    I wish I had some helpful advice to give you or something, but I'm in the same boat it seems. All I can think of is to hope for your relief and for things to get better for you. And remember that you're not alone, not really 💙

    Do you have agoraphobia (fear of leaving the house)? Do you want to try finding an online councilor so that you can get help without having to leave the house?

    @NB9 That's what I've been doing, all my therapy and almost all my medical appointments are virtual. I love it.

    Hello I am new here. I also have a problem but it's going anywhere alone. Even driving alone , shopping and going to new places . Not to mention I hate eating out in public. I'm kind of stuck at home . I have to try to start working on driving atleast to the end of the street. It will be tough for me . I hate large places it's not easy going into a mall and I avoid it not to mention the grocery store. I also have to have the keys in my hand to the car when I go in somewhere incase I have anxiety and need to flee the store. I want to know I can get in my car. My phone helps me feel secure to have with me when I have to go in to a place alone. Some days are better than others . I wonder how you are doing . I'm glad I found someone with my same problem although they may not be entirely the same. I have slot if fears if being alone .Even outside but akine at home. It is paralysing. I'm struggling now more than I ever have . Covid didn't help the mask getting sick being quarantined Being in sets me back. The more I practice doing things the more familiar and comfortable I get to a situation but my anxiety keeps me from doing things that I need to that could help my fears of being alone or that I will have panick somewhere that I can't get to away from people anr out of the place I'm in. In even afraid I won't be able to get back home. Basically that is why I don't drive alone . I told you lol I just can't believe I found this app and found someone struggling similar to me. I'm in therapy and it is virtual. I love it because I don't have to leave the house and drive

    You can get better this will get better . Try tiny baby steps and repeat them . Go slow Even if it is just walking out side the door
