We can’t be there in person to help and support you in a moment of crisis, but there are other options available to you if you can’t turn to someone you trust. By giving us your postcode (or one nearby to where you are right now) we can let you know about services in your area. Remember: this moment will pass; you won’t always feel the way you do right now.
I have suffered with anxiety and depression for about 2 and a half years, my mum and dad know about it and I take medication and everything seemed to be under control. However I have recently started university and its seems to be getting worse. I cry a lot, have panic attacks, and I scratch and cut my skin with my nails. The other day was the worst I have ever done it. I have a boyfriend who is amazing at helping me cope but I feel so bad for him when he sees me like this and my mum and dad have no idea that I scratch myself. I don't want to tell them because I think they will stop me from coming back to university. I'm not sure what to do. I feel like two different people in one body; one who is the happy, chatty person and another who struggles to get out of bed somedays.
