Agoraphobic

Hi everyone, my name is Rosemarie and I have been suffering with agoraphobia with panic disorder since I was 23 I am now 51. I have been living in a box all these years. Afraid of trains,busses, highways ,planes and elevators.

Last year I finally started to go on the highway a few exits to my son's house. I was so proud of myself. I was going every weekend​. But then I hadn't gone in like a month, so I decided to go again and boom , here came the panic attack. I was so disappointed in myself.

  • Hello

    Yes well done for doing all that you have despite the anxiety !

    I understand where you are coming from and when we have agoraphobia it does not take much for us to fall back in the old habits and stay in again and the reason why everyday it can be therapeutic to make sure we take small trips out which from your post you know that now and what happens when we don't but please you should not be disappointed but instead feel really proud of yourself :-)

    Take Care x
