hello. im emma, and i have been suffering from agoraphobia for 3 years now. i have always suffered with panic attacs since the age of 16 , and i have been able to control them to a certain degree sometime being panic free for 7 years . suddenly after a break in my panics they started again leaving me unable to travel for long distances . the fear began when i would remember the past experiances of panic leaving me avoiding all situation where anxiety would start.
my husband and i slit up last year and i desperatly want to find love again. i have been using the dating sites to try and find my soul mate . my parents belive i should forget love and try and recover from my problems about going to far from home . they say no man will love you or take you on , the way i am now. i disagree , but maybe they are right .
things i am able to do .... go to local shops, and see friends in my small village , i am trying to focus on what i can do rather than what i cant . i have recently bought a book which is from off the web sites iam finding this very helpful , its called the lindon method . maybe this would be of help . in the past i have controled my panics with letting the feeling run through my body and run out through my fingers and feet saying to myself here you come ok iam just going to let this experiance ride through me . also try to think this will not hurt me , it never will and never has iam incontrol. hope you liked my story there is much more i would like to say i will keep everyone posted , feel free to comment take care xx
