I've suffered with anxiety for over 9 years now. I'm still young, i'm only 21 so i feel like a lot of my teenage years were robbed from me & were spent severly depressed & not leaving the house due to agoraphobia. I don't work because my panic attacks are constantly holding me back & preventing me from being able to get a job. I don't like being alone & am constantly depending on other people to be around for me which makes me feel like i'm a burden. It's a very lonely place & even have support around you, it can feel very lonely and frustrating! I can't remember the last time when i felt panic free & felt like i was actually living a normal life. I take 200mg of sertraline every day (been on it since i was about 15). I've tried every form of counselling.. cams, hypnotherapy, priory, re-think.. but nothing seems to be able to help me beat this anxiety for good! At 21 i feel like my life is just over before it's even begun. I see everyone around me doing things & going out & having fun and it's soul destroying because i want to be able to do that. I have so many ambitions & things i want to achieve in life but i just feel so helpless all the time. Anyone relate to this? Or have any words of wisdom i'd appriciate it
