Why is it, that people who work for support agencies have NO idea about agoraphobia and the way it affects people. The only people who know anything about it are those suffering it. I am sure not one person with agoraphobia wants to have it, and the affects it has on our lives. We know what it is and how hard it is to live with, but others who are supposed to support us, have no idea about it. My support worker (now EX) was quite sure she could CURE me within 3 months!!! Having had this problem for 9 years I find that somewhat whimsical. I even gave her the web site to look at, with all it's valuable information, but she still thinks if you are upright you are alright. She is now not available to take me to Dr appts as she says seeing she has taken me 3 times, I should now be able to catch the bus and do it on my own. Obviously they excluded any information on agoraphobia in the course she did. Any one else have this rubbish???
