I live in Sarasota county Florida, USA. I've googled so much There's only 1 o left. I tried telephone therapy after begging 1 Doctor. It didn't work for me. Could've been the therapist, I know I need to just face up to the anxiety and go out, but, I don't! Sometimes I really need to go to an MD and after hours of agony and fighting with hubby I go. It doesn't feel worth it though. I get so sick it takes 3 days to recover.
Sorry you are having such a time of it . Not sure I fully understand what you've tried to control the anxiety symptoms. Sounds as though you have seen a therapist, but I don't understand the 'telephone therapy'. You have a therapist now? Or not?
I can respond to the fear of going to doctor. Many of us have that one. Agonize about seeing doctor, feel better after seeing one, exhausted emotionally after. Familiar.
Does your husband offer to take you to doctor? It often helps to have someone with you.
When you say you get sick after seeing doctor, do you mean physically or emotionally or both? We can help you better if you give us more specifics.
Thanks for the post. We will support you in whatever way we can. It really does help to know others have gone through same or similar things.
Here is a nig big list of therapists in your area. You could contact them via email or by phone and see if any do call outs. They seem to vary with the problems they deal with. Just find the one that suits you best. And take it from there.
I am kind of in the same boat here. It seems like I have tried medications for all of the anxiety symptoms, but nothing has really helped. So I've been in counseling for the last year or so. I have seen a lot of improvement in that time, but it's still tough.
I think therapy is the best option. My wife had some anxiety issues, but I helped her find a therapist who did an awesome job up here in Rhode Island. You should look her up, or find another one just like her in your area. http://cordiscounseling.com
Maybe you could try seeing if a therapist could start by coming to your home? My sister has agoraphobia and it was affecting their marriage. So they tried marriage counseling in Manhattan and were able to find someone who was willing to work with my sister's disease, and she did the counseling at their home. So maybe you could start that way, and as your treatment progresses, maybe it will get easier to start venturing outside for therapy.
