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.
3 days ago I found out I'm 4 weeks pregnant. My boyfriend isn't really happy about it. He tells me he's not ready to have a baby. he's 25. He asked if I was gonna keep it, & I told him yes. he said I'm gonna screw him with child support. Him saying all that broke my heart into a million pieces. I thought my best friend, soul mate, the love of my life would be as happy as I am. but I was...
I had a major panic attack yesterday which required me to leave a bar. I was only there for about a half hour. While the intensity has subsided, I still feel panicky today and had a hard time going to the supermarket today. Has anyone ever experienced this? How did you get through it?
