Hi my name is Laura I am 41. I am married and have one son who will be 18 in a couple of weeks.

I have had issues with anxiety for most of my life. I have been very good at hiding it even from myself.

Things have progressed to the point where I am essentially homebound. I do leave with my husband to do some things. Things have gotton so bad my mother flew in from out of state to take me to the doctor. I am happy to find a group where I am not alone. I am excited to start the diary since I always feel silly talking about my fears to people who dont have the same problems I do.

Hey Laura,

I was the newbie in July...I can't tell you how much support and friendship I have found here! I don't know how I ever got along without this group!

thanks to both of you for the welcome. It is going to be nice to be able to talk with people who understand. I am getting sick of talking to people who are clueless even if they love me.

Welcome LauraAnne! You are so lucky you found us...lol We are a great group that already loves each other. This makes for an instant connection. We truly understand each other and are non-judmental. I too am sick of trying to explain myself to my loved ones. I have done less of that since I have been in this group. To finally find people who truly understand and care is a gift from God! Please try to come in as often as possible, I think you will find a lot of support and encouragement! We truly care!

Hey L.A. (I just nicknamed you) Welcome to the Homies. That would be our club name as of 2 days ago. We're all pretty much housebound and highly medicated. Well I am! You have just entered the safest place in the world, other than your house. Feel free to say anything anytime, and don't be afraid to sound silly. Everyone here is whacked and we love silly. Well, see ya later. Maybe it's time for a Friday night net party. What do you think? Silver

Well I am doing a cyber move in right now. maybe this place will help be break the facebook addiction I have. i am up for any party that keeps me at home without bringing people into my house. i am not highly medicated yet since my anxiety and agoraphobia have remained my little secret for years. i have finally been draged to a doctor and meds have been perscribed, so now I am waiting for someone to go get them. Silverguy thanks for calling everyone whacked I love to joke around I tell my kid that "mom is crazy" all the time but some people don't think it is funny. I have to laugh it is the only way to get threw the day when I wont even answer the door half the time.

Pink, Family is hardest to deal with. Probably because we have such high expectations but I now just tell them straight out. And if they have a problem with it then they have a problem, I don't since I have enough problems of my own to deal with.

Thank you all for the welcom, it is so nice to read about people having the same problems.
