Default Agoraphobia...PTSD??

I barely leave my room, let alone my house. Everytime I go out, all of my symptoms exacerbate by x10. I will feel paranoid, anxious, extremely depressed, and feeling that there is danger and threats left and right, I get mood swings because when I feel threatened by the people around me, like they are going to do something to me, I feel I have to defend myself and I feel so much aggression, but I know better than to act on it. My thoughts race, and I get intrusive, obsessive thoughts that follow me all the way home. When I get home I feel like I am going to snap, i feel like self harming, or drinking. I wonder it is PTSD or agoraphobia or whatever. I am in therapy and see a psychiatrist but I am still very deep in this currently.

Anxiety is a bitch that I deal with too. I was looking online for some group therapy in my area. They're some cheap sessions don't require insurance. I did 10 sessions back in 2013 and it was good exposure. I had issues talking in front of people so I got to deal with that. Just throwing out another option.

Mood tracking and thought tracking were good for me. I went over the worries at the end of the day and if I was being irrational, it made it easier for me to face my fears in the future. When I got anxious for the same reasons, I was able to remind myself that my fears did not make sense.

I think all of life is coping with pain. I've never had anyone logically refute that. Life is managed, not cured.

Just wanted to add that I see nothing wrong with you staying in the house all day. My life is much happier now that I don't interact and stay away. Looking for happiness in the masses is totally impossible and just causes some excitement maybe, probably boredom, and often suffering.
