Hard on myself

Today, I got to do tasks for the first time.  Going into the drugstore all by myself, enjoying the shopping experience, making a purchase and then returning to the car was a monumental task for me.  It makes me feel that independence may be possible.
To think I enjoyed the music while perusing the card aisle without a panic attack.  I usually go into a store, making a mad dash to make my purchases, and run back to the car in a hurry.  Once in the car, I take a deep breath in relief when the task is completed.  This cycle of events didn't happen today.  Yay for small victories!
God is so good, and I don't thank him near enough!
God Bless,


  1. Happy for you R.. I had that same sort of experience a few weeks ago for the first time in 5 years.. very grateful in so many ways its difficult to put into words.

  2. This is good... keep building on today... slowly :)

  3. One of my best friends suffered from panic attacks, it always good to see people on the road to recovery and taking the time to slowly build up again. Best wishes to you.

  5. So happy for you!
    Fun little fact: when my mom would lose track of me in the grocery store, she would either find me reading the greeting cards or smelling the coffee bean dispensers. My favorite store was the one where they were in the same aisle!
