Just curious how everyone feels about this.... Should we push ourselves to do things that we KNOW causes us anxiety... or avoid these situations. I am torn, I am not sure if by avoiding it we are feeding our anxiety because we are letting it win, or by pushing the limits, we are causing unneeded anxiety. For instance, when my anxitey was at its peak, before I was on medicine, I had a SEVERE panic attack Wal*Mart. Now, just the thought of going to Walmart spikes my anxiety. Should I go, and fight the battle, knowing before I had anxiety it was one of my favorite places to shop, and show myself I can go there and it will be okay... or do I avoid it if it's not necessary to go there, to avoid the anxiety and panic all together? Also, does anyone have this? A place or situation that you had a severe panic attack, (something you never had a problem with before) and now that you had panic in that place or situation, it always causes anxiety?
