Scared of going out of the house.

Please help. I struggle with anxiety anyway and find things difficult however was managing. Fast forward to last week and a stranger presumably mistook me for someone else and was very verbally abuse and threatening and made threats against me and the kids. I have reported to the police but don't know who it was.

It has really knocked me. I don't want to leave the house. I work from home so work is not a problem until I need to go to a meeting. I'm only going around the couple of streets local to me because I have to to take the kids to the bus stop , everytime a car slows near me its making me panic.

I'm gutted that some little bastard has made me feel like this

You poor thing.

Can someone go out with you for the first few times, while you build your confidence up?

I have been housebound due to both MH and physical health problems, but in either case the longer you stay indoors the harder it is to build the confidence up to go out. Set yourself very short journeys to begin with and increase slowly, even if that means just walking to the end of the road and back to start with.
