I feel overwhelmed by things that happen in everyday life. That's why I try to avoid leaving the house. There's less of a chance of me having a panic attack or worse when I'm in my home and away from people. Small things overwhelm me, like getting the mail, going to the store, someone talking to me, someone knocking on the door, noises outside, talking on the phone, & so much more.

I'm in therapy and on medication. (I'm saying that because I don't want yet another comment from someone telling me to do those things ASAP.) But they don't help much. Certainly not enough for me to be able to function as an ordinary person and lead an ordinary life. I do as much as I can do and push myself to my limits, but it's never enough for other people who compare me to others my age and love to tell me of all the ways I fall short.
