Here's another success from tonight - at least a partial success:
Today has been a day that I have needed an extra valium because I have been so stressed out. My husband had to actually keep me out of the kitchen for a couple of hours so that I could calm down because I was so close to a panic attack. I was worried all day about
going out to my son's for dinner and worked myself up pretty bad. I cannot get over how much this flippin Agoraphobia has taken over my life and how different things are for me now versus a year ago. After talking with my husband, calling my dad and coloring for a while, I was able to finish what I needed to do and go to my son's new apartment.
I was nervous, to say the least, but I was able to stay there for about
2.5 hours before I couldn't take it any more and needed to leave. My son was so understanding, as was my husband. They just amaze me sometimes. The other two kids stayed there while my husband brought me home - my son only lives about
5 minutes from me. I was able to eat dinner, sit and talk for a while, and even played a couple of video games with my son. So I guess it would be considered a partial success - I couldn't get through the day without panicking and couldn't stay until everyone else was ready to leave, but I stayed for a while.
Kitt, my daughter actually told me that she had a blast making the pillows and blankets today. She really surprised me when she said that.
