Hello,I am struggling to get the help I need,I have depression,suffer panic attacks and have agoraphobia,I cant get out the house at all,I had a woman from my local community mental health team come round for 2 weeks to tell me she is retiring,so I couldn't continue as I felt I couldn't build a bond with her and do much before she did (this was fairly recent) I have tried finding local help but nothing (I was willing to pay) I have spoke to my doctor but he said to go to my local steps to change,I cant go out,I need the support to get out to get more help,I also have been told by my doctor I need to have my phobias diagnosed,I have suffered my problems for 10 years and not once has anyone tried to diagnose me,I have had appointments many years ago with the psychologist,but I only saw him ever 3 months and he only asked if I was sleeping,I feel I don't know what to do,I also have severe anxiety so bad I cant take medication
