Agoraphobia: This is a feeling that you're simply paralyzed with fear about leaving your own home. It is especially common in the anxiety disorders and this can be particularly burdensome when accompanied by depression or bipolar disorder. It is an anxiety disorder and not a true paranoid disorder. Please see your psychiatrist about having your medications adjusted and get into psychotherapy. If you are terribly afraid to leave the home have someone go with you to these appointments initially until you are able to do it on your own again. Remember there was a time that you used to be able to do this. That time will come back if you persist.Best wishes.
