Depends on severity. If you're home-bound then just standing in an open doorway may be sufficiently uncomfortable but doable to start. If it is limited to social or public spaces, then you need to become desensitized to those. Either requires small steps, one after the other, as you make progress to defeat your demons.
it is just a mental thing. Don't have a narrow mind and you will be fine
There is a drug called Risperdal which is used to treat schizophrenia and other disorders. I was given it for agoraphobia. The doctor who prescribed it told me that it can train the brain sort of like the way your hair trains to fall a certain way from being combed that way all the time. I had the disease fairly bad but after a few months on the drug I was much better and able to get off of it all together , true it's a scary sounding "anti psychotic" but it can help certain people it helped me.
I stayed inside for a whole year.Then they made me seek help.You'll have to go places and do things weather you want to or not.I'm not saying it's any easier for me.You have to take medicine sometimes and nobodies going to bring it to you.You'll have to get it for your self or have sombody who is reliable get it for you.
I used to be terribly afraid of heights, every time I look down a bridge or pier, I visualize my self falling and crumbling to pieces. Luckily a group zip-lining experience helped me overcome it substantially.
I have a really bad agoraphobia too. But I can try to help you. :)
There's really nothing anyone can say. Your fears are produced directly in your brain and fed to receptors that trigger your responses to things. I would recommend going to maybe a hypnotist, instead of getting on presc<x>riptions. There are hypnotists that can reverse people's phobias.
It's a really tough one to deal with. I wish I could help you. I'm just shy and having a difficult enough time with that. <br />
Was there something that happened to trigger this?
I have chronic anxiety and agoraphobia
I dont know, I'm not sure how well I do cope with it tbh.
feelings like i cant breathe, feeling like im actually going crazy, dizzyess, vertigo, feeling like im not real and like nothing around me is real, the 'space' bothers me alot and looks and feels awful, feeling anxious and worked up and panicky, waves of anxiey, getting really hot and my skin biurning etc
the only thing I can suggest is getting help - a therapist, psychology, hypnotherapy, CBT. You can read books and do online courses. relaxation techniques. gradual exposure...
Go outside. Done.
way to be insensitive
You're welcome. Phobias have always baffled me. The only fears I have are ones that involve my immediate survival.
