Stepping into an overcrowded lift;
Waiting in line for tickets to your favourite show;
Running to board a packed subway at the peak rush hour;
These situations might be ordinary for you or anyone who does not have agoraphobia. But for an agoraphobic individual, these simple situations might be enough to develop severe anxiety, widespread panic, and complete disorientation. Supporting such an individual can be difficult, especially if you are not entirely sure about what agoraphobia truly is. As a complicated phobia with little public awareness, agoraphobia is not linked to one element only. While many wrongly assume it is the fear of open spaces, the disorder is much more complex.
For many fighting agoraphobia, the fear does not only include feelings of anxiety or nervousness. It is, in fact, the panic of being stuck in a situation which is difficult to escape. It can make one feel trapped and helpless with no way out. As a result, such individuals commonly avoid public places and may confine themselves to their homes, restricting them from enjoying life.
Fortunately, getting out of an agoraphobic lifestyle through therapy and medication is possible. Many rehabs are working to help such people contain their problems and consequent impacts on their health, well-being, and overall quality of life. These centres’ highly qualified psychiatrists, therapists, and psychologists offer comprehensive and tailored treatment programs. These programs aim to alleviate the symptoms and assist the patients in returning to the fulfilling lives they deserve.
