I recently discovered a book at the library (I like free LOL) and it is amazing. The approach I think may be helpful this time.
You might want to check your library, it's not very thick and the first few pages are 'technical' so I glanced over them but it's called
'The Agoraphobia Workbook' A comprehensive program to end your fear of symptom attacks. By C. Alec Pollard, Ph.D. and Elke Zuercher-White Ph.D.
Hope things are going well your way

I read your wonderful note tonite and I AM GLAD YOU SHARED WITH ME ABOUT YOUR ANXIETY as it is sooooooo confusing to me as I have never gone through anything like this before in my life and this has lasted 3 years==I should count myself lucky that is hasn't been more. My sister, Debbie, was affected in her 20's. I do have "The Anxiety/Panic Workbook" now--just looking at how thick it is and how much info is there is inundating. Hope to start it on vacation this Sun. a.m. and continue until I am done but I don't know it will affect me. I bought $400 worth of tapes/dvd's about 7 years ago off an infomercial in the middle of the nite. I have yet to listen to any as I guess I figure that if I don't listen than it won't be real. I have to leave tomorrow to go to a quilt shop--a quilt shop, something I used to be excited about and now I look at it as a chore!!! This was one of my "loves" and now it is a chore!!! Just doesn't seem fair. I guess it started with "no life" out here or so it seems and I fell into a "comfort zone". Well, I'm note sure you will get this note so I will close for now--thank you so much for answering me. It gets lonely out here as well!!! Vicki aka Jim*s_Queenie

Happy Sparkling,

Welcome to an understanding team. Anxiety is awful - I have my good moments and then it seems I fall back and lately have this left side numb icky feeling - which is menopause too, yech - but it brings on panic attacks. I see a wonderful therapist. The one thing we have to do is move forward as much as we can, taking breaks and relaxing too.
Tonight my husband wants to go somewhere and I want to support him but my flesh is screaming lies - I will do this or that - bottom line I'm going.
Why I started telling you this I don't know emoticon
I guess I want you to feel comfortable, to know you're not alone. I have a few books I'd like to mention but I have to run for now - I'll try to get them on tomorrow.
This will pass you can get over it and no it won't be easy but you will be rejoicing with each new step you take!! Hang in there.

Hi Vicki ... I feel this is a warm safe place for you to be. You will not be judged or criticized here, only loved and understood. Close your eyes and Take a lot of deep breathes ... even when your heart is racing and you're scared. Lots of love.

I have terrific anxiety/panic attacks and need help in ideas to overcome them. Thought I would give this team a try while I am going to a therapist (just started last Wed. in Sept.)but that gets very costly!!! Therapist agrees that making friends in the area we moved to from CA, is extremely tough as it is a tight community with 5 different generations, who of course, are involved with each other when time permits. Hope this is a good team for me mentally!! I'll give it my best shot, which I don't know how good that is. I am in the midst of trying to redo my Spark Page as mine is extremely depressing and I don't want this for this site. I want uplifting!!! I can do it for others, but not myself so friends are welcome, please!!! I am Vicki aka "Jim*s_Queenie" and glad he feels that way about me. Wish I could do the same!!!! J*Q

Happy Sparkling,
Vicki aka Jim's Queenie
