i just wanted to say i havent been here probably in 9 or 10 months and i have gotten soo much better after suffering a year from agrophobia. there is hope i am now able to go almost anywhere and have a baby boy on the way in december ! i wanted to share with everyone how i got to where i am i fell so lucky and happy . I started going out at night time or early morings when there werent alot of people around and stayed where i was untill my panick attack ended going through those fellings are the most difficult thing i have ever done in my life. i went to the same places untill i mastered them and then started branching out to other places. exercise helped alot but the biggest thing for me was cutting out all caffine . i know everyone is at diffrent levels and it fells impossible to do i once couldnt walk a step out my front door . if anyone wants to talk im here i need freinds who know what i went through

Great job!! Good tips also. I think making those baby steps during the least stressful moments is very important. With commitment there is progress!

Congratulations on the baby and the progress. I have found that exercise uses up that excess adrenaline and helps to maintain the progress that we have made.

Great to hear from you again!

Thanks for sharing this. I'm new here but it's so good to read about members being in recovery. I'm just curious how much caffeine were you drinking before and how quitting helped? Did it make your panic attacks easier to handle? I drink about 3 or 4 cups of tea a day and have been told to stop drinking caffeine too but have been really reluctant. I also feel like I'm in a perpetual cycle of nervous energy.

Congrats on your recovery & your baby. Smile
