Fear of open spaces and crowds
November 17, 2010 3:39am CST
The other day I was watched an episode of 'Rookie Blue' and in this episode two of the rookies had to help a pregnant woman give birth because she didn't want to go to the hospital. She had specifically arranged for a home birthing because she has a disorder called "Agoraphobia", fear of open spaces and crowds. This is not the first time that I have watch some show or movie portraying someone with this specific fear. I can not help wondering how these people coupe with their fear and how one can help them. I know that someone who has "Agoraphobia" also feels depressed and are anxious. I know how difficult it is for clinical depressed people, my sister-in-law uffers from this condition. Do you know anyone who suffers from "Agoraphobia"? Do you talk about it? Can you help that sufferer?

I have heard about the fear on movies .But i have never saw or meet people who has "Agoraphobia".To my mind ,these people need more communication with their family and friends .Moreover ,phychologists may give them a hand to alleviat their horror .Anyway ,people ought to respect and care about them .
