I read an article in the Star Tribune today.  I thought I'd share it all with you as I found it sort of interesting.
 
I am an agorophobic.
 
However the technology hasn't quite caught up to me
 
 
But the University of Minnesota is apparently researching the therapy of Virtual Reality to help aid in curing anxiety disorders.
 
 
I am interested in this....
 
 
The idea is that you are in the 'virtual reality' (the thing placed over your eyes) and you have to face your phobic situations; often so amazing in virtual reality it seems real.  Many have had success with it.
 
 
I want to try it out.. just not sure how to contact the University and explain my situation.
 
 
It was rather interesting and I thought I'd share it with you all.

Sounds like exposure therapy without the REAL exposure...I dont think it would be any different than getting up and dealing with it in real life...

Essentially it would do the same thing. only difference is that you have the comfort of KNOWING you are not really in the situation which may in turn counter act the whole attempt.
