I'm 27 and live with my parents
I'm 27 and live with my parents

I feel I’m at rock bottom. I’m a 27-year-old man with little money and few prospects.

I’ve only ever had poorly paid shop or cleaning jobs.

I still live at home with my parents. They are good people who I know love me but they’re older and just wouldn’t understand.

I’ve always suffered anxiety. Lately though it’s becoming more and more of a problem because I’m afraid to seek help.

I get told I’m quite an attractive lad but don’t feel it and haven’t had a girlfriend for 10 years.

I clam up and start shaking at the thought of talking to a girl or trying to get a better job.

I see friends with good jobs, getting married and having kids and then I look at myself living in my parents’ spare room and I can’t bear to talk to them in case they ask how I’m doing in life.

I’m not sleeping either, which means I’m always tired and unable to concentrate. I’ve self-medicated with alcohol but know it just makes things worse in the long run.
