If you suffer from agoraphobia, just leaving the house to go to an office is extremely difficult. It is often diagnosed after a series of panic attacks and moments of irrational and intense fear. It can be brought about by traumatic, unresolved experiences or genetic factors. Generally speaking people with agoraphobia experience so much distress in social settings, at work or at school that they begin to avoid leaving the house at all. Learn more about agoraphobia here.
