GAD / agrophobia
Hi, im almost 21 and i am in college leading what i thought was a normal life. I had never had any problems, but earlier in life a doctor said i might have GERD because i had the sensation of a lump in my throat but the meds never worked. Recently i had been getting nervous riding in cars and going places but I ignored it. Now it is really bad and i almost totally avoid driving, and if i ride in a car i get super nauseated and freak out. I got diagnosed with GAD and i was prescribed Zoloft and for a more instant relief Vistaril. This is really depressing me and I dont know how to handle this. I am almost afraid to leave my room and I couldnt drive home for break to see my parents because i was so terrified of getting sick on the way home. If anyone else has advice, or something positive please talk to me. I feel pretty discouraged and like this is not gonna go away but get worse.
