Hi guys,

So I suffer from agoraphobia pretty badly. I'm scared of leaving the house alone for fear of being attacked and for fear of getting so conscious of myself with DP that I suddenly have no safe zone to run to when/if I can't cope. I'm also unemployed, and staying at home day in, day out is really getting tedious. I just want to be freed from the grip of my own fear! I have no routines, nothing to do out of the house, so I am hoping that some people who don't have agoraphobia can give me some ideas of what to do to give me a reason to go out. I want to get out daily but I don't have much money so I can't spend all that time shopping, going to the cinema or eating out for instance. I would really appreciate suggestions so i can comprise a list of free outdoor activities that I can do, just to get me out alone and used to things a few times a week!

Thanks everyone!

I've been there got the T shirt, it was hell...the DP/DR was worse but the anxiety was so frustrating and life restricting, it also slows down recovery from DP/DR. However unlike DP/DR anxiety/phobias are much better understood. Have you seen the doctor? too scared to go?

If your that bad drop me a PM, I'm in the UK too.

Keep your chin up.

Did you get over agoraphobia?
100% and pretty quickly although to be totally anxiety/med free was about a year. However I was functioning to over 90% fairly quickly. If you want some specific advice, again feel free to PM.

PS I glad your doing better, keep going you can do it.
