Being alone

Does anybody ever experience anxiety and like dizzy spells when they are home alone that’s when I get most of my anxiety. If anybody has any tips or tricks on how to deal with it would be greatly appreciated. I find myself leaving my house for the whole day while my boyfriend is at work because I feel like I am going to pass out and start panicking when I am alone.

Practice mindfulness, take deep breaths and drink some water. I would look into researching mindfulness and how it can positively affect our lives.

Yes I do. Really hard sometimes. When I’m getting panicked I YouTube, or text a friend. Something to distract. The best would be to face the fear, I am 39 and just starting to make myself stay in the fear and work through the anxiety. It’s hard

I don’t know why but for some reason taking medication for it seems really scary to me
