The Joys Of Agoraphobia


















This place is in my head and no matter where I run, it's always here, all around me. It's a big room and my voice echoes when I yell, and there are days when I think you couldn't make it to the other side if you tried.

Ah. The perfect words for today. Don't know how you do it, Iain.

This means a lot to me, being an agoraphobic.Honestly, there are just so few people who get how I feel.
I wish this didn't take so much from me.I wish it didn't hold me back from living my life to the fullest.

Like a large mountain in the distance, I hike and hike to get to it's other-side. Its size stays the same, never getting any bigger as I trudge forward. I know it's there, I know I can reach it. I'll keep moving...

Amazing blog, I've been following it for a while now. I find your words inspirational, and always fitting to what I feel or have felt. Thank you for sharing, and congratulations for such wonderful work! cheers.

are you an agoraphobic yourself?

A couple of things I want to do myself... wait for me, okay? Love.

And nowhere for the anger or the frustration or the fear to go despite the size. It's horrible, but knowing someone else gets it at least reminds me it's not just me.

I completely understand... you just described what I pretty much feel all the time.

Thank you for this, I needed it.

At least, thank goodness it's a big room and not a small room inside your head. Anyone else have those dreams of being smothered by a big white blanket or puff ball, or of everything suddenly seeming like a tiny speck a great distance away, when they were little?
...is it just me, or are there more anonymous posters these days?

This is exactly how I feel. Thanks for wording it precisely.

Interesting!
For me the echos are always there, sometimes they have a fast rhythm, sometimes they are loud, and some times I can detach myself-just a little-from them and let them do their things :)

Throw caution to the wind, tell our story to the world. What a funny story it is indeed. I've started writing music again (never quit), want me to write you a song?

Okay, it goes like this...

"I've made us wait too long, I was wrong wrong wrong.

Do dah, la da fa."

etc. etc.

#1 hit!

It IS romantic that I live in a small room on your hand...I love my small room :) sometimes hard to breathe though :(

And where is it that I can see you at my choosing? I choose right here right now. Too selfish?

Let me see you, the door is wide open. We have a lot of ground to cover, or maybe none at all.

This is me saying "Hello"

Some days it feels so crowded in my head and other days I could choreograph a whole dance for you, but I'm happy here.

You read my mind.

It is you waiting on me, not the other way around. I'll sit patiently until I see you again. I don't mean to sound so cocky/abrasive, but these things have a way of throwing my head into circles. Up and down, loopty loop.

I'll wait a lifetime for you, or even two.

Best wishes my love.

If you were really alone there would be no reason to be afraid. I've done everything I can think of. Let's put our heads (and hearts) together for the time being and find a way to compromise. Love you so. Are you waiting for me to jump first? I thought I was waiting for you. Almost finished with what? I'm hopelessly confused, yet oddly still delighted with anticipation. Can I borrow your lips?

I'm trying as hard as I can. Stop holding me back.
