Ask an Agoraphobic
"AGORAPHOBIA: extreme or irrational fear of crowded spaces or enclosed public places."
It means, basically, I don't like leaving my "safe place" which is my home. I only go out when needed (example: grocery shopping), I do not go to parties, ride the public bus, or do anything that has to do with large groups of people.
I have, but I prefer not to because I panic. I have panic attacks, asthma attacks, I gag until I eventually vomit, I sweat profusely, I turn red and get really hot, etc.
My symptoms started before 2007, but that's when I was finally able to force myself out of the house to go to a therapist and get diagnosed.
Ask me questions if you have any. I will try to answer them all.
