Today I’m dedicating my post to a very dear friend of mine. She’s been battling Agoraphobia for almost 9 years now. I myself have gotten her out and about in the past but only went a few blocks from her house before having to return…still great steps for her. Recently she’s found a doctor that is helping her see there is hope.
On August 4,2012 her husband took her to her 1st garage sale in 9 years, she was a couple of miles away from home…they hit several that day. It was great to see her out and about.
On August 18,2012 they took her 1 1/2 year old grand daughter to the park to feed the ducks. She even braved going into a small store along the way…decided that she’s not ready for that yet…but still tried.
She is sharing her story with the public via a local TV station and a newspaper that approached her. It is in hopes she can help others see that they aren’t alone. I am so very proud of my friend and can’t wait to see her pull into my driveway one day for a visit. She has shown me that with determination you can see your dreams come true.
