hi im kind of new to this whole forum thing but i really need help. im 18 and a freshman at college and im starting to develop anxiety attacks. About two years ago my best friend died and i have been facing major depression ever since. Eventhough i feel i have gotten over her death, the depression still continues. I have seen a therapist and have felt that it didnt work. Most times i like to be by myself, i have gone to the extreme of locking my door and pretending I am not there so no one will bother me. My depression comes in waves sometimes is really bad and other times its just mild. But as far the anxiety i get really anxious doing normal things. For example i live on campus and go home on weekends, but when i'm home i get real anxious when i think i have to go back to school. My heart starts to race, i get jumpy, and began to feel that I am traped. Some times my anxiety can cause me to verbally lash out on others around me. I want to know what can i do to fix this and if this serious to the point where i would need to seek medical help. if anyone has any answers it would be greatly appreciated.
