    Stuck in the biggest rut of my life , i left sixth form last year to go on a so called gap year but nothing useful has come of it , i do nothing useful now and i fear i am falling into depression , i can not sleep , i have developed anxiety to the point where panic attacks are a frequent occurrence , the highlight of my week will be going out to the local pub and drinking too much , and masking my true feelings. Just thought i would share perhaps it may help me.

    Is there anyone close to you that you can talk about this to?? Or have you thought about a counsellor??*
    Maybe swap the local pub for the local leisure centre or enrol in a night class for something you enjoy to get you back into the routine of doing something?

    Please speak to your gp, anxiety and panic attacks are a serious issue and you need to speak to a professional, like you said, you're in a rut but you can get out with the right help, don't be afraid of doing the right thing for yourself, speak to your friends and family about how you're feeling and try to think as positively as you can in the mean time, have you thought about the things you might want to do in life? If not, try comprising a list of everything you can think of, big or small and make a promise to yourself that from now on, every one of your actions will be towards happiness for yourself, you deserve a long, fulfilling life and you can have that if you get the right guidance, good luck op

    Same here:-P email someone? Or even a diary can help i found and even tho*you aren't telling telling anyone it helps to get your thoughts down on paper and they seem a bit more manageable. If that feels a bit too useless then try setting up an anonymous blog, recommend wix*http://www.wix.com/freesitebuilder/9...FfAy0wod2QgCHw*i know this sounds a bit girl online-ish but there is a reasoning behind these techniques.
    To help with the panic attacks, you could research breathing/calming*techniques online??
