Looking to make friends with the same illness as me. I do have friends and family but they don’t really understand what I’m going through because they don’t have the same illness as me.
My husband works full time and my sons at school everyday.
So most of the time it’s just me on my own who sits in day and night.
I feel too anxious to go out on my own.
I find it so hard just to walk the dog around the block, my husband always offers to take me out but the places he chooses to go are the places I find the most hardest like cinemas or restaurants.
I always come over hot and panicky on buses and trains and people look at me because I start to shake and cry. It would just be nice to go out with someone who knows exactly how I feel and what to do.
When I’ve been out with other friends and I’ve come over anxious they just say pull yourself together or we’ve come all the way now, were not going back.
So therefore I don’t want to go out with someone that makes me feel worse.
It’s hard to find someone to come to the doctors with me because I get too panicky to go on my own.
It feels like it’s never going to end. These panic attacks and anxiety and depression. I just wish I had some more support. I hate facing each day. When I come over anxious at night is bad cos every one is in bed – no one I can phone for a chat! L
It's very hard to deal with anxiety alone when others don't seem to understand what I’m feeling!
