well i've been down the road with the SSRI's and i dont want to do that anymore. last may for some reason i develeoped anxiety attacks which then in turn turned into agoraphobia, anyone with agoraphobia knows what i'm talking about so i wont go into it.
I can go pretty muc any where with my hubby and sometimes my daughter but to go alone to the store(s) or picking kids up from school (my husband does it now), i just cant seem to do it unless an extreme emergency comes up to have to do it.
I dont know what else to do now. i surely cannot live the rest of my life hiding under my husbands wing, this is not fair to him nor me nor my family when they need me and i am not available due to the anxiety it brings on..
so has anyone had any success with anything other then SSRI's? i do take valium as needed and i have been trying paxil at 2.5 mgs and each day i have needed a valium 2 mgs to get through the morning from lack of sleep that increases my anxiety level tremendously..
i dont know what else to do..i've already lost my job and my husband took over everything pretty much so i dont need to even leave my house but i want my own life back! i want to pick up the kids from school, i want to work again, i want to go shopping! i want to walk out my door and get in my car with out first having to analzye how i feel, do i have valium with me, do i have something to eat with me, my cell phone, etc...i never had to do this before, before i would pick up my purse, keys and phone and waltz right out the door, go to work, store, kids events, what ever i needed or wanted to do...can i ever get that back!
