    feeling useless

    I think i am becoming agrophobic again.
    I had it a few years ago and the old feelings of panic when i am out are coming back.

    Im starting to find it hard to go out on my own, im a bit better when im with someone else but even then its difficult to be out.

    I really dont want to go down that road again but even going shopping is causing me to have panic attacks.
    I have been trying to make myself go out every day for the past week, even if it is just to the corner shop.
    But today i havent been able to get out of the front door and i feel like a failure.
    It is getting to me because i have been able to force myself out for the past week, so why not today?

    Hi carly89, you are definitely not a failure. Maybe it was 'just one of those days' today. Try and forget about it and do it tomorrow. Good luck and take care

    Hi Carly

    It was just today, love. There is always tomorrow, try again tomorrow.

    I know how you feel, disappointed, probably, but dont be.

    Try again tomoz.

    I did that, several years ago, made myself walk to the local shop. What
    a trip that was... LOL.

    Best wishes and good luck

    Try and persist, I guess.

    I dont apply that theory to everything in life, by far, unfortunately.

    try and walk a short distance.
    thats what i do when i get stuck, i say ok i might not go to town but i will try and walk to the end of my housing estate.
    now you can do this a few times during the day, or you may find once you start walking you keep walking.
    the key is just to step outside even if its one step x
