Alone, I really need help to prevent panic attacks

I'm 18 and for a long time I have panic attacks at night time,
It first started a long time ago i remember being sick and felt terrible, fell asleep and woke up and I guess forgot and freaked out and had a really bad panic attack in the middle of the night.
And now I have really bad emotional problems with loneliness to the point where thinking about moving out and living alone scares me more then anything
So when i sleep over with my best friends house I'm really happy and when I go home to terrible emotional abuse in have a panic attack especially at night and I really need help to prevent that with out just not going to my friends house
I can't give up going it's really the only thing I have that I truly enjoy but the panic attacks i think i can get some kind of help
If you have the same problem and have tips please I really need help !
Thank you so much

Hello and welcome to EHF !

I went through your query and i believe it is separation anxiety and is very common. It is easily manageable. Few anxiety medications and few sessions of psychotherapy will help you get through it. Don't worry about it.

Take care
