Agoraphobia is one of those forms of anxiety that is double-edged. Since most anxiety therapists want to see you in person, how do you get there? I talked with several therapists over the phone and all said they only saw clients in their offices, what good is that to me? I was searching for anxiety help near me and all I found was people who could not help. I eventually turned to the Internet and found entire communities of anxiety specialist who were able to help me remotely, they only virtually turned up at my home.
I have many of my problems with me, I have many of my anxiety problems with me, I have many of my social anxiety problems with me, I want to get to know you in person but there is only one way I know of to get to know someone in person. The only way I know of is to have a face-to-face conversation, and what a wonderful thing the Internet is.
I could have taken an online class or taken a quick webinar and it would have been useless, the Internet does not stop here, I could have talked with someone and talked it out and gotten to know them in that manner, it would have been all over in a flash, as it should be, I was not missing a day, I was not missing weeks, I would have gotten to know them right there, and I would have gotten to know them better over the course of a day than all my courses, all the help I could find, all the therapy I could do, all the pharmaceuticals I could take and all the self-help that could have helped, none of it would have been able to prepare me for what that first conversation with someone would be like.
The first time anyone meets someone, that person is just another faceless number in their face. And the second time they meet that person, that person is someone special, someone unique to them, someone they trust, someone they want to talk with, someone they want to know more about. They are someone with whom they can share their life with, someone who can help them get to know themselves better and also help them learn about themselves better. They become someone with whom the person will want to share their problems and their joys, their loves and their losses. They become someone with whom the person can discuss serious issues, like loss or illness or job loss or other serious issues. They become a place for people to go to relax and get their minds off the problem, and get some help and advice.
It is a wonderful thing the internet offers to help those with social anxiety. The power of the computer to connect again and again with those who understand the problems of that person and can offer advice and help. The power of the Internet to bring people together once again, who might not otherwise meet each other. I know that there are some people who still have no idea that the problem can be social anxiety, because they have not yet been connected with through the Internet. I am hoping that when people have been connected with, that they will come to realize that there is a problem, that the person may not be able to help them with their social anxiety, and not give them useless medication that is likely to be harmful. I know that the internet is an excellent way to find help. I know that I know I am someone who can help myself through the Internet and do not need to come to the people who live in the real world.
I know that through the Internet I can get help when I need it, without ever having to come face to face with those who could help me. I know that I know I know I know I know because it is true. I know that the Internet can make things easier for us. I know that the internet can give us those places where we can relax and get our minds off of the problem, without ever having to come face to face with those who can help us do it.
