Well, I made the subject baby steps...because, I WENT TO WENDYS TODAY!  My bf wanted a frosty and asked me if I wanted to go with him to get it.  He knows I always say no,but he still asks...anyway, I said YES.  cool    He didnt' believe it, and truthfully, neither did I.  But, I said yes, and I was on my way.
 
FOR ANYONE WHO DOESN"T GET WHY THIS IS SO HUGE, I have been dealing with agoraphobia for about 2 months now...give or take.
 
Anyway, I was nervous going out the driveway, and Wendys is about 5 minutes away.  Yes, I felt nervous, but I DID IT!  It felt so amazing, I wanted to cry, and maybe I did cry!  It felt so wonderful to get out.  I know it was somewhere close, but that is why I said BABY STEPS.
 
So, I just wanted to cheer for myself!!!  And, my first instinct was to get on here and tell you all about it!!! yeah GO ME GO ME GO ME!
 
Thanks for listening guys!

CONGRATULATIONS TAMMY!!!
 
I can feel your happiness as I read your post and I have to say I teared up a bit.  I felt the same excitment the first time I got out.   Baby steps is the way to go because it is not so overwhelming.  The first time I got out was to a park 5 minutes from my house with my Husband.  It felt so good!
 
Things will continue to improve for you.  You should be very proud of yourself.
 
I'AM SO HAPPY FOR YOU!  YOU GO GIRL!!!!
 
Big Hugs,
Mary

Thank you EVERYONE for the support! Yesterday was GREAT for me.

For some reason, today I am a little achy, more so than normal. I just got up, and yea, I feel tight. I am stretching some, and I took some Aleve. Lets hope that feeling passes. Maybe too much excitement yesterday! Ha ha ha.

My son was with his Dad yesterday, so he wasn't home. Today, when he comes home, I am going to sit outside with him. We will see how that goes!

I haven't had a panic attack since yesterday morning...knock on wood. I had 2 mini ones yesterday morning, and nothing since then! That is great!

I have been reading these posts and some books on panic and anxiety, and it is truly helping. I am far from there yet, but, like I said, BABY STEPS.


Thanks again to all of you who care so much! You guys are the best!

Tammy

I like baby steps! They are more safe, ya know? And like you said Lyn, you won't fall back so far. That is true. I just wish I didn't feel so crappy today. That sucks. But I am still excited about yesterday! It felt so good to get out!!!

Hey, does anyone here ever chat? I am not familiar with any kind of chat schedule. I went into that chat room once, but it was empty, aside from like 2 people. Just curious if any of the regulars ever chat????
