Hi, This is my first post ever to a forum like this ... kinda nervous! I have discovered in the past 2 months that I am suffering quite badly from anxiety ... but the past few weeks it has gotten increasingly worse. I'm 19 y/o and female. The circumstances that have made it worse are these - I live with my boyfriend at uni, but I am home for summer now and I don't handle being away from him so well, I spent almost every day of the past year with him, and having to suddenly have that taken away is really hard for me, especially when our communication is limited due to the business
Because of depression and social anxiety I decided to take a day of college. A day turned into two days and suddenly I skipped the entire week. The more I skip the harder it is to go back. Also I lied to everyone and said I was really sick. I feel awful for skipping in the first place and lying, and weak for not being able to go back. Now all the work I missed is stressing me out on top of it! I just want to curl up into a ball and stay at home forever or just die.
