    Oh, how funny that Agorophobia literaly translates to fear of the market place! For quite a while after 9/11 I would barely go out of the house. I was convinced that terrorists would bomb our local Wal-Mart Looking back now I think it is silly, but at the time it was powerful and scary. I live in a fairly small town in the mid-west of the US and we are so not a target. But it was so hard for me to go there for so long. It wansn't until I learned how to breathe better that going there was not so bad. I was hyperventalating and that made everything look so strange. It is better now. It just takes time.

    one thing that made my agoraphobia worse was the thought "what if i panic in front of other people that would be so humiliating" then my CBT told me she frequently puts on panic attacks while she was out with patients to show them what would happen, which was most people dont even notice. caring lot arent we? lol. it helped me a lot though.
