I was searching the internet and found this site. Over the last 7 years my life has slowly become one of isolation. Doesn't matter what I do, it never goes away completely. My main problem is I've developed panic attacks that actually trigger colon spasms. So now I avoid going out in public because if by chance I get a panic attack then I will have to find a bathroom pronto. I rarely go out anymore, even to the store. I would love to date and marry again someday but how in the world can you explain much less have a normal life with this disorder? It's very depressing. Now my social life is on the computer not only in my job but social networking. I'm a hit on-line and people would never know I suffer from this with the way I post and by my pictures. It's torture to be afraid to go anywhere. Sometimes I want to just post and see if anyone out there will mentor me and help me start getting out of my house and going places. Sorry, just needed to vent. I hope to find some friends on this site who know what I'm going through.
