Your symptoms are severe with significant impact on your life (Duration 3 month; locked myself away;people wanting to harm me; feeling depressed;brain is blank;mind goes dead; nervous and anxious).
Psychiatrist are mental health expert to help people like you. Most likely you are suffering from psychotic depression with fearfulness as major reason for your social isolation. If we prescribe something here, the psychotropic medicines will be displayed on such public place and can be used or abused by other peoples even not needing them exactly. What you need is to take the first step towards help by professional like us. You can involve your close relatives in your problem.

Dear Ben,

Three months is a significant period of social isolation. If you have a real threat to your life, it makes sense to avoid going anywhere near the people who might hurt you. But if that fear is preventing you from living a normal life, you have to deal with it.

Apart from the fear itself, you seem to have developed a reduced interest in socializing. You could indeed be suffering from clinical depression. I would suggest you find a doctor (preferably a mental health professional) and get the condition assessed and diagnosed. You might need a course of anti-depressants and anti-anxiety medicine. You might also benefit from psychotherapy. A combination of medication and psychotherapy works best.

Hope this helps. Best Regards.
