I had a very bad year last year. My Mum died in March, my Dad in October and I lost my job!! This stress has manifested itself into a name phobia where I have to know names of people I see in and around town. I live in quite a small place so see lots of people, consequently, I am anxious when I go into town in case I see someone and can't remember thier name. I am currently having CBT and my psychologist is good. But, I feel I have come to a standstill as I can't seem to get any better and these names, or lack of them, make me feel very anxious. As a result I have become agrophobic and can't even go to the local supermarlet because of the people there. I do make myself go into town to try and face the fear but it is hard. I live a very long way from my family which is difficult .My husband, daughters and friends have been wonderfully supportive.Any advice would be very welcome to help me overcome this problem. Thanks
