So for a while now I've suffered with social anxiety, this causes me to feel pretty low a lot of the time. My social anxiety basically stops me from doing so many things, making new friends, going to parties, getting a boyfriend, getting a job bla bla bla... I have now gotten to the point where I no longer want to leave the house, the last time I left the house with my friends was over 2 weeks ago. I recently had my GCSEs and my social anxiety stopped me for asking teachers for help, or even asking others. I'm pretty sure I didn't pass a couple and didn't do as well as I could of.

Me not seeing people has just left me feeling extremely empty, sort of like not really having any point of being happy anymore. I feel so depressed and I just don't really have anyone to talk to that won't judge me or call me dramatic. No one I know remotely understands what it's like so i'm just always being left in the dark. I desperately don't want to feel like this anymore. How can I be happy again and get over this stupid phobia?

I would agree with Little Popcorn that seeing your GP would be a good idea. What you've described sounds a lot like social anxiety. The good news is that you don't need to suffer through this; there is help available. Given your age, I imagine a doctor would put you on the waiting list for therapy rather than giving you medication. NHS waiting lists can be pretty long so you could try checking out the online therapy program Moodgym in the meantime. I hope you feel better soon, anxiety and depression really suck.

I did go to counselling on this 6 weeks program thing and it helped a ton, like was getting to the point where I was no longer feeling nervous and was finally feeling like my social anxiety was slipping away.But when the summer holidays came I obviously started seeing less people and spent all my time at home and in bed, I think I have relapsed into my bad social anxiety stage again.

Thanks, I think seeing my GP is a good idea, I really want to feel better before I start sixth form as well and try and get back to my normal self.
