I'm really struggling with leaving the house. It's hard enough if I'm with a trusted friend or my husband but almost impossible on my own. The only time I've gone out on my own in since New Year has been to see my CPN and I had a major panic attack and had to go home. I have an appointment to see him next Friday. He wants me to meet him in Costa in town. And he wants me to go alone. I know I'll be fine driving there but the nearest car park is a five minute walk away. I'm already getting myself into a right state just thinking about it. Just the thought of having to walk from the car park to the shop and walking in there alone is making me feel sick with worry. I've been given some lorazepam by my psychiatrist to help with panic attacks but I'm really hoping to get through it without taking one. Any tips or advice on how to manage this? I'm soooooo tempted to phone and cancel but I don't want to let him down and I know it will be good for me to get out again and out of my comfort zone. Urgh!!!! Help!
