hi all, a year ago I lost my children (2 boys 6 and 18 months) to the local authority because I had agoraphobia (and other problems so don't worry that you will lose your children if you are single and agoraphobic).
A year on and this is my story! I am getting my boys back on 6th August!!!!
I fought my way through my agoraphobia for the sake of my children. I still have a way to go in calming the anxiety while I am out but once upon a time I was totally housebound, I couldn't get across the road to the post office without the help and support of this site... It has been such a battle but when people here have told me not to give up I eventually started to believe them and started fighting it.
I met a decent man (Nick) in January this year and he has helped me so much after I had given up all hope of ever seeing my children again.
 
I would just like to say to everyone who is agoraphobic, keep fighting it, do it one step at a time, push yourself to your limits daily.
I truely hope that everyone recovers from this as I am.
Love to all
Chuckle

That was very inspiring Chuckle, and I am happy things are looking up for you. I am sorry you had to go through losing your kids, I can't even imagine how that felt. At any rate, you are getting them back, so cherish every moment with them, and move forward from here.

Thanks for the inspiration!!!

I am NOT weak, I am just down right now.  I am doing what it takes to get my life back!!!
 
Best Wishes to all...Tammy

Chuckle,

Hello, I am Kitt. I am so happy that you kept on fighting for yourself and that HW support helped you.  You however have done the hard part and that is awesome. Give yourself a hug from all of us.

Keep on taking those steps and I rejoice that your children are coming back in August.

Congratulations on your success.

Kitt

always to hear of sufferers making progress, but I prefer floating thru the anxiety rather than fighting back

floating can be learned thru any self help book or recovery program, the method is called CBT

fighting back keeps you in constant tension and is exhausting

Thank you all for your replies, it's nice to know that there are people out there who care!
 
Harry, good point you made there but perhaps I used the wrong words. I don't mean fight 'it' when you fear the symptoms of the anxiety I actually meant keep fighting 'it' don't let 'it' win! Sorry I do apologise

Hi Chuckle,

I'm so glad to hear you are doing so well. I'm sure your experience will be an inspiration to other sufferers. I can certainly relate to many of the things you've been through. (((Hugs))),

Thank you very much skitt...
Not sure why you think I'm a 'deserving' person, you ought to go ask people on another site if they feel the same..their answer would be so different but do I care? No because I am the better person for walking away!!!! yeah

Chuckle,

I don't have to ask another site about you my  friend as I have been on a site that once shunned me and I learned through therapy that it is how I feel about me that counts not how others judge me.

Take care and gentle hugs.

Kitt
