i have read on here where some people never get better and end up house bound and living in fear forever .now im scared even worse i was told by md this cant and wont happen but i see here it does and might.
My first pyschiatrist told me at 14 that i would be an 'emotional cripple' who would most likely be house bound and 'never contribute to society in a meaningful manner.' and for 3 months after that, i was housebound. my agoraphobia was awful. I chose to prove this jerk of a man wrong. I got the right meds and a NEW pyschiatrist, went to therapy and moved out of home at 18, went to university, did nursing, then went back to uni and did high school teaching. I have a double degree. I have nursed in Oncology for 5 years, and now am a high school teacher. I am independant. I refuse to let this illness take my basic right to freedom away. At 14, i thought i was going to be trapped in my house for EVER. it doesnt have to be that way and you will get through feeling like this.
