Fighting Agoraphobia & Anxiety
I purchased the attacking anxiety
program by the midwest center and I have learn't alot of copeing skills to cope with anxiety, depression and agoraphobia. It took me about 8 months to get what they were talking about in this program. My severe panic attacks stopped by the time I was through session 2. After 3 years of being agoraphobic and being in sheer panic when I had to go out or even the thought that I needed to go out I would get very sick. I can now go out a little more each month without panicking. I now want to go out more and more as long as I can comfortably do so. I do not even keep my meds in my jeans pocket now, I used to take them everywhere I went what little times I did go out. Panic attacks and generalized anxiety disorder is why I became agoraphobic and the program did not work for me overnight however everytime I use the selftalk and go out it gets slowly easier and easier each time. I still rather go out and do things with someone else and I am trying to do things by myself because I live alone. My anxiety is still A everyday battle and I am searching for A way to ease that.
