by: Bertil Hjert
Agoraphobia has been considered a serious condition by many, across the globe. The condition has also been referred to as one of the most depressing and restricting conditions associated with a problem of panic attack.
One of the major problems with this condition is that it has been misinterpreted as a fear of open places. However, the truth is that it is a fear associated to loss of control. The patient tends to panic as soon as they exit a place of security and control. The sufferers consider home as this place.
When treated from an early stage, Agoraphobia can be cured easily. However, since a lot of people are unable to recognize the symptoms, they reach a stage where the condition becomes worse and they tend to fear whether or not cure is possible.
Many people with Agoraphobia are also under a notion that since they have been living with the condition for so long, it is not possible for them to get a cure. It is quite common for people with this condition to think in this manner as they believe that they suffer from one of the worst cases and no amount of cure or treatment can bring recovery for them.
For most sufferers, Agoraphobia is like a living hell. They give up all hope due to the intensity of the symptoms they experience. They also feel that people with less severe symptoms are more likely to recover and enjoy a normal life.
