Hello all, I am new to this group... I have had generalized anxiety/panic disorder for 15 years or so, but just developed agoraphobia a couple years ago after having a massive panic attack in a movie theater. I can't tell you how much I hate it... I feel pretty good at home but the minute I leave, I start feeling like I can't breathe, my heart beats weird, I get dizzy and so forth. I only go places I have to go and don't enjoy doing anything anymore. I have a medication phobia so am not able to take enough of anything to help. I've also developed IBS, to further make my life unpleasant, lol... Does anyone have any suggestions on how to deal with agoraphobia so I might actually be able to enjoy life a little again? I am seeing doc and therapist but doesn't seem to be helping much.
