Waking up after being confined to onesself and discovering a new person.

Getting Your Life Back

Recently, a cousin of mine came full circle with her life. For 50 of her 70 plus years of life she has been an introvert to the Max. She had this doctor who treated her for this and some other mental illness. Day after day she took her meds and no improvement was seen. She was such an introvert that she did not attend her parents funerals. She talked very little, to anyone, but once in a while she talked to me.  One day recently herDoctor who had been treating her since the 60's died. Her sisters found a new Doctor for her. He took her off of all the meds she was taking and put her on some other drugs. It was like night and day. Somebody turned the switch on. Needless to say that introvert does not exist anymore. She gets out of the house and goes shopping. She has started knitting again (selling her projects). Talking to strangers and loving life. To see her face is, like looking into a childs inocent face. How great it is to see this miracle in action. I talked about prayer in my book, saying "If it takes a day, a week, a month, a year, etc. What does it matter if the prayer is answered ?"  Sometimes we are not ready to receive a gift, then we are prepared, then your prayer is answered.

From your brief description, what's your cousin had appears to be Agouraphobia. The condition runs in my family and my sister and niece both experienced it. My sister recovered after many misdiagnoses and treatments by taking a drug after 30 years. My niece recovered much more quickly after about five years. The condition appears to be genetic and is treatable.

I'm glad your cousin is better, but feel that she has lost much of her life because of poor medical care.
