Hi i am new to this site, and i do need advice, i have been suffering from panic attacks for over six years now and just recently have become a problem again and now on top of that i have just been told by my gp that i have agorphobia too, which really isnt a surprise to me, i just need to know how to get rid of these problems, i have been trying so hard to fight it but it just doesnt seem to be getting any easier. any advice will be much appreciated . :cry:

A huge welcome to the forum you will find loads of support both on here and in chat :)
I wish i could tell you how to stop the panic etc i am myself housebound with agoraphobia. :(
Maybe ask your doctor to refer you to a councilor for CBT have heard it can help with the proper councilor :)

Thanks for the kind words and advice, i have been recently hearing alot about cbt and is something i would like to look into for the panic attacks and agoraphobia, but really dont know much about it, so if you know more about it i would be greatful for any info you have.
I am so sorry to hear that the agoraphobia has affected you to badly, i myself do know what it is like, i at one time didnt leave my house for six months and it really was one of the worst points in my life, i never felt so lonely as i did then, but with tons of patience and strength i didnt know i had, i was able to overcome it and start leading a normal life again, but stress became a problem and right now the agoraphobia has returned, but this time i will not let it win so i try to go out as often as i can even if it is only around the block, i am hoping that each time i do go out it will get easier especially when shopping, (wish me luck)
I am so sorry that you are so badly affected and i hope that you have some success really soon.
love gizzy :)
