I am new here but really need to talk to people who understand.
My doctor gave me meds for anxiety a year ago and yesterday I saw a psychiatrist because I wanted a proper diagnosis
He said I had agoraphobia which I have read up on a realize its not just never wanting to leave the house.
I have no issue being in public but I do avoid certain situations to an extreme degree. I dont want to freak out in public.
Then today I found myself crashing into that situation. My personal kryptonite
My car broke down!! I know why. I havent taken it for an oil change because I missed the month I was meant to do it and then it snowballed because I didnt want to be told Id ruined the car or scolded for not taking care of the car. I just havent taken it in for months and months.
I asked my boyfriend to take the car in a while ago but he just explained how easy it would be and I dropped it because I was to embarrassed to explain the idea of taking my car for an oil change made me have a panic attack. I didnt want to have a panic attack explaining it!! It was hard enough to ask.
Now Im at home waiting to hear how bad the car is and I actually feel like I would rather die than deal with this.
Its so embarrassing to be a functional adult who cries and vomits over the idea of an oil change.
I cant stop crying and I cant take a full breath.
I am a christian and I deal with alot of stress and this made me fall apart... I was just looking at the news and i am terrified, not because all the guns and stuff. It's because the apocalypse of god i am absolutely terrified. Please help calm me down. I am about to cry... I am afriad that i will die and go to hell.
I'm new here and I've never tried anything like this but I thought I'd give it a try, I've been experiencing severe panic attacks and anxiety for more than 3 weeks now, from morning to night they just never seem to go away!, what's even worse is that although I'm married I feel so alone dealing with hell all by myself, I've been to the e.r 3 times, twice by ambulance because I was certain...
