I can't even set in the congregation at church bcause there are A LOT of people. don't join in on functions bcause of that . bought ticket to see Brantly Gilbert. had to leave, to many people. currently seeing therapist, just found out psychiatrist is leaving. BIG BIG some kind of attack. don't know if it was panic or anxiety. don't deal with male drs. feel more comfortable with women.

Hi pistolsmoma. Im assuming you are female by your profile name... but at any rate, I am sorry you are going through this. Have you been dealing with these feelings being around crowds for a long time or is it something that has happened recently? I have experienced similar symptoms, but they come and go. There have been times when I have completely panicked being around people and had to leave. Then there are times I am ok, but there is still some anxiety there. I think it is triggered by my ptsd, abandonment issues, self-consciousness.
How long has this been happening? Sounds like you have grown to depend on your psychiatrist and are having a tough time with the change. You feel more comfortable with female doctors? Was there something in your past involving a man acting inappropriately? I had dissociative identity disorder - caused by being molested and abused as a child. I tried 28 psych meds - nothing ever really helped. What helped was long- term therapy with a trauma counselor that did EMDR. It's a way of getting your brain to put memories to rest, rather than them being still active (and causing you trouble). If you have any inkling of a trauma in your past, please consider this. I hope you can get past all this - there is a big, wonderful world out there for you to experience. Regards, EJ23
