It’s not unusual to worry sometimes. But when your fears keep you from getting out into the world, and you avoid places because you think you’ll feel trapped and not be able to get help, you may have agoraphobia.
With agoraphobia, you might worry when you are in:
Public transportation (buses, trains, ships, or planes)
Large, open spaces (parking lots, bridges)
Closed-in spaces (stores, movie theaters)
Crowds or standing in line
Being outside your home alone
You may be willing...
