New to Group


Hi my name is Brenda and I was just diagnosed with agoraphobia in January of this year. I didnt realize what it was until it was explained to me. I have been looking for an online group for awhile and finally stumbled onto this one. So Hello everyone and I hope that my questions are not too repetitive for the group.

Welcome Brenda!!!!!

Ask away. We all know what it feels like to want to comprehend this illness. It is a weird one! You can read my diary entries "Physiology of..." and "Beyond Exposure" for some info and my views (click on my picture, the diary is on my page). No question is too small or silly or too big. We are here to help one another out. I am so glad you found us. This is a truly terrific group of people! Have hope.

Welcome to the group. Feel free to ask me any questions you may have. I am on here a lot so I'll get back to you pretty fast. Feel free to send a pm or just start a new discussion in the forums.

I just found this site a little less than a month ago and absolutely love it. It is so helpful to connect with other people who understand.

I hope you find it helpful and I am looking forward to getting to know you! Smile

Welcome Brenda! There is an old Russian proverb: повторен& #1080;е - мать всего изучения OR... "Repetition is the mother of all language" it kind of looses a bit in translation. Wink The only question that is bad is the one that is not asked.

Look forward to hearing your story.
