i haven't went anywhere's in 5 years i dont leave my house when i try i only get a little ways down my road like maybe 100 feet then my heart will start to pound and i have to run back to house to my room and sit till my heart will stop feeling like i'm having a heart attack i'm 26 i also get hot sweats and shaky dizzy sometimes and the feeling like nothing is real like it's a big dream i'm so scared of having a tumor or something or a stroke or heart attack when i went to the doctor to have it diagnose my heart got up to 193 and wouldn't settle down that was 2 years ago i'm always scared i just want to live again i tried med's all they did was make it worse and make me cry all night long.

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

Thank you

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
