Unhappy Agoraphobia? Help? - September 12th 2010, 08:52 AM

Okay, so every time I go outside, or even think about going outside. Or think about going to school; I begin to panic, feel sick, nervous, scared, and just plain upset. It started happening ever since March 3rd, 2010. I went to a rock concert [The Word Alive; We Came As Romans; Of Mice & Men; A Skylit Drive; Alesana.] and when We Came As Romans were playing, there was a wall of death [where the crowd splits in half and then run at each other and maul each other once the song picks up.] and my friend and I were sucked into it. I was knocked down and trampled on. Being jabbed with belts and stepped on by heavy boots and shoes. After I was finally picked up and made my way back to my friends, I couldn't breathe and I was crying insanely hard. I had a gash on my stomach and nearly puked in the cramped bathroom. The rest of the night was okay after about a half hour of freaking out. It got gradually worse and worse ever since then. I started dating my boyfriend, Josh on March 19th of 2010 and I got insanely attached to him. We've had our problems, but it seemed to get worse with my excessive need of him, and my excessive distaste for most everyone else around me.
I hate school-- I feel as if I'm being completely estranged from everyone else around me. I hate that I can't leave when I'm there, I can't just escape into my bedroom's comfort and safety.
I get insanely aggravated and have an unusual temper when I'm outside of the house. When I'm outside of the house--again mainly at school--I begin to shake and feel really nervous. It gets hard to breathe and I get scared. I get dizzy and my heart beats really hard throughout my whole entire body. I feel numb and I sweat. My face flushes and I almost start to cry. My stomach always hurts when I'm at school or thinking about having to go.

This began to be a major problem at the end of the last school year. So my mom, and I decided it'd be a good idea for me to go to online school. However, that hasn't quite panned out just yet. So, I have to begin public school at the same school as last year for a few weeks. And just thinking about it makes me feel all of the symptoms I've listed above. I'm horrified of going and I just want to not go...
I really need some help on ways that I can get over this...
Please help.

Feeling this way about public places after a concert like that, is extremely expected.
Talk to your mom to see if you can get to an online, or homeschooling system as soon as possible.
However while you're in school, and start to feel scared or nervous, is there a place that you can go to feel better? Maybe a teacher that you like, you could tell them this and ask if you can go to their room when you need to. Or maybe the guidance counselors office. The staff of your school are there to help, and if you have something go wrong, they'd rather know then let you suffer.
Hope this helped,

wanderer come home
you're not too far
lay down your hurt, lay down your heart
come as you are.
