First I'm a male 21 years old and live in Garden Grove California. I have anxiety, I haven't seen a doctor and been diagnosed but I've quite had a few panic attacks, also for about 2 or 3 months I couldn't leave the house. My dad has anxiety as well and although he kind of got it he didn't at the same time. I got an anxiety workbook which had a section on some other things including OCD and depression. In the check for depression I showed 7 of the 9 signs for it. I don't do good in social situations either it can be one on one, large groups, and public speaking. It's getting to the point where it is really affecting my everyday life. I can't go to job interviews or start college, I don't like attention from almost anyone. I read that only through prescription and/or therapy can help, is this true? Also if that is the route I have to go down I have a problem I'm unemployed, uninsured I don't live with either parent although both are too poor to help anyway. What are my options?
