I moved into a house share about one month ago with my boyfriend and two of my best friends, and honestly I thought living permanently with my partner of 9 month would be the hardest part for me to settle to, we lived together in dorms at uni but it’s a bit different to then having the same address, anyway back in March I started to get anxious about moving in and I kept getting reassured that I’d love it and it’ll be sunshine and rainbows and all that lovely stuff we all love.
But since moving in I can’t do it, the house has become a trigger to my panic attacks, they’re horrible I’m on a course of antidepressants but for now they’re so severe and scary for those who are around me when I have one.
I love coming home to my actual home and being here with my partner, it’s become a safe zone where it’s okay for me to be down and anxious and upset but going there just completely shuts me down, I’ve recently been diagnosed as severely depressed and anxious and I haven’t told them as of yet.
We were only going to stay until may of next year until a family member said to me well what could that do to your mental health?
Everyone I’ve spoken to have all told me to move back home just to pack up and leave, we’ve signed a contract and we have to tell them 2 month before but we don’t start rent until September after our first student loan payment.
I know this has been a lot to read and take on and I’m sorry it’s such an epic but I can’t stop playing scenarios over in my head. They have their own personal mental issues and I don’t want to hurt them but obviously not being honest will hurt them two.
I hope someone can help with just some advice also thank you if you read all that it means a lot ❤️
