I am trying to fight this agoraphobia thing head on and I am combining it with things I used to enjoy - I went walking today with my dog and brother, and sat on a bench outside waiting for my brother to come back from the grocery store. I am not in shape at the moment, I also have adrenal fatigue, and yesterday was a pretty busy day (physically anyway) for me, so today I was supposed to rest, but before I fell ill I could do a walk like today VERY easily and I have not realized I overdid it because I am no longer like I used to be. So, in the middle of the trip to the grocery store, I felt bad - legs felt weak, my derealization was so bad I started mixing up words (I said laptop instead of labrador and dress instead of jacket) - I literally thought I was having a stroke or something!! And then I remembered, in shock - I have forgotten to take my benzo completely... all the people around me and my muscle weakness and fear of fainting took its toll and I practically ran back home as soon as we were done. And now it's just another one of those bad exposure times - what to do now? Each time this happens, my fear only gets worse...
