    hi!
    i live in sheffield, england . . . . . . . . i've noticed that alot of people who use this site are american. where do you live?

    my best friend has just got a staffy, he's 4 months old, and a monster . . . . . . . . i imagine it's because he's a pup, just mischievous! my boyf keeps promising me that when we move to a bigger place he'll get me a dog then.

    hello lisa.

    is ilkeston in derbyshire? i like living in sheffield, it's nice to be near the peak district. i often go to ladybower reservoir where it's quiet and no body about. we had snow yesterday and it looks lovely this morning. my boyfriend and i had a walk in the snow last night, i usually feel very lightheaded and faint with the anticipation of going out, this worsens depending on my reasons for going out. i prefer to go out when it's dark as i'm not likely to bump into many people!! it's very peaceful and nice where i live in sheffield, there's a little village 5 mins walk down the road. if i have to go to the shops on my own i listen to my walkman, that really helps, i focus on the music rather than on how i'm feeling. maybe you should try that? if i have a bad moment whilst i am out, it scares me and it takes a while for me to come round. in the beginning, i'd go to bed and sleep, now i can just sit quietly and it eventually passes. i have spent so long focusing on these horrible feelings, the slightest thing can upset me. my worst feeling is faintness, i get so tense i feel awful. if i could switch my brain off from constantly thinking about these feelings i'm sure i'd be o.k.!!

    i'd love a miniature schnauzer. they are lovely dogs. and it would bring me lots of happinness.

    i hope you have had a better day today. as it's the weekend my boyf is off work, it's nice to have him about but i feel funny, my routine gets disrupted! sounds funny really!

    Hi,

    Well, I do not have Agoraphobia, but my boyfriend does. His parents do not understand, and it hurts me to see this, I am trying to help him but I feel helpless. He says no one understands, but I do, I want to take care of him and care for him, can you help me in this, all I want to do is help him, I give him my time, and love, what else can I do for him?? Please help me.

    I know I don't have Agoraphobia, but the man of my life does, only I understand him, and I want to learn more. Help me.

    Lisa Marie,
    Thank you for answering, you know I have some anxiety attacks, because of things that happened when I was younger, but its not the same. All I can do is give him time, and all the love I can, but it seems so hard at time. I dont live in same area as him, an it hurts me knowing I cant do anything, I feel so helpless, for weeks I have been reading on it. I wanna know more? What can you help me with ?

    Sonya

    hi lisa!

    i didn't have such a good afternoon yesterday. the day started off well then by the afternoon i was really restless. my boyf and i decided to watch a dvd, i really didn't want to go the shop to get one but did. for the first few moments i was fine, then started panicking because i couldn't find the dvd i wanted, then all of a sudden i realised i was surrounded by people, i went hot, dizzy, had a flash of panic and went disorientated. it was horrible. of course it left me feeling edgy for the rest of the evening. i hate it!!!
    bblleeeuurrrgghhh!!

    yeah, we've had some more snow over night, i like it when it snows!

    i had a cold not so long ago, it makes things feel 100 times worse. i hope you are feeling better today.

    Hi Sonya!

    As Lisa has said, he needs your support and a trip to the Drs is advisable. Is he on medication or receiving any other professional help?

    At first my boyf found it really hrad to understand what i was going through but his support and care has meant so much to me. That really does count for a lot.
