Hello and again welcome to Healing Well.
First off, know that you are not alone!! I have suffered with agorophobia for a long time, I can't deal with malls either, or stores, or restaurants or anything LOL.... so I take an Ativan everyday to ease those side effects when I'm in those sort of places.
You went on a plane on New Years !? WOW, I'm jealous... hehe. I would probably have 50 panic attacks on a plane, so I don't even go on them anymore. I've tried, can't take it.
And by the way, you are NOT whining!!!
I whine all the time on here but it helps me to get through the hard times. We're all here to help you out!!! So talk all that you want.
I tried Zoloft when I was 15, had a bad reaction to it, quit meds for a long time but recently (4 months ago) couldn't tolerate the anxiety and panic I was feeling anymore, so I got on Lexapro.
I hope you have luck with it.
Keep us posted!!
