Hello, I'm new here and I decided to join because I need to talk to people who understand what I'm going through without having to worry the ones I love. About 2 months ago, I had two panic attacks (one happening 2 weeks after the other). I have found it hard to stay motivated every day since then. I struggle to find a reason to wake up and try something new or get back on my feet. Normally I would talk to my loved ones about this but I feel this is a safer space with more of a chance to get concrete answers.
(To give a bit of context, I live on a college campus away from my family and boyfriend and close friends so it makes it hard for me to talk to them about my problems. I know it worries them, and the distance is awful. I haven't seen them since September, a week after my last panic attack. Adding on to this, the counseling services at my college is terrible as there is a long waitlist and the closest appointment isn't for another 2 weeks)
Any and all tips are welcome. The idea of having Anxiety/Depression is very new for me and I don't feel comfortable sharing with people I'm not close to.
