    There is hope

    This week I have left the house all but one day!!! While I was out the anxiety didn't seem too bad. My palms always sweat, but that is even getting less. Several times I went into stores and other times I just drove my car...but I was out and I felt free!!!

    Next week I will try to take bigger steps and maybe even go into a busy store. If the anxiety is too much I will just walk in and take a quick exit...but it's more than I have done for the last month.

    Just wanted to share my small steps.

    Im happy for you too! That is a big step for you im sure. I agree with brickyard_red. Don't get discouraged when you feel anxious. Just walk out before it gets worse and feel happy that you did a big step. Always keep planning to take little steps bc little steps make big differences.

    Vikki! That is such great news! I am so proud of you, but most importantly you must be feeling very proud of yourself, and feeling more confident!

    Keep doing it, and yeah, like the other gals said, if you start feeling anxious, just walk away! You can try again another day!

    {{{{{Vikk}}}} I wish you all the best!
