Hello from Kansas. My name is Susan and I am 49 years old. I have been Agoraphobic for most of my life. I have had anxiety for as long as I can remember. I feel like I am in my own self made prison that I have locked the doors and windows with locks that can never be broken to let the sun back in. I have never wanted anything more than to get some kind of a more normal life back. I want to be able to go out my front door without all the "what ifs" zipping through my mind over and over or feeling like I can't breathe with the dizziness disoriented feeling taking over. I ordered the Lucinda Bassett program around 9 years ago but have never made it through the whole program. I am on my 3rd attempt now and am on the 8th chapter with 7 more to go. I am praying that this year will be the year that myself and so many others that are suffering like me can and will break out of our prisons to see the sun shining again. I am looking forward to getting to know everyone here and learning from others.
