Re: Agoraphobia & Safe Person

Hi Dave,
I'm not an agoraphobia sufferer but I do have acute anxiety which causes extreme concerns with my health. I am terrified to be alone so I too have a safe person, my husband. Unfortunately he works outside of the home so he leaves for 9 hours M-F and I'm pretty much alone until my 8 yr old son comes home from school at 3pm. This causes me great distress. Anyway, back to your problem. Have you heard of exposure therapy? You might want to look into it and look for a therapist or psychologist in your area who knows about and has had success with it. I have read good things about it!

If you just need to talk someone is always here.

Take Care,
Tori
