I wanna work from home. I think I'm becoming agoraphobic.

@blusterygay its a curse id wish on no one.

Find a friend and go for a walk, challenge the onset. Worked for me when it first started setting in years ago, and its one of the best ways to kick me out of bad pit

@eclectic It's so strange because I love exploring (forests and beaches at least). I think I just prefer to be in control of my surroundings and maintain a sense of familiarity in certain settings. Walking is a great suggestion though! I've considered it as a means of exercise.

@blusterygay urban environments are much more difficult for most agoraphobic people. Too many people and uncontrollable variables for sure.

As hard as it is, exposure therapy can be incredibly useful.
