Fixing claustrophobia on my own

I have realized that it's not a mental or emotional issue or a condition, claustrophobia is actually lack of trust, it is the fear that we might not be heard, it is the loneliness. It's not the fear of dying its the fear of dying without anyone noticing or helping. It feels like what if I cry and cry for help but no body would be there to listen. It's the fear of being alone and not capable, not being independent.
So if you are claustrophobic please look into it from this view point and you will be amazed at it. May be you ll be able to find a solution for your self. #Claustrophobia #Thanatophobia #CTS #PCOS

how to be emotionally strong?

Since I have realized I become depressed anxious etc I feel like even a distressing movie or story make me afraid to my core. I don't want to hear any bad news, news including any factors which I feel distressing, I have 2 kids one 9 years old son and other 2 months old daughter. I can't hear anything happening to children or parents dying or kids hungry or lost. I am extremely afraid of poverty that how to fulfill kids needs. When I see my old parents I'm afraid of old age with associated illnesses. If I have happiness I have tears in my eyes, if see or hear something bad I start crying. I can't control my emotions. Any tips? #Anxiety #Thanatophobia #PanicAttacks #Claustrophobia #breathlessness #Depression #lackofconfidence


Can avoiding thoughts is a remedy to get rid of negative fearful thoughts?

Yesterday I had bad feelings, my mind made up scary scenario and I got panicky. Today I m afraid that I might have same issue again. So I'm avoiding certain thoughts, am I doing right? Or should I think about them. #Depression #Anxiety #PanicAttacks #breathlessness #lackofconfidence #Claustrophobia #Thanatophobia #CarpalTunnelSyndrome

lack of sleep and anxiety

Can lack of sleep cause claustrophobia and anxiety? I cudnt sleep last night because of my 2 months old daughter and today I suddenly started feeling bad thoughts. Can they be related? #Anxiety #Thanatophobia #PanicAttacks #Claustrophobia #breathlessness #Depression #lackofconfidence


Sudden negative and bad thoughts

It's just me or anyone else start having bad thoughts like a dream you are thinking with open eyes and conscious mind. We have a really small washroom with our dining room and I seldom use it. I feel claustrophobic some times. Today I had to use it and I suddenly started feeling what if I'm locked in it my 9 yrs old can't help and what if he goes out for help and don't take keys with him to come back leaving my 2 months old daughter in the bedroom. This thought made me feel nauseated and I started shaking. I know for this or any similar situation God forbade I can't do anything but still I am too afraid. Please advise. I need help now. #Depression #Anxiety #PanicAttacks #breathlessness #lackofconfidence #Claustrophobia #Thanatophobia #CarpalTunnelSyndrome


phases of phobias

Do phobias have phases, like last December I was unable to control my phobia or fear of future and depression. But for past few days I'm unable to feel afraid. Even if I think about such things. But have lots of chores to do and unable to finish them because of a new born. Days end but work is still there. Is it because I'm busy and if I ll be free for some time again I'll start feeling depression, anxiety and phobias? #Anxiety #Thanatophobia #PanicAttacks #Claustrophobia #breathlessness #Depression #lackofconfidence #Claustrophobia#Thanatophobia
