I thought the depression forum would be appropriate to also talk about anxiety.
A little background for the past few years I have developed a panic disorder with agoraphobic symptoms.. To the point where I don't leave the house very often and since this has started I have gained 60 pounds. I have always been overweight but since I am hardly active at all now it's gotten my heaviest.
The panic is probably the more pressing issue but weight is always at the back of my mind and so much of my routine to avoid or comfort bad feelings is through eating. Another thing is I hear so many people say start of slowly go take a walk, but I literally have too much anxiety to go for a walk
Has anyone dealt with bad anxiety & food compulsion/addictions/overweight and get better with both
or just any thoughts or experience with your own anxiety issues?
