Part of my issue with Agoraphobia is my fear of cars. I was in a car when it caught on fire. Ever since then, I felt very uncomfortable being in them. This was a good 6 years ago. I am ashamed to admit it really. The thought of being in a car terrifies me. Even with my panic issues, I was still able to be in a car but after that fire... It just... by lilly354

I have been in a loop with Agoraphobia since I was 22. Sometimes it is mild... Other times it is severe. The longest I went without leaving my house was over a year. I would go outside, check the mail, be okay in the yard... But I didn't leave the house. This was recent. I finally broke out and got in a car and drove with my mother in law to get... by lilly354

I have always been high anxiety and hated being social but I managed it. I got things done regardless of my feelings. Years ago I got my first panic attack. Last year about this time I had a major attack doing something that I loved. I loved going for long walks at 2a.m. Something about the night time, the crickets, the well lit neighborhood... by SelfHater

So constantly throughout the day i have to hold my shirt away from my neck, so its like i am living my life with one hand. I can take it away for a while if im not really thinking but the second i remember it like completely freaks me out... by sareybarey919

Hey all I will make this short for you. First I will tell you a bit about myself. I am a 21 years old woman. Stayed at home from 15 to 19 ish. My crazy childhood and an abusive mother made me lose my mind a bit. At 20 I decided to change myself because I was beyond disgusted. I had no high school diploma, no work experience, no friends...I was... by MissCamilla

Just recently I've been diagnosed with social phobia, and I've found a new therapist that I'll be seeing tomorrow. Here's to hoping someone will respond to this in the meantime. While it appears that agoraphobia is very distinct from social anxiety disorder (and then throwing a possible generalized anxiety disorder into the mix really screws... by HexNoir

Right, I'm on a bit of a rant... I have been agoraphobic for many years (although I can sometimes go out if accompanied) and over time have alienated everyone I know due to them not being there for me. I have absolutely no-one!! Over the years I have also developed a near-phobia of phones, I only get visits from workmen who have to do necessary... by scarecrow66

I was just curious...those of us who may be severe enough that we cannot even hold a job outside the does everyone financially get by? I know quite a few write they can get to work and that's it and back home again, but I know many cannot hold a job. I am one of them. What does everyone do to get by when they cannot hold an outside... by kismet

I am new to any forum, but desperate for help. I have been agoraphobic for many years but am able to go out if accompanied. There's a big problem with that though as I have alienated everyone who knows me because they have no understanding of my illnesses and act like they don't care. Over the years I have also developed a fear of using a phone... by scarecrow66

So I've been suffering with agoraphobia for quite some time. At the moment I am highly restricted in where I can go. I go for walks everyday but all within a somewhat safe distance and retreat as soon as the usual symptoms kick in. I cant go shopping or attend family occasions, or even go to into the city centre. I've had counselling which was... by rebelheart

I used to have a "life", if I can claim that much... I'm not sure. But I left the house, I drove a car to many places, I had a job that I went to, I think I had friends, I had (at least) one family member... But now that all seems so far away. For the past 5 years now, I've been hiding because of things that happened over 15 years ago! Things... by Sway

I didn't realize I had this until I started doing more research on it. I always thought it was normal that I had almost zero interest going outside. It's gotten worse over the past few years. I'm usually okay going outside if I know where I'm going. This means I only go to a couple of places such as my job, school, or grocery store. I refuse to go... by TBH_ZU

Hi guys, I suffered from Agoraphobia for 11 years, it's the usual story, no support, extreme isolation and a near constant battle between depression and massive anxiety. In Feb this year, I managed to beat the damn thing at last, I made a couple of videos the first two are just after the event the very next day I managed to beat it. The third... by T420

I'm not sure if this really counts as agoraphobia, but I read one definition that said "fear of leaving safe place". I am able to leave my room to go to classes, and also to use the bathroom and showers down the hall. Yesterday I was even brave enough to go to the bookstore and pick up my textbook rentals. When I arrived on campus on Thursday,... by rfacklam

I've been struggling with Agoraphobia for a long time now and don't know what to do. It has affected my ability to get into relationships. I'm not the type of person to do casual hookups, or get with someone just to be in a relationship. I'm only 19 and don't expect a relationship I get into now to last forever, but I do want to see some... by Fox_W_Mulder

I won't bore you with my sob story, but I've had severe agoraphobia for the majority of my teens. Now, at almost 20, I have literally nothing - No friends, family, job, education, home or security. At a some points, I couldn't even leave the room I was in for months on end due to the severe agoraphobia. I'm afraid of the rest of my life being... by wild

I've had social anxiety since I can remember. By the time I got to middle school, I was so resistant to going in because of the other kids that I was homeschooled for 3 years. High school I had to go back to public, which I managed through by sticking mostly to myself. A few teachers thought something was up with me because I'd go the whole... by RainyDay

Hello, I'm new here, just registered. A long time (I guess 15 years) ago I accidently stumbled upon a specific documentary following the lives of some people struggling with agoraphobia and a therapist who was dedicated to help them. I only saw half of it and don't remember all the details but central was a guy who was terrified of leaving his... by Mr_Craft

Hi. I just want to rant. I have had SAD for a few years now. I believe that it is now Agoraphobia because I can't leave my house without freaking out. I have tried to conquer my fear by gradually going further and further but, it doesn't help. I am almost 20 and haven't left my house since I graduated. I have lost all my friends because I... by ashmay19
