Going out without someone constantly with you.

Posted 10th April 2012 at 14:20 by warmness

Can anyone not walk down the street on your own? I know I cant, I have to be with someone to make me feel safe and to keep telling me that i dont look stupid. gah its silly because i cant go anywhere with out someone

Has anyone gotten over this and can now take a walk on your own? how did you do it? take the dog for a walk..?

    It's been years (many) but I still don't go out on my own, not even down a street. I often feel like I'm the only one... I'm sorry I am no help, but know you are not the only one. I hope you figure it out soon and please let me know how when you do! =]

    I can`t manage it either :/ I actually managed to get over it about 15 years back and was getting better at it,even going into my nearby town,into shops,even buying stuff all by myself (damn now that song is in my head ). Then I got a health problem called menieres which caused sudden severe dizziness and so on,and I got so scared of what if it happened while I was out,or crossing a road,or riding my bike etc that I`ve totally gone backwards and feel I need someone with me all the time again now. Even just going a few metres up the road

    Life would be a lot easier without "what if"

    I used to be really paranoid walking alone in shopping centres, has got better.
    You just need to occupy your mind/distract yourself instead of thinking everyones looking at me, they think I'm weird etc. Because that will make you nervous. If your thinking about what your looking for or what your going to have for dinner etc your mind will find it harder to worry.
    The other thing to realise is that most people are in their own world, don't care and won't even notice you walking by.

    Aw, sorry to hear that girlinterrupted, sounds horrible making all that progress and then undoing all the work you did.

    Thanks for the tips scentless i took my dog for a walk today on my own, i had my mp3 with me so it made it less scary x
