This is something that you really need to talk to your doctor about
. It could just be anxiety, but it could be agorapphobia. Which can be dealt with. I probably spelled that wrong but that it just besides the point. But it is something that is so important for the doctor to know about
so that he can treat it. You might need more anxiety medications because of this. Or it might be something that counseling could help. Or even both.
I got that way for a long time, but it was more like I didn't care to go to the door. I didnt' want to see anybody, I didn't go anywhere, or answer the phone. I just slept. And I did it for two years. That is a lot of wasted time. But I found the right medications and now I am better. I don't go out as much as many, but I don't have the fear of going and I do go on occasion.
Bev, I do hope that you feel better soon. I hope that this fear goes away. You can over come it with help. If you can't get to the doctor, get a book. See what you have and learn how to treat it. The doctor is always the best route, but books can help you get there.
