Looking for a listening ear and advice.

Posted , 2 users are following.

hi everyone.  My names Lauren and I'm 21 years old and from Scotland.  I've had severe anxiety and depression since I was 16 but the past 6 months I have completely plummeted.  I can't leave my house.  I panic as soon as I leave my bedroom.  I live with my parents who treat me as a 12 year old and get severely angry with me on a daily basis which makes me worse.  

I am on a lot of different medication, have seen countless therapists and phycaitrists and even councillors.  I'm at the end of the road.  

I can't work, I can't see my friends, I can't be a normal 21 year old.  

I am currently thinking of asking for a referral to go into the hospital called prior wellbeing and staying there until I feel better.  I can't live like this.  It's a private hospital but I need to drastic measures and change and get better or I really think I will do something silly.

i can't find any reviews on the prior wellbeing, has anyone taken this measure to be seen privately? Did it help?

Im looking for any kind of advice or help.  I'm broken, scared and in a really dark place.  Thank you for reading x
