Mods, if this isn't the right place for this, feel free to move. OK, here is my story... I am agoraphobic/socially phobic (does this make sense? lol) and have been for the past 4 or 5 years. At first I just used to avoid the occasional social event but in the last two years it's gotten to the point where I don't even leave my house at all, pretty much ever. The reason being, there is a physical feature of me that I am self-conscious about. I kept everything bottled up until a few months ago when I confided in somebody close to me. From there it has led to me going to seek professional help, and now I see a psychiatrist once every week. I feel though I just need one more little ounce of courage to finally speak about this one thing that's holding me back, but I worry that if I do, it might not get fixed. If this was to be fixed, I could start living my life again. There is slightly more to the story but as I'm new to the forum I'll keep it relatively short and talk about it more as I get to know people on here more. Thanks for reading.
