Hi Taffy. I was wondering if you were able to see your doctor?

Hey there, hope you are well. Are you able to go out at all? is it fear of any social situation?

Hi yes I can go as far as the store near me but even that takes a lot of effort? It's any kind of a Dr appt that I can't get myself to go. I get terrible anxiety before my appt and I cancel. I don't know if it's agoraphobia as I can go out. I feel pretty hopeless thank you for your concern.

Does your doctor know how much you fear going to your appointments? Maybe they will be able to support you. I am so sorry you fear going out and going to appointments. It is a very difficult fear to have.

I've been through something similar. Are you able to build baby steps towards more social settings so you can eventually go to more places? Is it the fear of people in the Dr's office judging you?

Hi it's not the people in the Dr. office. It's leaving my apartment to go there I get too anxious.
