You poor darling, you have my utmost empathy. I have been living with agoraphobia for about four years - I have had great therapy so I can live well with it even though it isn't gone, and you are very very welcome to talk to me anytime. The really bad stages where it seems to be worsening are hell. But you can, and will beat it with the right help.

just want you all to know you're not alone. i have figured out what the trigger was for this for me and why it got so much worse. i am beginning to have hope but it's hard, hard, hard. seems like i eat less the days i go out (like i have to be punished for being out) and i'm anorexic so it's kind of a double whammy but so far i've met my once a week out goal this year and i'm very pleased about that.
less than two years ago i could absolutely end up on the floor to reach out and get my mail so this is better. i know there are a couple of groups but i was worried that they would push people to get out more or tell people that being in all the time was okay. i wanted a grey area so i shared my goals with my T three weeks after i started (didn't want to jinx it! lol) and am doing alright.
did i mention this is hard? yeah. i really empathize. i send you hope and courage.
Thank you for replying. Congratulations to you on achieving your goals :)/>, it does sound like you are going through so much. Your post has helped me a lot, maybe I could start setting some goals.
