      I completely understand why you feel this way, a similar situation happened to my parents and my mum struggled with leaving the house or letting anyone in too. Do you live alone? I feel like everyone is probably slightly different but I think living with us kids really helped her recovery along. Perhaps you could look into getting a pet(personally I'm a dog person 😊wink dogs really are your best friends, they understand you more than it seems. Perhaps by having someone else to look out for and also as a companion, it could help you? I don't know, I suppose you might not be an animal person but nether the less, it might be something to look into? I hope things get better for you. Just know that you are never alone even though sometimes it may feel like it. There are plenty of help lines available if you continue to struggle with these issues it may be best to seek their advice as they really do care and will take the time to help you on your recovery. 

      It will work out , just take every day as it comes.

    Hi Gill, overcoming agoraphobia is a long process but easier with help from a councilor. Sounds from your post that you've asked for help but not receiving any, what's going on here who have you asked?

    Staying in the house for two years has only reinforced your anxiety that something bad will happen if you leave the house so the only way to beat this is through a slow, steady and prolonged exposure to the outside world, if you had councelling this is what they would suggest and do.

    Its entirely up to you but I'd suggest the following;

    Stand at your open front door and take in the sounds, smells and sights, touch the door frame and experience any anxiety it brings but stay to the point that you feel a slight reduction in your anxiety (which you will), then go in, keep doing this everyday until you get to the point where you become comfortable and the anxiety is manageable. Once done you can move to the next stage of standing or sitting on the foot path doing exactly the same as at the door.

    The idea is that you keep pushing and desensiting yourself at each level but expect to feel the anxiety you have imagined but staying until it starts to subside which eventually it will, if it gets worse let it as it will start to subside. By doing this you are slowly telling the Amigdola in your brain that you are ok or at least can manage and deal with the anxiety caused which in itself will eventually make it slowly go away. The more you do you will find each step gets easier.

    As for help perhaps phone your GP and ask for a telephone appointment if they do that or a home visit, if your not satisfied with the response send them a letter explaining your situation and background. If that doesn't work a letter or call to your local MP will,almost every time get a result.

    Sometimes you have to fight for the help, you probably need a community psychiatric nurse weekly visit and a professional councilor who visits you at home.

    It is in your hands Gill.

     you need to advocate to get what you need. It may be hard, but sometimes you have to fight tooth and nail to get it
