New here and hoping to make friends
#1
Hello All,

I'm a 47 female looking to find some interaction with people who can understand what it's like to suffer from problems that are not shared by the majority of the population.

I am agoraphobic, with a gradually worsening situation in the past 10 or so years.

I manage... with help. 

I support myself financially by working from home.

I don't know how many of you experience sensory overload on a regular basis. I think that is my most difficult problem.

I'm not too good socially. Although I have worked with people, I do not seem to be able to acquire close friends (except one) which is probably due to my being odd (can't think of another word) but also due to a reluctance of mine which I cannot really explain.

When I feel better, I love reading, art, photography (especially), handcrafts. Also generally discussing life.

I will be happy to make some connections. I would love to have a close friendship connection.

That's it...

All the best from me.

You said a lot there, Espiritis. I can't even really imagine what it's like living with agoraphobia but good on you for supporting yourself financially. And good on you for having help......to manage.
I guess we've made some connection here. I'm around on this forum pretty regularly. Our paths will cross again I hope.
What we think we become.

I'm sorry to hear of what you're going through, Esperitis.

While I may not be able to fully relate, I do hope that there are people you can connect with on here. Good luck, and welcome to the forum. (:

Hey, Esperitis. I suffer with agoraphobia as well. Was doing really well a year, and two years ago (got on a plane to visit my family out of state!). Lately it's been creeping back in along with other fears, etc... Sorry to hear you struggle with fear in this way. It can be terrifying, painful, and unpleasant...
