Hello, I am a social work masters student at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond. I am taking a class on mental, emotional, behavior disorders and have chosen to focus on agoraphobia in particular. I struggled with agoraphobic symptoms during my undergraduate years and have been living with social anxiety my whole life. In studying this unique disorder, I would love the opportunity to hear from you, particularly if you have suffered or are currently suffering from agoraphobia. I am open to all experiences and would be honored to hear your story and how you have sought to find meaning and healing through enduring a disorder that often carries much hopelessness. If you would be willing to talk to me, I a open to communicating via whatever method you are most comfortable with, whether phone, email, or chat. If you would feel more authentic communicating your experience through another means, such as a poem, journal entry, or other ways you have sought to make sense of your experience, I would be honored to receive these as well. I look forward to hearing your story. Thank you :) Kristen
