Exposure is what helped me when I was Agoraphobic, I haven't been agoraphobic for years.
I really got exposure today though, I was driving to town and realized I forgot to take my Klonopin, oops, panic time. But no panic, I did very well, I did grocery shopping, wally's world and a few other stores without panicking, I really enjoyed my little shopping spree and stayed out for about 4 hours and drove home.
I think your doing very well, 25 mins compared to 10 is a big accomplishment plus going to the mall even though you are afraid of a P/A just shows how hard you are trying, and how well you are doing. Feel proud of yourself, I do.
Take Care & Happy New Year
What dosen't kill me, will only make me stronger.
