You aren’t alone, there are others on this site with agoraphobia too and some have been housebound as well.
I was agoraphobic for fourteen years. Didn’t leave the house from age sixteen till I was thirty. It wasn’t easy to overcome, but sometimes I wish I tried harder when I was younger. I am forty this year and am behind the eight ball as it comes to a job or any way of becoming self sufficient. My advice to you is don’t give up! Please learn from my mistakes. You don’t want to be in the situation I am in.
I just want to say how much I agree with this lost most my 20s now I'm in my early 30s but I almost let it happen again! Well done you some people will never understand the strength it takes! I am the same in job terms and being self sufficient losing that many years but each year gets a little closer hope it does for you too!
OP you can break through it and it takes some strength just start out really small just standing outside is enough of a start when I was really bad I got some good advice one was to ground myself by standing in the garden in my bare feet I thought it odd advice but it actually helped! You can beat this don't lose anymore of your 20s xxxxxx
We are all here for each other!!!
I still get out some but nothing like I did
I used to be the social butterfly so I understand somewhat and yes it’s lonely I tried to keep your mind occupied find something you’re good at ...drawling , coloring, crafts, cropping pics, helping others on this site, write to encourage young prisoners ...whatever !!
🌹you’re a piece of this world ..out which piece you are🌹
Hi. I'm sure you know that you have a psychological problem. I would suggest you find one of the sites you can talk to a therapist on the phone. Maybe you can get some help that way. Also I think a cardiologist would be of benefit. I do not want to give up. You have a good reason for being here . Take care. Your friend
