Hi painter

A huge warm welcome to nmp.

You'll get loads of advice and support here and make some lovely friends along the way.

Hi there,

I would phone them, tell them you're agraphobic and ask if the meeting can be conducted in your home. Maybe you could have someone there with you as well like a close friend or relative?

Good Luck.

Hope all goes well for you.
I have not been out the house alone for years and can not really go far even with someone.
I am dreading this happening to me as well
