As of November last year my agorgphobia reared it's head once again. The first time it happened in my first year of high school. I ended up being homeschooled for 2 years and I returned to an adult campus. I did well and begun thinking it was a thing of the past. 6 years later it returned.
But here's my issue. Last month I got sick, around the 15th, and I threw up twice, just small amounts of clear fluid. I can't eat much since then, whenever I did I would feel dizzy and nauseous. It continued that way for just over a week.
I continue feeling nauseous now. Only I can't tell the difference between feeling hungry or being nauseous. I wake up at 3am and don't know if I'm going to be sick.... or if I need to eat a cracker. I sleep with a bucket next to my bed.
My other problem is that whenever I talk to the Dr about it they see that I'm agoraphobic and suddenly put it down to that. The other is that they also put it down to my diabetes, type 2. I've been on the cuss line since I was 6 years old and have never suffered from it at all and was told a few weeks back that I had become glucose intolerant and was most likely that way for quite awhile.
They just send me home. I feeling like bashing my head against the window because I know what the next day is going to be like. And the next. And I can't deal anymore.
Is my being unable to eat or sleep or doing anything really because of my agoraphobia? I really just need to know.
See your Doc. & don't be afraid to give him the truth about how you feel about your diagnosis. Agoraphobia's mercifully not something I've experienced, but guess it's not nice for sure. As a layman I'd say you were likely to be suffering from anxiety at present. Don't be put off by a Doc. that you can't communicate freely with. Ask him to refer you to some other Doc. Be firm about that, you know your own mind better than anyone. Good Luck
