Hi everyone. I am new to this site, and pretty new to this whole social anxiety thing. I have been a bartender and waitress since I was eighteen, and living on my own, and well, we all know a waitress can't make a living being unsocial. Well, about two months ago, I had a really bad cold, and my ear drums were swollen (I was already fighting anxiety) and I almost passed out at work. I worked at an airport, and I was inside securtiy and honestly all that could go through my mind was that I was going to die right there, and I was so scared. Since that day, I have become slightly agoraphobic. I can go to friends houses, and if I am drunk I can go places (i know thats not a good solution) and if my boyfriend is with me I can make it in and out of a store but its got to be quick, but other than that I can't go anywhere alone, and I get nauseous and nervous just thinking about it. I guess, I am looking to hear some success stories of people that got over this fear, or some empathy of people that are going through it because no one seems to understand. They listen, but just don't know what I am going through. Thanks :)
