I am in my 50's, a female who is very depressed with tachycardia and prehypertension.
I was never treated for my tachycardia as I was told it was "just anxiety" which I d
[More]o have, but am very concerned about my very very rapid heartrate and believe it will probably cause my death. Thank you so much for letting me be a part of your site.
How have you been? I've been encouraged by my weight loss over the past 30 days. I've lost a total of 7.2 pounds. I'm still having problems with anxiety and not wanting to go anywhere but i am setting goals for going out several times a week and sticking to it. Tomorrow is my day for going out! wish me luck, LOL. I hope you're doing ok. Anna
I didn't go anywhere yesterday. Was suppose to go to the chiro and meet a friend afterward but I just couldn't bring myself to go. I cancelled both. However I did reschedule the chiro appt for today and I WILL GO, lol. I really don't want to though. I've got butterflies in my tummy and have already been to the bathroom 4 times. Hopefully both will settle down before it's time for me to leave. I've got 2.5 hrs yet. It's too bad I my chiropractor doesn't do home visits, LOL. He is a Godsend and I have would NO life without him! With his help I can at least get rid of 50% of my aches & pains. Hope you have a better day today!
I know what you mean about actually LIKING to stay inside! I do prefer staying home. I have worked since I was 13 and went to school full time. I was always on the go 24/7. and now that I can afford to stay home and not work I actually prefer it over going out with friends (what friends I have left!). I have been off work 3 yrs and this agoraphobic behavior has just started within the past yr. I don't mind it at the stage it's in as I can still manage it. I do fear it getting worse as I know it will eventually. However my dislike of drs is greater than my fear of getting full blown agorophobia! when it gets to the point I can't control it, I will start thinking about getting help.
I seen your post about agoraphobia and just wanted to let you know...I have the very same exact symptoms! I recently posted a question about it too. I'm new to this site so I'm not sure but I think if you go to my page you will see the question there. The people who responded to yours, also responded to mine and they made a lot of sence and really helped me out. I am taking their advice and going out and trying to do more instead of limiting myself to just a few 'friendly' places I always go. I'm not sure how it's working yet but I'll keep it up until I either can't or it goes away (and I highly doubt it will just go away because I'm making myself go out but I will try). anywho..just thought I would pop in to say high and let you know your not alone.
