The anxiety is killing me. I struggle to leave my house by myself because of the fact that I'm scared that people will try to talk to me and judge me.

I know the feeling...I'm in the same boat...i have anxiety/social anxiety, major depressive disorder, ptsd...I too, feel very nervous people will judge me& dont leave my house that often.. It gets lonely. I dont have many friends due to it & struggle talking to people due to social anxiety. some days are a little better than others though. If you like to chat, you can message me sometime

The worst part is my boyfriend has social anxiety too so we don't really hang out with many people besides our friends.

Im sorry. I know Its tough...I've dealt with depression/anxiety close to 25 years...actually I think I had the social anxiety since I was a child...I've learned over the years to take small steps....nothing too overwhelming...for me, its making it to the store (someplace close by). Or anything at all that you feel comfortable with. I talk with an understanding family member (or anyone you feel comfortable with)on a daily basis. And i do therapy& meds .(for me they only help a little..I've been through lists of them over the years). My sister took me to a spa. I know they can be expensive but it helped my anxiety a bit...herbal teas also helped a little...its a working progress that takes time...I'm still struggling&at times i feel like I cant relate with anyone. I'm thankful to come across this site

I have had huge anxiety problems, I am pansexual.and since I came out to my family, I have not gotten accepted, no one loves me anymore, no one except for my sister because she is also in the LGBTQ community but she is getting ready to leave for college so I will be all alone again. I also have severe depression because of my first breakup, he said that he would always love me and we would do everything together but he left me because he found out about my sexuality and displayed it all over school, no one has accepted me since...
