Hi everyone i hope you are all ok and coping with Agoraphobia today.
I am lucky in a way as my business and home are in the same town in the North East of Scotland so i do not need to travel to get to work as its a short walk for me which can be a struggle sometimes as well :blink:
I think my Agoraphobia started when i was at school as i just hated sitting in the school assembly hall and use to start getting panic attacks so in the end i landed up getting detention for hiding in the toilets and not going.
Its strange but i find a relationship helps with my feelings but in the other hand i am not ready to have one as i can not do alot in the way of going places which is a pain in the rear area <_<
I find drinking helps me be alot more confident which i am sure everyone does but the feelings i have the next day are not worth the few hours of happiness as the panic gets worse.
I am a Reiki master and i found when being treated it helps alot and makes you relax for a few days but you do need to have a treatment maybe every few weeks but i do recommend having a go at it as it does relax you and make you feel alive but it is not a cure for Agoraphobia it can just help with the feelings.
This was meant to be a little bit about myself but it is starting to turn into a novel so i will stop boring you now and conclude :D

Anyone want to talk about anything i have mentioned or just to say hello please do so as it would be lovely to hear from any of you

Take care

Hey Jen nice to meet you :)

Yer its not very pleasent suffering from Agoaphobia and the worst part is that you feel that no one else has it until you start talking to others who suffer.
My family are great but do not understand what it takes for me to travel but after watching a programme about this condition on channel 4 i think they now have a better idea of the problem.
I too LOVE driving and i sold my TT last Summer as it was sitting doing nothing as i could not take it out which was heartbreaking but i would give anything up to get rid of these feelings.

Anyway hope to speak with you soon :)

I am not on at nights alot but hopefully we can all chat if i am :)

Yer a sense of humour does help and everyone i meet and even friends have no idea that i am like this but i have now told my mates which took a good few years.

Its difficult to talk about it to someone who does not understand but hey........

Anyway nice to meet you and maybe see you online soon x
