Hi Everyone,

Just thought I would say hello. This is the first time I have looked to connect with like minded people who can understand agoraphobia and panic disorder. Started for me around 6 years ago, and then slowly my world got smaller to the point where I haven't left the house apart from my drive for about 2 years now. Looking to recover and meet like minded people here who will understand me without feeling judged or embarrassed. I have made some good progress within the last 6 years as I have gone from around 10-12 panic attacks a day to a few occasions where I just tell myself it's adrenaline now which it is and it helps me to calm and settle very fast.

Nice to meet everyone, any fellow suffers here?

Hello and welcome to the forum. I am sorry you struggle with agoraphobia and panic disorder. I used to have agoraphobia. I have never shaken of the feeling of being uncomfortable being outside. You will find a lot of support on here.

Hi itsjustAdrenaline,
Welcome to the forum
I've had one episode, I know how frightening it can seem.
With support from my family, I started going out slowly and gradually increasing the time I spent away.
Sending you hugs.
Well done you are extremely brave.
