Heyy guys,

So I just went to the doctor cuz I can't live like this anymore. I have severe panic attacks and because of that I get too scared to leave my house. I told the doctor I couldn't do basic things like go to a grocery store or to my sports.

So my doctor just began telling me to get over the fear and do all these things. And I just can't. Every time it goes wrong it gets worse and worse.

He also is really against medication. So I still got nothing. I've been seeing a therapist for 4 months now, and everything is just getting harder and harder.

I was really lost before and hoped the doctor could help me. But apparently there is nothing he can do for me.
I don't even know what I have and why this is happening.

Does anyone have experience with being scared of leaving the house and panic attacks? I would like some advice

I just don't know what to do anymore😰😭

Hi wolfie. Sounds to me like you could do with seeing a different gp, he’s not even trying to understand your struggles.
Do you always see him ?
There are usually a few others gp’s in every uk surgery.
Do you meditate?

I've been seeing so many different people, and the switch to someone new is really hard. But I'll try whatever I can.
And no I don't meditate, I've tried it but just couldn't find myself in it.

Everyone when the start meditation struggles with a unfocused mind. Don’t fight it, it’ll pass. The more you mediate the easier it becomes. I’d be climbing the walls without it.
I love putting a sleep meditation on UTube it’s so relaxing.
Ya gotta try & help yourself.
