Scared to leave my house

(2 Posts)

I feel so unwell, but I think it may be anxiety. I've become increasingly scared to leave my house, to the point where I haven't gone anywhere in a month.

I feel like my jaw starts clenching, like I'm losing control, my head starts spinning and I feel like I'm about to pass out.

I do not want to become a hermit, but feel that this is going to happen. I don't want to be on daily medication as this is another topic of anxiety for me. What can I do?  and does anyone understand what I mean by the jaw clenching/unable to control it? Almost like I am slurring my words.

Hope you’re feeling a bit better. It sounds like social anxiety and you need to see your gp. Really congratulate yourself for getting through each day, I know you’re quite resistant to the idea of medication but it might just help you to do that. Very best wishes to you and well done for posting 💐
