As Percy put it, you are no longer taking babysteps, but HUGE strides forward. Please keep us posted about how you are going. You are an inspiration and a valued HW member, P.S. I'm still waiting on that manicure!!!!!
Keep it up sugar and I agree you are making some huge gains on your problems.
I had a step mother too so I can identify with that. I had to have fillings in my teeth without novacaine as my stepmom did not want to spend the extra money. To this day the dentist freaks me out. She also made me go to the dentist alone as I could walk there, I was 8 years old.
But that is the past kiddo and we are now walking down the road to a future full of happiness and learning to love ourselves.

Hey there, we are all here for you and was hoping to make your thread run smoother by combining them as when members look back sometimes threads they are looking for get buried on back pages.
I hope you post soon. You know your friends are all here for you.
Hurrah for you, what a great accomplishment..............you get a huge gold star. You did take control of your life and chased the anxiety and fear to the curb, now it can be picked up by garbage man.
I am so happy for you and we are all glad to hear the good news.
Keep it up hun, we are on your side.
I've grit my Teeth,felt the fear and did it anyway.I deciced that no matter where I am,or how I'm feeling am gonna continue facing my fears and keep Fingers crossed that it gets easier as time goes on.
I sat on my Loveseat and carried conversation with my Uncle,but have been going outdoors more lately than I have the past 2 Years.
Yes my Step-Mother's attitude did affect me,however so did my late Father and Grandmother's.Trying to protect me harmed me.
I focus Health Anxiety not only on myself,but my Cat's and loved ones as well.My Sister Friend's Health scares the HELL outta me!I will probably be really bad to take my Child/Children to Doctor with every Sneeze,sniffle etc.
Also fear I will live at Doctor whilst Pregnant due to my Biological Mother's difficulties during her Pregnancy with me.Someway somehow I got to get a grip.
Thank you so very much for all your encouragement.Sometimes encouragement goes a long way
Not boasting,but I HAVE made VERY HUGE strides forward.It is so unbelieveable!I never thought about stepping out my front door ever again.Thank you for your kindness.I never thought myself an inspiration.That makes me feel good.Bless you!
P.S. I am SOOO ready for a Pedicure!My Tootsies are SORE!In fact my entire Body is sore.I haven't walked this much in over 7 Years!
You have broken the cycle and ovecome your fears. You have shown real courage ! This is awesome and I hope you are celebrating your accomplishments.
You deserve to be recognized for the progress you have made in such a short time. Kudos to you kiddo.
