I can't give you any medical or psychological reasons for my reaction to the panic attacks from agoraphobia I had recent;y, all I can say is that whatever happened has kept me on edge since the event. I can't relax or sleep.
Doctors say the mind is affected after three days without sleep, mine is already; it's as if all the roads to my calm places have been cut off.
I can cope with my condition if I can keep moving, it becomes unbearable when I need to stay in one place, or if the exits are blocked.
After years of considering how my insomnia started, I decided it started back in the mid-1970's when I would stay up to listen to the cricket commentaries from Australia.
