I am feeling optimistic about these drugs. Normally by now, all the others have stopped working. However, today we had to do a small shop, managed to do it, managed to leave the house without a panic attack.
I think the next stage is, starting to go further afield without my son or my partner. At the moment, I still have them as a safety net. To be able to get a job, I am not sure they are going to be able to come with me.
I also need to break some of the routines I have been using to be able to do things. For example, after doing something, which I know is going to cause me anxiety, the next day I usually make sure I have a quiet day, with just walking the dog being the main thing. However if I can, do something else, such as go for a walk down to the town and back again and build up from there.
