Going home for a bit while you work at getting back on your feet might be a good idea, provided your home is a place that will help you recover from your anxiety. It would be better to do this now rather than wait for ten years when life is more complicated.

Progress is hard to make, especially if you don't know what to do or where to go. Self-help books aren't necessarily a perfect solution either, although they can be helpful. Doctors and medication are only a piece of the pie.

For me, regular exercise, talking to a counselor (VERY HELPFUL), eating an anxiety-reducing diet, taking risks to break out of my anxiety, and talking to friends or my counselor when I was down was a successful formula. Basically, you have to challenge yourself to live a new way of life. Out of the previous methods mentioned, if I had to pick one I would pick out counseling because a counselor can help you understand what you need to do in order to reduce your anxiety.

There is relief; it is hard to find, but there is relief. Good luck and be sure to ask questions if you have some.
