thank you all for such a warm welcome.
I'm allready feeling so good about finding this wonderful site.
I have anxiety,panic disorder as well agoraphobia and are able to leave your home with a safe person.
Can anyone tell me how they cope eg:while shopping going for a walk ect...
I was doing not too bad while I was out of my safe place as long as I was not alone that is, but I hit rock bottom again with depression about a month ago and I feel like I am starting from day one all over again this time worse.
Two steps forward 20 steps back
life sucks big time these days.
They say exposure exposure exposure but it's so darn hard when your so full of fear to keep putting yourself somewhere where you feel like your going to die.
I don't leave my home alone,don't even go in my yard.I rarely check the mail if I'm home alone.
Can't walk my poor dogs,I feel like such a loser not to able to do such simple things in life.
How do you all cope with stuff?
I have been in 2 day treatment group sessions for cognivebehavior theraphy and once for one on one.
I see my shrink once every two weeks or a least once a month to deal with my anxiety,panic and depression and my gp for all the other wonderful phyical stuff that so lovingly comes alone with this disease.
But where to we get help for the agoraphobia?
OOOP! my god I am rambling on....
Well thats all my venting for looking forward to meeting all of you :)
One more ? do you have a weekly chat here?
