Put a positive spin on it somehow. Was your hubby going to take the kids anyhow even if you don't go? Six year olds can be bribed into doing something else they like to do, something that you can attend that is not so stressful..............a movie, the beach or park, picnics, so try to think of a substitute with a promise to try to do the other at a different date.
Please do not feel guilty as I had many times for months where just leaving the house caused me severe anxiety thinking about it. My husband had to drive me anywhere and I would be in high anxiety until we were back on the road home.
Gentle Hugs to you. Keep posting.
i agree with Kitt, dont feel guilty because you cant do things, Ive been agoraphobic for nearly 12 months, and actually missed my daughters first day of primary school, and the school is just in the next street. Even though you do feel bad, just remember its not your fault, and things WILL get better with time.
I myself am just managing to go out the front of my house and go for short walks. It takes time, but well worth the wait...
Hope things get better for you soon..
A slip of the foot you may soon recover,
but a slip of the tongue you may never get over.
