    Hi there, I am 18 years old, and have suffered from anxiety in total for about 5 years. I (through my own fault, and other things) have drifted apart from my best friend of 7 years, and my group of friends in general. All I really have are my family and my amazing most supportive boyfriend of nearly 18 months. He has been amazing throughout my anxiety and depression, as it has gotten a lot worse over the past year. I am an 18 (turning 19 a week today) year old girl just looking for people to talk to my age that have gone through the same thing? I luckily feel a lot better about my anxiety and depression now and now feel able enough to fully move forward with it all.

    I can say that even though I wasn't that bad, I had the exact same problem. So you're not alone!

    Better fix an formal appointment with the psychologist to get the right answer for your question.

    Hey, I also suffer from depression and anxiety. I know what you're going through, I lost some of my old friends because of it. I'm getting gradually better now though, I have my ups and downs but my new friends are an amazing support, if your old friends didn't stick around because of your mental health that's not your fault they just weren't very good friends.

    Your boyfriend is a friend too so you haven't lost all your friends.
