I not only fear having Anxiety or Panic Attack whilst out.I also fear becoming sick or dying..never heard of a Health Anxious Person having Agoraphobia with HA..

I too have the fear of going out and getting sick. It's so bad that I usually avoid going on vacations and dates with my husband. I'm sorry to hear you feel this way. You are strong though. You will get through this. I believe in you!

Sydnee,

Health anxiety and agrophobia come under the same (miserable!) umbrella, trust me you are not alone in feeling this. I have managed to combine OCD, anxiety and claustrophobia (bit like a club sandwich of no fun).....

Please feel free to share how you are feeling around all of this, and please, do not feel like you are alone.

We fight this together okay?x

Thirsty,

I fear going ANYWHERE..am trying to remember anything that can happen outside can happen inside my Home..When I say sick,it's not just a Nauseated/gonna puke sick,but a struck down with a major illness sick..sometimes I feel so bad (sick) that I don't think I can go any longer..thank you for believing in me coz I have hard time believing in myself..I greatly distrust my Body..

Nervymeg,
So there are a lot of People who have HA that also have Agoraphobia?How on Earth do they get to the Doctor?It must be a living h*ll!It sure is for me!
I am feeling very scared.A feeling that I don't have any control over my Body/life and that I fight with a "force" to have control so nothing bad will happen to me.

Sydnee,

Can you get a doctor to visit you? Or a trusted friend to drive you, mindful that you are REALLY anxious????? I am so sorry that you feel trapped, that is awful, just remember how far you have come. We all support you brave woman!

There is a member Ken who has not been on in some time but I will IM him he has not or was not able to get out of his house nor see a doc for over 2 yrs
