Resolved Question: How can I over come my
I am 17 years old, and graduating high school in less then 3 weeks. I have lived with agoraphobia, panic disorder, social anxiety, and general anxiety disorder for the past year now. It has stopped me from being myself. I now have problems leaving my house and fear i will start becoming depressed if i do not get help. I want to over come these problems as soon as possible. i am tired of not being able to live my life.I have tried going to a therapist and i started feeling better, so i stopped going. My parents were happy, they felt that i did not really need to see a therapist and should be able to over come my problems on my own. i do not know how to tell them that i want to go back, i dont even know if a therapist would help anymore sense we already talked about every thing we could of. i am on prozac and have asked my mom to ask if my dosage could be up'd being that it is no longer working. My mom is very much against medication and drags her feet whenever the topic comes up. i feel as though i am stuck between a rock and a hard place, i do not know what to do. If anyone can suggest a way to help me, i would be very grateful!

Resolved Question: What am I going to do?
Okay..So I am a 22 year old male. I live in the U.S. and I am having the worst trial of my entire life. A few months back I suffered a terrible dramatic trauma that has left me SEVERELY disabled...I have extreme anxiety and agoraphobia...linked to being away from home and ESPECIALLY being in a car. Because the first time I had a panic attack I was in a car. I have been in and out of the hospital because of this debilitating disorder...I have been on every medicine you can imagine. The one and ONLY time I felt COMPLETE relief from my symptoms was when I was rushed to the ER in an ambulance because my pulse was up around 120-130 and my BP was like 155 0ver 91. And at the ER they gave me a 1Mg Ativan which instantly cured me of ALL the symptoms..I was ME again. Since I have been seeing a psych doc at Cherokee health systems. He ABSOLUTELY refuses to prescribe me even a LOW dose Ativan or ANY benzo's at all. I have NO history of drug abuse and can pass a test any day of the week. He has been prescribing me things that instead have actually LANDED me back in the hospital for physical problems that they have caused. I'm between a rock and a hard place because NOW i'm so bad that i cant leave my house at all to even make my appointments. I am currently taking Propranolol 10mg in the morning and at night...it takes the edge of..but I still have all of the BAD symptoms of my ptsd and panic. What should I do?! I feel so lost and like these doctors don't want to see me get better :(. Any advice at all? Because I honestly can't take living this way anymore. I want to be me again... I just really need to find someone who is willing to prescribe a benzo....I'm not in this to get "high" i just want my life back and this was the ONLY med that med me normal again. @toadguru I can completely understand where you are coming from. But Yes I have tried MANY SSRI's and SNRI's I cannot tollerate ANY of them. I have been on buspar...just made everything worse...been on cymbalta, zoloft, celexa, welbutrin, remeron, trileptil, abilify,
gabapentin, lamictal. I'm now taking propranolol 10mg twice a day. Nothing...and I mean NOTHING has helped me. All these meds have me me almost lose my mind (excluding propranolol). At this point...It's either A VERY low dose of some kind of benzo...or I am done for and won't ever leave my house. I haven't left my house without issue in 4 months... I'm at the end of my rope here. Also... I have severe PTSD related to my panic attacks and agoraphobia... I literally start screamiung at everyone and become VIOLENT when I am made to leave the house I have been taken away in an ambulance so many times now because it was the ONLY way to get me to the hospital because my BP wads up so high from the panic and anxitey. I litterally don't know what to do anymore. I am NOT depressed and am generally a happy person but I am thinking about suicide because I see absolutley NO way out of this. I can't get to ANY of my doc apps. because I can't get into a car without immediately getting right back out..and if someone tries to stop me bad things can happen and I have absolutely no control over this at all. Should I just be euthanized...?
