I actually don't remember which therapist I was seeing when I made that post (there have been so many), but honestly it went under the radar until I got further testing. I'm glad I know it's agoraphobia (if I want to be optimistic about it), but it's almost like a new demon aside from 50 other demons in my life (I'm sure a lot of us can relate, or maybe I'm just that bad off).
The crossover of SAD / GAD / PD is kind of a bad twist in someone's life, but it's not so weird to find out exactly why you've lived in isolation all your life. I wish this forum had a bigger agoraphobia section, and the internet seems to have a very small grasp on agoraphobia / PD itself, but it's good to know that there are a few of us here to share wisdom and stuff.
