Stop panicking!! I work in mental health and agoraphobia is treatable and curable within a few weeks of therapy!! Why do you still suffer with it? You need to get CBT or EMDR depending on the reasons for your problem?
Annie calm down. You have a long way to go and you have not started yet. Its normal to feel anxious about this but you will drive yourself nuts.
I have been where you are. As we all have on here and its a horible place to be. So try and stay calm and try and resist all this stuff going on inside your head. I know it whirs round and round and will make you dizzy. The more you think about things the more anxious you become. Its a vicous circle.
You are worried about your future. I know I was worried about mine once apon a time. As you move thru the process it becomes clearer. But worrying does not help at all. You cant think clearly and guess what you need to do right now? Yea U got it.
Sorry if this sounds patronising. But you need to do something. Right I am going to set you a task. I want you to relax and forget about what you are going to get and not get. I also want you to stop worrying. It will only make you ill. You need max strength to get thru this.
I also want you to forget the diet for now. I want you to eat what ever you want. If you want a cream cake, buy one and eat it. Fancy a bit of steak for tea? Get the grill on. You get the idea?
You need 5 star fuel to performin a 5 star way. I speak from experiance.
Look after yourself and remember worrying for worry sake achives nothing as none of what you worry about happens. Its what you dont think will happen will happen. And its out of your control anyway. So why worry about something you have no control over. Be strong. Chris.
