  1. Hi there, I've had agoraphobia for the last 15 years. It was quite okay until around January 2017. Now it is quite bad. I'm really interested in general topics now as it seems to me that everyone (well obviously not everyone) is concerned about their problems. Does anyone have a vague idea that from an analytical point of view what the underlying reason for agoraphobia and social phobia is? In Hungary I talked to a very nice therapist (only email) and he said that both have to do with separation anxiety stemming from childhood. I've found a few interesting websites: https://www.sciencedirect.com/topics/neuroscience/agoraphobia https://www.sciencedirect.com/topics/neuroscience/social-anxiety-disorder https://www.researchgate.net/publication/313494606_Comparison_of_the_DSM-5_and_ICD-10_panic_and_other_anxiety_disorders https://jamanetwork.com/journals/jamapsychiatry/article-abstract/497537?redirect=true

    I love Pulp Fiction. It's simply great. I will now watch Death Proof. Very exicted about it. I live in Hungary. Yes, we used to have great snow here, but not any more. But still it's cold and yesterday the wind was really strong. I hate wind. It makes me nervous. I love fog, rain, snow. So if you can go to the beach, I guess it's quite good. I do not go to swimming pools any more.

    Hi Julia! I take meds and now (after about 3 and a half years) it seems to me that the latest meds help me quite a lot. I think my anxiety is getting better. Yes, I started therapy back in 2006 and since then I've had about 6 therapists... Now I'm looking for a new therapist. Wow, I'm so proud and envious that you could go to the beach! Here it's winter and very cold. Just to make sure, which day were you at the beach? Sunday? My Sunday was quite okay, thanks. I often watch films and I love them. Now I watched Kill Bill 1 and 2. It was quite good.

    Hi Julia! How long have you been agoraphobic? I've been agoraphobic for 13 or 14 years now. Quite well until January 2017. Do you go to therapy? Do you take any meds? How did it go with the shopping?

    Let's hope so. Thanks.

    Hi there. What's up with you?
  12. Is there anybody here?

    Well, I cannot un-register, so I thought I might as well talk to... seemingly nobody. Funny thing. Where are agoraphobiacs supposed to be? Out in the street, in the woods? Nope. At home. Home, sweet home. Most probably with internet connection. If they have a hard time going out, they could meet people virtually. But nobody's here. (Excuse my English, I live in Central Europe and my native language is Finno-Ugric.)
  13. Stuck at home

    I'm sorry you feel unwell both physically and psychologically. Are you at home on your own?
