Hi Jon! I'm recently new to these forums and already they've been a tremendous help to see and talk with other people going through all this. I also suffer from panic attacks and agoraphobia. Although I had no idea that's what it was until the past couple of months. To me the hardest part was feeling that no one understood me and doctors didn't believe my symptoms. In all honestly, they correctly guessed it was anxiety long before I accepted it. I'm also trying to feel in control again and trying to take care of my physical health. I wouldn't say I'm an introvert, but there's been a drastic change in how I am socially and what I do to enjoy myself over the past couple of years because of anxiety and what I'm feeling or what I fear I will feel, etc. Anyway, I hope you find the same comfort from these forums as I have.
