Unfortunately not new to anxiety disorder, panic disorder as well as agoraphobia.
Five years now and counting...
I really could use some friends that really and truly understand how I feel.
I'm looking forward to meeting you all.

Welcome Dottie - you are in the right place for friendship, advice and general well being - I have had a/p for 7years, and since coming on here, everyone had given me the strength to contact my GP and get medication and support - I haven't had an attack for 3 weeks now - and I feel so much better. Best of luck and keep posting. xx
