I've managed to get a psychiatrist to give me a new prescription my parents don't know about but I have to go to the doctors, hand it in, get them to give me the actual prescription and then go to boots to pick it up. All this makes me very anxious and I feel too depressed to even get up or out to do it. I also never ever leave the house and can't think of an excuse she'd believe (she's always already very suspicious despite me literally never acting out).

Alao, I have a few appointments with my doctor next month (which my mum takes me too) and she will mention if I've been prescribed something because she'll see it on my record and need to ask me about it in case she needs to change the dose or whatever.

(Also I'm 17 so I know legally they don't need to know but I have no privacy so worried they'll find out)

I'm feeling really trapped so any advice would be helpful, thanks!

Just say you want to go for a walk.

As for the appointments, cant't you just ask your mum to let you speak in private? Say you have embarrassing issues down below.
