Hi everyone! I'm a recently homebound agoraphobic since October. I got a really bad panic attack while driving on the freeway to school, and drove right back home (horrifying experience) and haven't left since. I've suffered with panic attacks since 2005, but have never gotten this bad. I also suffer from GAD apart from the panic disorder. I force myself to go outside daily, but the furthest I can go out is to the sidewalk and back inside, as well as the backyard. It would be nice to meet anyone who has or is going through this as well.
My biggest hurdle is deal with the physical symptoms. I usually struggle with tilting/floating sensations when I get anxious, almost like a light headed/dizziness. Sometimes feel faint (never fainted), racing heart, and derealization. I feel so trapped most of the time!!
