Life Notes

.
Just a quiet, little admission in the wee hours of the morning... I managed to get out of the house today. Went to the bank, mailed a letter, then went to the supermarket.

The scariest two and a half hours I've spent in a long time, but at least I did it. Go, me.

WELL DONE - The first few steps are always impossibly hard, aren't they?

It's difficult to comprehend how much this kind of thing can be debilitating. Until I started driving this year, I only left the house once a week, and I felt like everyone was staring at me. Congratulations on caring about getting out. I hope you feel buzzed at the achievement!

Spouse bought me an iPod for Christmas and, I know it's going to sound daft, because I play it when I'm out, it sort of reinforces that bubble of personal space around me, makes it more substantial somehow. Makes me feel less inclined to tremble, because once the trembles start...

Well done. Go you!

I reckon that deserves a Snoopy dance.

I didn't realize you were agoraphobic. Wow, that's quite an achievement!

When I moved to Vegas I would have panic attacks every time I got near the strip for three months. I get really nervous when around large groups of people. So I understand a tiny bit what it's like to fear something where everyone else thinks you should just be fine.

Go you! You should totally be proud of yourself! That's awesome. Congrats!

Actually, three different errands on one outing sounds like quite a lot. You did it!

GO YOU!!

The grocery store and the mall are my least favorite places on earth. I avoid them like the plague and do 85% of all of my shopping online (clothes, electronics, paper goods, toiletries, etc). My therapist and I often discuss the fact that I have nothing in my fridge except diet coke, which I pick up at the convenience store when filling my car with gas.

Go you! And now, no matter what, you can look back at that and tell yourself that you have done it, and you will therefore do it again. ::hugs::

I am so very proud of you love! It took a heck of a lot of guts to do that.

Now, next challenge - bedtime. ;-)

If you don't go out at other times then it's good :)

Well, congratulations! Facing your fears is the most courageous thing anyone can do - and you did it. Hopefully next time will be a little easier.

*cheers and waves*
