Let me start with a bit of context. I am 24. I've never lived away. I've tried twice for university. I kept having panic attacks and locking myself in my room. I lost tonnes of weight and was severely anxious and depressed. I moved back both times and commuted to university - A 5 hour round trip. That's how bad it was.
I've lived at home since I graduated. I got a good job and I just save the money up. Whenever someone asks me, I'm embarrassed to admit I still live at home and just make an excuse about wanting to save money up...even I started to believe that for a while.
Now my parents are divorcing. Selling the house and going separate ways. I'm finding the divorce hard on it's own but once paired with the fact that it's obviously expect at my age I will now move away on my own rather than pick a parent...it's crippling me.
I know this sounds pathetic to the average person. I get it. I know there's a normal degree of uncertainty associated with moving away but most people look forward to it and want it. I can't quite describe the anxiety and panic it gives me. I know that it is not normal.
I don't know what to do about it :-/
