Does anyone else have fear of going outside?

So I am having trouble with being stuck in my apartment due to my anxiety and fear, I wondered if anyone also had the same issue? I would like to move forward but I am getting little help at the moment and wondered if anyone had any advice? Some people are just like get up and go out but they don't realize how strong the fear and anxiety are. Not sure where to go from here, I have become quite isolated now and even due to some other circumstances fear my neighbors. I am feeling quite hopeless about the whole thing at this point and any help would be greatly appreciated!

I used to have agoraphobia, and I needed a comfort person with me in order to feel safe. I overcame the fear when my family got a dog. Dogs can be therapeutic. They also calm your nerves when you're petting or playing with them. I took my dog for short walks before I'd do a mile. I lost some weight. Now, I love going for walks, and I feel comfortable enough to walk by myself when going to catch the transit to school. If the fear seems too big to face, medications and/or therapy can help ease the discomfort of going out.
