Hi I am completly new here, have no idea where 2 turn to.  So alone, so empty.  I suffer from severe anxiety, but due to nearly over dosing (not deliberatly) I am too scared to take medication to help me.
I spent the past 6 years in a very violent relationship, and finally plucked up the courage to leave.  I met the most wonderful man, and could not have been happier.  My problem is he has been sent to jail for a long time, and it for something he definatly has not done, and the worst thing is, the guy that did the crime, openly admits to doing it, but he too scared of going to jail to help appeal the case.  It was obvious the jury (after deliberating for 22 hours) was just tired and had enough. 
Ontop of things, our house has been sold and I have until the end of the week to leave but have no money, I dont work (and with the state I am in, dont think I would be capapble at this stage)
My fiancee is my rock, i am so lost without him.  dont know who or where to turn to.  my anxiety through the roof, I cant eat or sleep.  Can someone please offer any advice?

hi bella82, my name is jamie, welcome to the forum. my direct advice would be to contact social services in your area for assistance. some counselling would be of benefit to you as well. having a chat with your doctor is strongly recommended, good to make sure of your mental health is not esculating and a check on your physical would be good as well, strange things can happen to our bodies in tough times. stay safe. jamie.
ps. i am sure you will be notified regarding the rules pertaining to communicating about self-harm and that young people do post here as well.

Good Morning and welcome to HealingWell and the Depression Forum.  You have stated that you have anxiety and I was wondering if you knew we have a great forum for members with Anxiety Disorders.
Here is the link to the Anxiety and Panic Forum:
I am sorry you are going through a tough time and I would like to suggest that you see  your physician for a medical screening exam to rule out any medical problems.  Also you may want to look into therapy for yourself.
Again a warm welcome to you.

Hi Bella. You and your fiance can continue yjour relationship. Nothing has changed. I know its easier said than done, but you need to be strong. Maybe you can contact family or like stated above social services. The city or county you live would be a good place to start for help. Best of luck to you. Prayers to you right now.
