I guess a movie is a dark, enclosed area, I can certainly see why that might give you some anxiety. But when anxiety interferes with our ability to enjoy life, it's, well sucky! Have you ever had this experience before? An irrational fear? I would tell anxiety to go jump and decide YOU ARE going. No matter what. Anxiety will probably have a go at you, but keep repeating that this is an irrational thought..you are the one in power. I hope you enjoy the movie. (even if you have to freak a little)...
** BTW I have used the CD as my out a couple of times too but me thinks Cait knew lol**
I have had the very same thing happen. I have agreed to go to the movie and then backed out at last minute as the anxiety kicked in and I could not leave my safe zone.
Don't beat yourself up. When your up to it, you will go to a movie. For now just be in the moment and if the moment is staying home from the movies..........it is OK. I promise.
Gentle Hugs dear friend,Kitt

How are you going? Have you bought those tickets yet or is anxiety still whispering nasty things?? I hope you are doing well sweetie. Fight!
