I have mixed emotions. I have attended many support groups, various types, when I am not in my "agoraphobic" state, and found that some groups are helpful and some are not. How does one get support when they are housebound? My travel radius has been reduced to about 10 miles now. Many people have social and anxiety being in groups of strangers. Anxiety disorders, in my opinion, are sometimes the most bothersome and persistant but get moved to a lower classification compared to other mental illlnesses when it comes to the medical communities. I know many who are rural have little or no support (peer or support group). Also in public mental health people with anxiety are grouped into other forms of mental illnesses which tends to add to "am I going to end up like this", which we don't in the majority of cases. It is a challenge.
