Non stop Panic/Anxiety since June

Postby Pdxdrummerchic » Sat Sep 15, 2018 11:46 am

I have had PTSD, anxiety, and Panic disorder as my main diagnosis for about a decade. That being said I have worked with a multitude of professionals practicing DBT, CBT, medications, breathing, meditation and other therapeutic skills. However, I have recluse to an agoraphobic state. If I try to push through them, I am bound by the symptoms for days. I have since, lost my job and income as my FMLA ran out. Nothing that is recommended is getting me back to my baseline. I just want this to end. I've been through this before multiple times, but never this long or strong. They've tested my levels of of everything so it isn't a metabolic issue necessarily. I really need some hope or guidance, because my psychiatrist, therapist, PCP and anyone else who knows whats going on is giving me a bandage solution while I am bleeding out from the artery. I can't even walk 2 houses away before the dizziness, blurred vision, and leg shakes lead me to the panic that I am going to die. I can't stand in lines of any kind, so I have only been shopping like 3 times since June, with support assistance with me. I used to be highly functional and actually worked with adults with disabilities. Now my disability is crumbling my world. I have not hope at this point. This is a last ditch effort. Thanks for reading.

Consider, what options did a person in an agoraphobic state have pre-Internet? What would be the last ditch effort prior to 1980?

Not helpful. Pre 80s I'd be locked in an asylum with hundreds of people and be more worse for the wear.

You think anyone and everyone that had agoraphobia was locked up in an asylum prior to the Internet? They weren’t.

Have you ever tried Kundalini Yoga and Meditation? It has helped many people with similar issues than you.
If you need more information about it I am glad to share it with you.
