I was officially diagnosed as agoraphobic finally. I am now at the point where I cannot leave the house without someone with me. I haven't been anywhere unaccompanied in more than a year.
It's nice in some ways because I can get my crafting done (and my skill has become prodigious) but in others, quite honestly the majority of the time, it's a real pain. I lost two volunteer positions, I cannot work, and I am slowly gaining weight where before I used to go as far as Bethesda (from Baltimore) for medical studies, thus causing me to lose weight.
I really want to beat this and I have been trying my best to do so. I am enrolled in a program that's designed to get me out of the house, even if aided, more than I have been getting out.
