    Am fearful of leaving the house....

    I don't know why this started. It was worse when my thyroid med was too high, plus I had horrible insomnia, but now the dosage is about right I think.. I'm sleeping, feeling better, but don't want to leave the house. I have to go out... I need dog food, water, milk, etc... Why am I afraid? I'm retired from law enforcement, plus used to drive city bus. I was fearless. What is this? I hate it!

    Welcome to the forum. Maybe start leaving your house with someone else and slowly build up to where you were in the past.
    You know you can do it, so just try to build your confidence up by doing maybe therapy, self help techniques, natural or
    prescription help, etc. Do whatever it takes to get back on your feet and remember you can do it!
