Misconception: Agoraphobia is the fear of leaving the house.

Reality: Agoraphobia is the fear of being unable to escape and the fear of panicking without being safe.

Misconception: People with Agoraphobia never, ever leave the house.

Reality: Many people with Agoraphobia never leave their homes, but many people can leave their homes as long as they are in places they know, take familiar routes, and always know where the exit is and how they can get home again. Similarly, many people can leave their homes as long as they are with someone who makes them feel safe.

I didn’t choose to be this way. So, please don’t make me feel like I have.
  • Anxiety:They're talking about you! They definitely are! They hate you! You're so annoying!
  • Depression:They don't care about you, and you're overthinking it. You're not important. No one wants you around.
