Welcome to the A/P forum. You are not alone here, there are many wonderful people that do understand your situation.
Are you comfortable with your doctor? I just wondered because you might need to seek out a different one if they are not addressing your concerns. Also do you go to therapy? It really does help to have somebody to talk to about this. You need to be able to live your life comfortably.
How hard is it for you to leave the safety of your home? Do you have any techniques that you practice before you try to go out? I know that this is a difficult situation, but I feel that you will get a lot of responses here that will be helpful to you. If you are getting out to see your doctor, you are overcoming a lot. How do you feel about phone conversations, I get to where I don't even answer the phone. But coming here is easy for me and I have had so much help on the forums. So you have come to a good place.
I know that it is hard when the doctor just gives you pills and sends you on your way without even talking about your issues. Maybe you should write a list of the things that you would like to discuss. It does take a little of their time to address your issues, but that is what you pay them for.
Keep posting, I am sure you will find help here. This is a wonderful group of very caring people. We are also open to any suggestions that you might have.
Relax and enjoy your day.
Luv and hugs, Karen
