    He is on medcine, but he doesnt like it. For everytime he takes it, he is alseep for hours. He feels like he is a prisoner and I can see why. He says, I dont wanna take it because all I do is sleep, and its true, we can be on the phone, and it makes him sleep faster when he hears my voice, I guess that can be a good thing lol, but it turns into I am screaming in the phone to wake him up. He sees it as his "issue" to where I see it as him. What kind of doctor can I go to? An do I need to see if he wants to go to a doctor? I do not live with him yet, I am in the process of trying to! I am going to see him in a couple weeks, should I take him something, or just be me? Honeslty I am scared, but I love him. Thats why I guess I wanna know more.
    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,

    I am not sure what medicine he is on, but right now his mom is putting alot of stess on him. She know he has it, but she doesntg care, she is trying to kick him out, and he knows he wont be able to make it on his own, he says I am safe, and I didnt know what that meant until lately. We have tryed to get her to read more on it and she doesnt seem to care. She thinks he is using it for an excuse because he cant get a job, he hates himself and feels trapped, please help me.. I am lost an confused.... I want to help him.. and his mom wont take him to a gp or even group support....

    Hello Lisa!

    I haven't been on the forum for a few days now - had 2 REALLY HORRIBLE days - i think the incident in Blockbuster has had a knock on effet! I really HATE it!! I spent the day in bed because i was that fed up - i was nausea, feeling wobbly and giddy, irritable, scared! My boyf finished work early yesterday and we went to Tesco for a big food shop - i really didn't want to go! In the car park i felt paralysed, as if to scared to leave the car and then as we entered Tesco i realised everything had changed and moved around which added to my confusion! I got angry and upset as i struggled picking veg, why couldn't i be happy and o.k. like the people around me. I started to panic and we whizzed around the shop!! My boyf can tell when i'm getting stressed and panicking, or as was the case in Blockbuster, i shouted for him across the shop!! i'm sorry to be grumbling today but i'm just fed up with these constant anxious feelings!

    hope your cold is better and you have had a few better days than me!

    Lisa,
    I know I have not written in a few days. But things have just happened. I am leaving today at 4pm, to make the 1,400 mile trip to go see Chris. His mom is not being nice to him. She gave him two options, either he can go get a job, or he goes in the hospital, otherwise, at the end of the month, shes kicking him out. She refuses to read forums like this, she says why does she need to read what other people wrote, he had her read information, and I dont understand it, but she refuses to believe anything, she thinks with medicine it can be cured. I know all I can give him is my time, and love, and its all he has from me. But I DO NOT UNDERSTAND, this woman who calls herself a mother. How can you refuse to listen to your own child. I set back and I listen to her, and it drives me mad. What shall I do? I dont have a place of my own yet, so we cant live together, I am bout to live in my car for 3 weeks for him, just so I can see him. But I need to know, I just need to know, is there anything I can do to help her, WHY DOES SHE REFUSE, she thinks he uses it as an excuse, and I know he doesnt. Please help me Lisa, this is hard.....
