Please help

I cannot stand this any longer. I cannot go outside even to the garbage can without having an attack. I take xanax 4 times a day but to no avail. Please I even make Dr apps and cancel them. I start worring about it the min I wake. Also I sleep 10-14hrs a day. This has been going on for over a year. I take med for depression and they don't work. When I do get out I can't wait to get home. I hate this.

I understand how you feel. I think many of us suffer with the same things. I’m probably not equipped enough to give you much helpful advice. I’m learning myself. This is a great forum and there is lots of support here. Just continue reaching out for help. I’m sure we will all eventually find our way. Good luck to you.


Hi. I would suggest to really push yourself to go to the doctors and tell them your medication isn't helping, don't worry they really do care for their patients because they wouldn't become doctors if they didn't care. I think that you could try and think about what caused you to first feel like this and try and emotionally comprehend it since medicines are only 50% of the solution. Also, just start doing small things like going for a 5 minute walk or going to buy some food to slowly build your confidence in day to day life. I also think a good distraction from your thoughts is to treat yourself to things you like such as food, food always helps ;) I'm not qualified but I hope this helps. I hope you feel better :)


Thank you for all the encouragement just reading it does help I fight constantly to get by everyday
