I'm 22 and feel like the biggest loser on earth.

I still live with my parents, I don't have 1 friend online or irl, never been in a real relationship, can't drive, don't have a job. I live in a rural area so not being able to drive is horrible. I just stay in my room and try to ignore all my problems by listening to music, playing Sims, or watching Netflix. When I go to take my driving test I start crying and freaking out which obviously makes me fail. Without a license I can't work, I can't go anywhere, I have no life.But even if I could drive I can't even imagine having a job, a social life, a relationship. I know my parents are so disappointed in me.

I have social anxiety and health anxiety. My entire life since I was 14 or 15 has been ruined by this. It has just been getting worse as time goes on. Depression has started in the last year or so. I can't even talk to people online. I go days and days without talking to anyone. I've tried different meds but they did not go well with me. One made me have panic attacks worse than ever before. I cry going to the doctor, freak out going to a store, can't go anywhere without my parents.

Well that's the sad reality of my life.

Hello, welcome. You are still young, plenty of time to catch up with all those things.

Have you tried therapy with a psychologist who specializes in social anxiety and cognitive behavioral therapy? Some of them offer therapy at home, which can help a lot.

You're not alone. Take it a step at a time. First is first. Find a therapist. Get some medication. Get a job. Ask your family if they can give you ride. Your therapist will help you with all this and guide you towards your goal. Don't worry you're young. You're just starting. Hang in there.
