    Indeed. I hope you are ok now and continuing to heal your psyche and build your strength. Yes mental health and physical health are interrelated- it's all health. And we are all human. You experienced some major stressors and trauma. I appreciate you sharing your story, and look forward to reading more about your hope and healing.

    Shouldn't be so difficult to diagnose, treat, and get the proper mental health care. Here's to your recovery and good health.

      with agoraphobia.

      Many years of therapy have helped (somewhat) but there are still some things I cannot do (drive over a bridge or overpass).

      It does get better.

      I was housebound for a couple of years and no longer have that problem.

      I don't have problems anymore on planes (go figure) and, no longer feel like everything's rotating around me at 90 miles an hour.

      Hang in there; it will get better.
