Anxiousness – I need advice

I’ve had anxiety and depression for four years now. I don’t know how to overcome it. I take medicine for depression, but still I have anxiety. I feel so out of place among kids my age. I can’t focus on what they say and I honestly don’t care what they say.

Is that normal for anxiety?

My parents say I was happy even as a baby. But now all I can think about is what people might think of me. I’ve switched schools five times, and I think that played a factor in my anxiety. I just don’t know what to do to get out of it. It seems so much a part of me now that I can’t picture myself without it. Maybe this is just how I am.

I’m confused. Help me? I go to a counselor yet I am still unsure of myself. It’s not fair to me that I’m going through this. I know God addresses anxiety, but basically He just says to cast it away from your hearts. I can’t do that. Does anybody know what I mean? Please pray for me.
