I have a "bubble" of activies that I can do without having much anxiety or fear of being overwhelmed by a panic attack. If I stay within my bubble for an extended period of time I almost forget that I suffer from anxiety and panic attacks. I feel a boldness come over me and think that I am back to my old resiliant self.
I then think that I can do something that is outside of my bubble. An example being, taking a job that is some distance from where I live. Suddenly all of those horrible feelings of anxiety begin to emerge. I feel that when I do things that are outside of my bubble that I run into some kind of brick wall. It is like a switch is pressed and I become that very anxious person.
I would welcome any thoughts that you may have on what I can do to move forward.
Very best wishes
