I'm also afraid to get my cat in the carrier. I am just afraid. I fear things will be too difficult and I'll have a meltdown. I'll be so bad off, I won't be able to survive. I know it doesn't really make sense. But I've been working on this for a couple of years. And no one has been able to help me. One therapist encouraged my avoidance. She always said do what you feel comfortable doing. Now it's to the point where I can't function normally. Does anyone have some books they could suggest?

Thanks for sharing the title of that book. It sounds helpful. I wish you well.
