why am i so afraid to go outside my house, answer my phone, check my messages, etc....I cant seem to focus on my work anymore, I feel like I'm doing a poor job at it, thank God I'm self employed, or I probably wouldnt even have a job anymore!!!! I use to be able to handle all the stress of owning my business, being a mother of 4, and life in general like it was nothing. Now everything seems to stress me out, and give me panic attacks... I just want to run away from it all sometimes..... My husband doesn't really understand it, things just tend to roll off of him, he doesnt seem to carry stress it seems like its all on me......and everything bothers me me so much I cant even sleep anymore!!! ??? lately i've been wanting to isolate myself from the world and I dont know why!! What is wrong with me???

It sounds like you are isolating due to depression, anxiety agoraphobia any number of fun things like that

Welcome to the forum..I am up sick tonite and just wanted to say hi..you are not alone here..I am a big time isolator myself

Will come back after a little sleep and talk more, ok?

Take care

I answered your post on another thread. Try not to duplicate posts as that isnt' allowed. It does truly sound like depression. I highly recommend couseling or talkin gto your doc about it.

I hope that things get better soon.

Hi and welcome. I'm new also so I hope you get this message. I understand what your going thru. I used to handle life great but then everthing seemed to change first depression then aniexty. I'm on meds now which helps a little but my motivation is gone. This seems like a good place to vent if I can learn my way around.

You will learn your way around Tom. It just takes a little getting use to. You can also subscribe to a thread which emails you where there is a reply. That way you know that somebody has replied to your post. I come here on a daily basis so I don't do tht anymore.

I am glad thta you are on meds. But sorry about your motivation gone. I take adderall which gives me energy to get through the day. But I have fibromyalgia which makes me fatigued.

Keep posting Tom. I answered you on your other thread too.

Hugs, Karen

Hey lonely

I came back to say hi and welcome..I could really relate to your post...I have always enjoyed my "alone "time but had plenty of social interaction...now the thought of socializing throws me into a tizz!!

Are you on any meds or seeing a counselor? They have great meds now for anxiety AND depression. As to why you are becoming this way, I have not a clue. I always overcame some big obstacles thru a combo of faith, stubbornness, sheer willpower...since Katrina, I have been fighting and losing the battle. Up and down, changing meds and therapists, hospitalization, family burnt out on my problerms, me too!!!

I'm glad you found us...this is a great place to find support...you can always come here and vent and we won't think you are being a "drama queen"-lol.

Take care=let us know

Maggie

Hi Lonelyandhurt,

Welcome to the site.

I am new to this forum also and just the few days I've been on I can already tell the differance ( having someone out there that understands what were going through helps tremendousely)

I can very much relate to you. I have recently quit a very well paying job due to the fact that i simply cant face people right now. It takes sooo much energy just to get to the store to buy the basic items. I have been on paxil since 1997 for panic attacks, it has helped w/panic but not just generalized anxiety but stayed on paxil due to the fact that so happy i dont have panic attacks anymore. Didn't want to mess that up!

Past year I think all this anxiety has built up in me that i now have all the signs of a major depression. I will get to the Dr. when i get money for an office visit as i have no insurance.

I have absoletly no energy! yesterday i wrote my to do list for the day: wash dishes. I couldn't even finish that!

Hang in there we are not alone:)

Noanswers,

Sometimes a short walk gives me a little energy. We have snow here now so it is harder to do. But if you can get in a five minute brisk walk (or slow) outside, it might give you a little energy.

I hope that you feel better soon.

Hugs, Karen
