Anxiety and Depression Support

Hi Everyone!

Hello anxiety and depression community. My name is Remi, I struggle with anxiety and panic disorder and now am agoraphobic. After being like this for 3 years not being able to leave my home alone without a safe/ comfort person I am now ready to heal and won’t stop till I find my cure. I’m currently working with a wonderful therapist who practices EFT which stands for emotional freedom technique. The last thing I wanted in this journey was to be alone, but mental health being so taboo made me want to crawl in a hole. But now I no longer care and want to win this battle I’ve been faced with. If anyone is going through the same experience write me and we can get through this together. WE ARE NOT ALONE.

In 2010, I was diagnosed with panic disorder and agoraphobia. I refused meds as I have major anxiety over taking medications. I couldn’t leave my room to use the bathroom without sheer panic. Day by day I made myself sit in the bathroom longer than needed, slowly making my way to my kids room, hallway, kitchen and living room. I graduated to sitting on the porch to walking to the side walk to eventually driving. It will be scary to step out of what makes you comfortable but I use to tell myself what’s the worse that can happen? “ I’ll have a panic attack for which I already have just sitting locked up in my room but I have meds that work fast in case it gets too bad.” That helped me. I suggest trying something, think worse case scenario and how you would resolve it. I hope you find techniques that will help you. It can get better.
