Hi, I'm Taylor.
My mom suggested this website since my anxiety has gotten out of control. It seems I'm in the Agoraphobia category (as well as anxiety, and depression). I bought a book I hoped would help, Wish I Could Be There: Notes from a Phobic Life - by Allen Shawn. It's nice to know I'm not alone.
I hardly ever leave the house and hate it when I have to. The heat (I live in Texas) makes me extremely uncomfortable, and all the wasps flying around cause a lot of anxiety. I try not to look for them, but I always do, and I always find one. They chase me, so I look like an idiot running around and screaming. When I was 14 or 15 (can't remember), I was walking into my room (I had just gotten home), and started to change my shirt when I felt an uncomfortable sharp pain. Once I removed my shirt, and saw the wasp inside, I panicked. The appearance of the wasps scare me more than their actions.
I didn't mean to go into so much detail, but that's some basic stuff about me.
