    I don't know about any of you here but I am sick and tired of having to repeat myself to the doctors,what part of no transportation don't they get,and when u try to tell them your meds are not working they go and prescribe them for you anyway.Sorry but i just cannot trust my doctors,they cause me so much stress it is unreal.

    Have you thought about changing your doctor? It is your prerogative if you feel that you're not being understood or getting what you want from him. I'm not sure about the USA but here in the UK they sometimes have volunteers who drive patients about when they have no transport. Perhaps you could ask if there is something like that.

    Regarding your pills, a different doctor may listen to you and help you to find the one that suits you.

    The adult colouring book idea is a good one. I myself have tried these and they do work if you need to relax. I was very dubious when I was first told about them, and even felt a little silly buying one, but they do work. Obviously they won't solve your problem regarding the doctors, only a change will do that it sounds like but they will help you to not worry about it so much while you are trying to decide what to do.

    Although your advice is good... not to worry about it is near impossible when your an agoraphobic. To us.. we may be able to do certain things but, always with difficulty. I can't travel more than 15 minutes in a car. The world is dangerous and evil for people like @XmasCarol52 and i. It's not that we expect danger everytime we leave the house we just look at the world differently alot like a sort of disassociation and detatchment if you will. Panic attacks are more than common there are practically guaranteed and when you can stay at home and you can prevent such awful discomfort. .. it becomes all we care about. Never again do we ever want that feeling of hopelessness and feeling of doom. You know what that feeling is like @pwarbi. Its a simple solution to say to not worry about it but, it is near impossible to follow such advice when your an agoraphobic.

    Kinda crappy. I started my mentrual cycle today and you know how that is. The cramps and the dizziness and the mild headache. And lord.. the fatigue. You see I only have a cycle about every three months so when it comes. . It comes with a vengeance. Not to mention my anxiety is acting up too. :nailbiting::banghead::wtf:

    Adult colouring books are brilliant for relaxing. I bought myself one and did a few in it and then my Mum brought me one as well so I have two now.

    @Concernedgal uh oh! sorry, your feeling crappy today! That time for a female is horrible and can be really painful. That dull ache that makes you feel nauseous and there seems to be nothing on the planet that helps.

    Of course at that time hormones are all over the place so it affects us. It makes us more irritable and heightens our feelings. I think that the pain comes from the fact that the cervix is dilating and the womb is pushing and squeezing out the unfertilized egg. Even though there is no baby being pushed out, I think it is the same kind of thing that is happening to the body, just without the baby so to speak. So in a sense, we are going through the birth process every month, or whenever.

    Bless you! Go and curl up on your sofa and hug a hot water bottle. :nurse:The heat may ease the pain a little.;)

  14. So sorry about your annoying experiences with your doctors, whoever they are. What meds are you taking now? Maybe you can research for yourself about the drugs these doctors are pushing into their patients. Often, these doctors do not have proper knowledge of the dangers of side effects drugs cause to humans. Or, we can help our doctors be informed. I'm not sure if we can come out from the doc's office without being scolded :)

    If the drugs the doctors are pushing onto you are causing devastating problems, I think, plan B is our next recourse. Your health and peace of mind is most important right now.

    Hi i take meds for my diabetes but I have had to rashion them off because they are so expensive.The doctor is a fool or that or there secretaries don't care,she knows I am a agoraphobic and cannot leave my house especially when I told them a million times she say she understands clearly she doesn't get my anxieties at all. Maybe i should write a book then give it to all my doctors but this one is the worse I cannot stand doctors the ones around here are just so terrible.They just do not listen no matter what they tell you.When you have to repeat yourself over and over again saying u cannot get there or u dont feel well meaning my anxieties of fears are making me to nervous to do anything. i don't even like it when someone comes inside my apt it is to nerve wracking,
