I have real bad anxiety but afraid to go anywhere and scared to see a dr. What do you think I could do to not be so scared so I can see a dr?

In brief: As for referral
Try to see a doctor that someone that you know has already seen.
Ask them how there experience was, this way it will reduce your anticipatory anxiety about seeing him.

In brief: Self help
You could always start with self help books on managing anxiety.
It could improve your anxiety enough to get you into see a therapist.
