My mother is agoraphobic and it's severe. All I can offer is hugs and support. Just an idea ... You could of course with therapy if you do go out ... Even a block away if you have a smart phone. Get ready to post everything you felt. And be surprised how much support you will get here everyone is wonderful. Just a thought but I am a writer I write down ( depression ) all those unpleasant things we are afraid to say. It helps me. And the other forums ( fibromyalgia ) have really helped me see that I really am not the only one on the planet to have those thoughts.in fact some are verbatim to what I was thinking. You will find a lot of support here.
