I can relate. Do you suffer from agoraphobia? (I do, and have similar issues). Panic disorder and agoraphobia are real even if others can't see it, and most likely the reasons you're finding things difficult.

Hi sarita, I too am here to say that I know how difficult some days can be. But I want you to know that not all days will be difficult. I have had my down days if not even weeks or even months and then to have the next weeks and months go on being terrific. I am, currently, working on the cbt program on this sight and I think it is wonderful. I can say I am getting better...even though currently it doesn't seem like it to those around me. I have been six months without a panic attack (a record high for me!), just major anxiety (that I let get out of control), and out of the blue...wham the panic is back, but each time I am better equipped to deal with it. Don't give up... As sue has posted, "keep working on your coping and relaxing techniques and know you are not alone." This is a wonderful group... I was here a couple of years ago, during a very difficult time in my life, and it helped immensely. Let us know how it goes, we are here for you.

Hi Sariita, you are so not alone, thats why this site exists !!! It really is an excellent site, and everyone can really empathise with how you're feeling. What this site does tho' apart from being able to talk and ask others about your thoughts and feelings, is offer an excellent cbt programme that is really well worth doing, and doesn't cost anything !!! It is possible to live with this 'thing', really it is, and live well too, not just exist !! Its not easy, there's good days and bad, lots of doubts, but so much to learn too. People have different 'coping' techniques, and relaxation idea's, most of us have really been there, some still going through it, but know that it can all make a difference, and that you are most definately not alone !! I wish you well

Hi, my name is Sarah and I just found this site. I have been struggling with panic disorder for years now. I have lost my job and my friends, the hospital is like my second home, and I have no health insurance. My family doesn't understand why I can't just go out and get a job. In 2005 I graduated with honors and received my AA in Criminal Justice. So... why can't I just go get a job? lol I have trouble going shopping, let alone going to work! They put a lot of pressure on me and I have no one to go to or talk to.... :confuse:
