew. I was 17 once, and it can be a tough and painful period of life - you are no longer a child, but you are not yet an adult. Stuck between two worlds, trying figure out who and what you are. But, as hard as it may be to believe now, it does get better. And, you won't be a teen forever - phew! Right now you are struggling and it's painful. You want to be all things to all people. You want everyone to like you. So, in the end you end up sacrificing your own identity. This is probably a common phenomana of teen angst. I won't lecture you and tell you what you should be doing, because I certainly had my own trials and tribulations as a teen. But, you need to be true to yourself and figure out what is that YOU really like doing. You will make friends I am sure of that, particularly once you start getting involved in things that really interest you. In the meantime, however, you need to work with your pdoc to get yourself stabilized on the right meds. And, work with your therapist to come to understand yourself. And, work on identifying the sources of your anger and anxiety.

People here care Matthew, and you have a safe haven here to talk about what is bothering you and the fears and insecurities you have. Keep reaching out, and keep working with your pdoc and therapist.

Be safe, and please take good care,

Tamara
