Hi, haven't post in here for a while, I need advice in what to do now, I've developed some kind of Chronophobia, and my anxiety issues are still damaging to me, although I might be better than before in the way of my feelings, I still feel troubled by all the thoughts and fears that I carry with me, I'm with a new therapist who seemed well the first five appointments, but the last appointment I felt like if he didn't care at all, and I also want to go back to my old psychiatrist because she seemed to know better about all of this stuff although she just didn't seems as interested with my case as before, but I just want to go back to her, because with my current psychiatrist I feel like if it's just routine, no insight to my actual problems, so please I need advice, because I don't even know how to tell about it to my parents, and they get a little angry when I ask them about this, I know the money they put on it, but if I don't feel ok, shouldn't I tell them? So please give me advice I beg you.

First, I understand that Chronophobia is misdiagnosed frequently. So be sure that who ever gave you that diagnosis, explains fully what their though process what/is.

Your parents anger, is most like from FEAR. I am sure they feel helpless in not being able to help you.

Here is a suggestion that may get you all together and supporting each other.

At you next therapy appointment. Ask your therapist for COPING SKILLS.

Coping skills are priceless in dealing with anxiety, negative thoughts, worthless ness.

Your parents can assist you in practicing them every day until they become part of your which is easier than you think.

Check out our resource page at the top of this thread, many helpful links.

Peace and strength

Do you have any books on anxiety. Techniques to combat it? I found books along with therapy really help. Do you have coping skills that you can use when you get anxious?

Maybe it is a little routine for the therapist, they are probably looking to see which way things will go with you. But can you talk to them about it? Tell them you don't feel like things are resolving? Do they know exactly how bad your anxiety is?

Have you talked to your therapist about talking to your parents? It sounds like you could use some support. I am glad that you posted here. I hope that things get better for you. Hang in there and only take it one day at a time. I have found mindfulness helps so much with anxiety.

Hugs, Karen...
