I haven't been here in quite a while. But somehow found my way here tonight. I read some posts on agoraphobia and I have some comments and questions. I hope someone will reply! I have had CFIDS/FM since 1989. I did have some problems with panic attacks before this; but I got through it. But with the CFIDS/FM, my problem with the panic is extreme. I do not want to be alone in the house. I do not want to drive alone. Does anyone else feel this way and if so, what do you do about it? Over the years I have tried the anti-depressants, but can't tolerate them.. I currently take Klonopin at night. There's much more I could write, but that is the basic facts, so I'll wait to hear from someone and elaborate some more. Thanks!
