Have you got a friend or family member you could talk to? Sometimes i find it difficult to go out especially alone and find it easier to go with someone and start of with somewhere close and gradually go further the more comfortable you feel. Good luck

Honey, you have my sympathies. I've been unable to go out without my husband or daughter for over a year now and its horrible cos my hubby works 6 days a week so i'm very rarely out. the walls just feel like they're closing in all the time and my family (who are less than helpful) think i'm just lazy and can't be bothered to go out. its nearly summer and the thought that i'm going to be sitting looking out at the sun depresses the life out of me. you're not alone.

When I even think about leaving the house I get really bad sweats, my head goes all fuzzy and I think I'm going to pass out, my heart beats really fast, my fingers and toes go numb - its all just anxiety. Its shit!! Then when I calm down I get a terrible headache and have to lie down and the headache can last from a couple of hours to a couple of days.
