A little background (sorry if it's all mixed up, just wrote it as I though of course It all.)

I feel like I have being suffering in silence for a very long time, since I was 13 i'm 32 soon.
I live with my parents and don't see it changing.

I missed 3 years of school due to hospitals. and so don't have any real friends .

I find it very hard to trust new people, normally takes 6 months + for me to learn to trust them.
I can post or email online as long as it's semi anomonous.

I feel like everyone is always laughing at me for me for no reason.

Going to social events terrifics me so I never go out.

I'm not really allowed any freedom to go anywhere. I can't drive (due to medical reason ) and live in a rural location, and never had a girlfriend :(

My mood can be up and down every quickly, anything can trigger it. Today for a example it was someone whistling and humming (I had to go off to a room on my own to come back to 'normal' if it exists?

I really don't know where to go from here.

I really know I need to see my doctor but unsure how to bring it up as I'm a very private person.

I just don't know when the last time I was happy.

My parents are treating me very well.

I missed the 3 years of school due to spinal operations.

My not being able to go anywhere is due to my parents trying to control me. Compared to my sister who has being to 3 different country's already this year and going to the states later this year. She's 12 years younger and has all the freedom in the world. The farest iv the being is a town 20 miles away this year with my only friend.

I know I need to go and see my doctor it's just I'm not sure how to start the dialogue. Even when I book the app they ask why, and I don't really what to tell the receptionist (make a white lie)

Hi Becki,

I'm sorry to hear that you are having a hard time. Write down your concerns and take them to your GP, having them written down will make it easier to keep your train of thought. I used to have problems with social anxiety and I found a book called "Dare to Connect" by Susan Jeffers really helpful.

As for the receptionist, tell them its a confidential matter between you and your doctor. They have no need to know what it is. I can relate to parents being over protective as mine can be too. I moved a long way from home at 18 as I felt it was the only way to get my independance, I do miss them though and now I'm older I feel it would be nice to live closer, wouldn't want to live in the same house again though.
