I tend too shove on a load of makeup, and a baseball cap, and force myself to leave the house. I also have too check absolutely everything at least 3 times, which tires me out before I even go. The amount of times, I've got downstairs, then had too run back up too triple check that the door is locked.
Even now I'm going out almost every day, it's still scaring me senseless, only now I have commitments and have to go.
I also will only go too places I know are going too be easy. Anywhere else like paying bills, is a nightmare, and paul still has too do that.
I have also got into taking my crutches if I'm going too be on my own, just too make me feel safer and more at ease. That way, I don' get a confrontation with the driver and everyone else on the bus, and also there's no chance of getting embarrased by falling over.
Little things I guess, just too settle my mind a bit. Less motivation though, more just forcing myself into doing stuff.
Another thing, is keeping a diary of what I've done. Even if it's-I dunno 'i went to the shop today' just too record that nothing bad happened, and so I can look back now, at how little I uesd to do copared too now. It makes me want to do more then.
