Wink Re: Anyone else have agoraphobia?

I have the whole "driving myself" thing too....it's a control issue, just in case I need to go. I can go with others sometimes if I must.....but I don't feel good about it, that's for sure.

My agoraphobia is mild, I would say, relative to others. I don't like flying....but not for the usual reason people don't like it....it's that it's a tiny little self-contained vessel and I can't go anywhere if I need to! I'll fly....but I'm anxious always before I do. Speaking to crowds makes me nervous because I can't escape if I need to....but you'd never know it! I get anxious but somehow I always get through it! And have had comments from many that I must do it professionally as I somehow appear very comfortable doing it. Don't ask me how!
