I have had anxieties for most of my life and I had an enabling mother that wouldn't make me do anything that I wasn't comfortable with. Then I had a husband that wouldn't let me work or go places alone. Now I have a man that has such horrible anxieties himself that I can't go many places without him because it makes him anxious of losing me. I have never had a real job and I'm 37 years old. Sometime soon I'm going to have to figure out some way to get the courage to get a job. My youngest and last child is entering school this year and I would like to at least explore my options. I go into panic attacks when I apply for jobs and go to job interviews. Even when I had a seasonal job, years ago, I would struggle not to go into a panic attack even though I had worked there the previous year. Once I'm used to something, I'm fine but the fear of the unknown...the fear of not doing things right...the fear of being made fun of for messing up is overwhelming to me. How do people do it???

My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
