For a long time, maybe 6 months or longer, I was struggling with getting out of the house. It was getting really bad, I wouldn’t even step outside to check my mail which is literally right outside my apartment door unless it was night or super early when absolutely no one was around. Being outside was just so overwhelming. I have panic disorder so once in awhile I do have agoraphobic tendencies when my anxiety gets out of hand. For a couple years I was leaving the house no problem then slowly my anxiety and panic attacks were becoming more frequent and about half a year ago I started going out less and less and it just progressed. In the past few weeks it’s been getting much better. I hung out with a friend. Went to the dentist (which is a HUGE thing for me, I’ve been avoiding that for a year) and have been going out most days without any feelings of dread. It’s nice to not be afraid and it’s getting better everyday. It’s not easy, I still have to push myself to get out the door but it’s definitely progress.
