Fear if pretty much everything

Recommended Posts

Hi. The reason I am here is because you have a bit about monophobia. I am agoraphobic, I know that much. I had my first panic attack around 4 years ago. I was so frightened that I dialed 911, and now owe a hefty bill. I have PTSD, general anxiety and a touch of social anxiety. I am very hyper-vigilant. I have been for a long time. I always note and obsess over every thing that could go wrong. I know that I annoy everyone who is close to me with my paranoia.

What brought me here is my recent bouts w/ monophobia (maybe?). I've never really feared being alone until the past few weeks, as I am experiencing a lot of stress.

I have many phobias. But, the most recent to surface has really got me pissed off. All of these are not fear of being alone, but I find it a lot easier to accomplish everyday tasks when I am not alone.

I fear taking a shower, as I may slip, or lose balance. I fear driving. I fear eating, because I might choke.

They are valid fears, as with the losing balance and driving, I have Meinere's. But beyond that, I am living my life in fear.

One of the roots of my PTSD involves being forcibly restricted from oxygen. . That would explain my fear of choking. Yet it's been so many years since I was ever even traumatized, and it's showing up now!! Of course I am in a very stressful situation at the time being, so I guess it might trigger it.

But I've never been so hypersensitive to the "being alone" thing before.

I hope that having a community that understands will help.

Thank you, Flo. :) It is really relieving to know that I am not alone in this. I really appreciate the warm welcomes. I am not currently on official meds, but I am going to seek help as this latest phobia is unmanageable. I love to eat, and it slays me that I'm all of a sudden afraid to indulge in one of my favorite past times! I'm sure it's because I am in a time of high stress, but I am long overdue for a visit w/ a professional. I will let you guys know how it goes. When is the chat room most active? I was on the other day, but no one seemed to be around. Thanks again for the support. :)

Thank you Huntress for your post ,

I am at the moment on withdrawl from Lorazopam to Diazapam coming down of this is so hard not that they helped while i took them but like a old fool i foolishly kept taking them as the dr kept prescribing me them , i'm told by a new councellor way to long

At most atm i can only get out of bed approx one hour at lunchtime and another at about 9pm

Like yourself i cannot even enjoy a meal for fear of choking in fact i cannot barely function due to the severe panics and dizziness etc :(

I hope like i said above by knowing your not alone with all this helps and i hope to you soon can find some peace from all this panic etc

love dino
