Agoraphobi defines Agoraphobia  as "abnormal fear of being in crowds, public places, or open areas,sometimes accompanied by anxiety attacks." It also goes on to say "a pathological fear of being in public places, often resulting in the sufferer becoming housebound." 

  • I really dislike leaving the house 
  • despise being in a large group, especially when most if not all are strangers
  • I have this really odd thing where I can't stand in a walk way or feel like I am in the way of others.
  • I often talk myself out of leaving the house, even if the event I am leaving for sounds fun or is something that I REALLY need to get done, like grocery shopping.
  • Parties usually stress me out and I try and melt into a wall so I am not noticed
  • Being the center of attention makes me blush
  • Strangers are scary
I think I feel comfortable enough diagnosing myself with with agoraphobia. Will someone please come kidnap me and make me social and all that normal stuff. Thank you!

I would come kidnap you, but I think I suffer from it too.

I've been diagnosed with it.. but I don't know if I have it or not. I want to be more social and active too. I think I worry too much about what I think other people think about me. See if I KNEW what they were thinking I could deal with it either way.. but the not knowing one way or the other makes me a big anxious. :P
