Hi, I'm 23 and around 4 weeks ago I began having severe anxiety and panic attacks - from built up stress I think (was also meant to start a new job 3 weeks ago but I've only been in a few days, and I'm not sure it's for me) my doctor told me to have a few weeks off yesterday too.
I started on 10mg citalopram 3 days ago & have been prescribed lorazepam too (I find these just make me tired, but don't take my anxiety away so not very helpful!)
Basically I feel AWFUL... To the point I just want to give up and die.
I am SEVERLY anxious 24/7, haven't been able to leave my house since I've started on these (and barely left my house before anyway due to anxiety) I am being sick throughout the day, no appetite (even the thought of food makes me physically sick) I've managed a few grapes and half a bowl of soup in 3 days, another thing to worry about!!
I've only read bad stories how this doesn't get rid of anxiousness. And as mine is so severe I'm feeling negative about things.
I just want my life back 😢
I've panicked so much I've been ringing every possible helpline every hour - no panic/ Samaritans/ 111/ mental health crisis team. I felt like I need someone to come round and help me but they've done nothing.
I feel so lonely and scared 😢 I live with my boyfriend who is supportive but I feel guilty he has to put up with this.
Please help 😢
