I have severe anxiety about going out of my house because of the stuff that is going on nowadays like stabbings, bomb attacks, acid attacks, shootings, bullies/kids killing people etc. I just don’t want to die that way or be a victim. The only place that I feel safe is at home.

A lot of the people who this happens to are targeted because they're in with the wrong crowd, they've upset somebody who is trying to get revenge, or they're being targeted for another reason. There is no reason that this should happen to you, so don't worry about it. Terrorism, though scary, affects the absolute minority of people, and it can never be predicted, so there is no point in worrying about it, at all.

I would suggest that you get help for your mental health. Staying at home all the time is much more likely to cause you harm in the long term than getting out and about and living your life.

If I was at school, highly likely because I am very short for an average 18 year old, but I left at 17 due to personal reasons and also due to the fear of getting out of my house. I also normally get bullied at school a lot when I didn’t do anything wrong. I am not at school though so unlikely.

IAPT services in different mental health trusts often have online CBT for people who are unable to leave their house for whatever reason.

If you want to try getting out of the house more, could you start by going out on small visits to places close by to your home e.g. local shop. Maybe go with someone and slowly build up the amount of distance you go, and then maybe go out without someone. Kind of like a DIY exposure therapy. However, it may also be worth seeing if you can get online CBT from the NHS - you can often self refer online.

Things are happening near my house so I am still scared of going to the local shop, and I don’t go out because I choose to but when I do (rare) I always go with someone, and tomorrow I am going to the Mile End park with my siblings and my mum so I guess that’s doing something. And going to the job centre with my dad is also forcing me to go out, but even then still terrified.

That's just insensitive. People have had experience from their past like this and can actually help him / her. And yeah sure they can just stay at home but they won't have a home for long if they dont leave the house because no job.

Honestly we're all going to die anyway. You might die tomorrow in your sleep. You may as well live life to the fullest.
