Default Re: Anxiety treatment process

For a period of about a year about 7 years ago I experienced agoraphobia due to a traumatic event. I wouldnt leave the house and was afraid to drive. In fact I would only drive if my husband took me somewhere. I even had to have a couple of phone consults with my doctor because I was too afraid to leave. Same thing with my therapist at the time. He recommended basic exposure therapy and medication. I took xanax for the panic and started walking to the corner and back. Then driving to the corner and back gradually increasing it to my neighborhood, then local stores, then more and more. It took about 6 months but I was pretty much ok after that.
