My boyfriend has Agoraphobia..he fears having a panic attack in public, he WILL NOT go anywhere alone, he does not like being in crowded places or around others that he does not know..

Are there any LD'ers who have this same Disease?
Do you know anyone that does?
How to you cope and deal with it?

I'm the same way but for different reasons

I'm liable to flip and might attack someone out of fear

They decided the best option was to just not let me go outside anymore

That's not right

I did write something

I wrote that I only leave my room to go to my psych's office

and that he's an a**
I don't have agoraphobia, but going outside is scary. emo I'm always afraid of having a panic attack or having something bad happen, but it never really does. My anxiety is terrible but overall I have a grip on it. It never got to the point where it kept me from actually leaving the house. I hate it though.

I'm nervous around people I don't know,
and people in large groups...
I don't think it's a phobia though..

I feel like I was developing it at one point. Going outside to face the wold was getting scarier everyday. Luckily I had a few good friends that helped me to snap out of it.
