Our expert says:
Social phobia is called agoraphobia and a direct translation is "fear of the market place" This means that you are literally to sceared to go out of your house. It sound if you have symptoms of this phobia and you should address it immediately.
It is a phobia that leads into a panick attack and is deffinitely treatable. You will need to learn how to adjust in a place where there are people. I would suggest that you go and see a psychologist that specialize in behavioural change or a hypnotherapist.
Don't worry, you can learn how to change your behaviour through cognitive restructuring.
