I'm currently in my first term at university and I'm really struggling with my anxiety. I moved about 2 hours away from home to university so I could have a student experience, but my anxiety means I'm not getting that experience as I can't go on nights out in fear of suffering a panic attack.
I go home every weekend as I'm massively homesick and hate being in halls as they are not homely and I feel so alone. I've tried everything from speaking to student services for support (who are massively overstretched), to joining a sports team and going to the gym.
I really don't know what to do as I'm already taking propranolol, I've received cbt for nearly 5 years and I feel like I'm just getting worse. I really feel like my anxiety is going to cause me to drop out of university but I feel trapped here as I do not want to let my friends and family down and I don't feel like I would be able to cope with a job with how my anxiety is at the moment.
Does anyone have any advice of how to get my anxiety under control?
