Hello everyone,

I was wondering if you know or have ever heard of someone that has been successful professionally despite panic and agoraphobia disorder? Like working in a big company with a high responsibility job?


Or simply heard of someone that completely won over these 2 disorders?

I am panic and agoraphobia disorder since 10 years (im 24) and I never gave up and will never give up no matter what. I am fighting everyday to achieve more and more but I just would like to know if it’s completely possible to erase those problems to 100%

Hi there my names Sam, ive also been struggling with agoraphobia for 10 years and im 25! Its good to see that your motivated to conquer this torture we go through, keep up the good work! To answer your question, yes! Anything is possible! You can google successful people that have these disorders, theres quite a few famous successful people with our problem. And ive heard of a lot of people curing this disorder, one of them being the author of the audio book about agoraphobia im listening to and a few blogs ive read online. I have high hopes for our kind and i wish you luck, let me know if you need anything at all

Im not sure if the famous people overcame it or not, i havent looked into their agoraphobia history quite yet, but seeing as how far they have come, im willing to say theyve found a way to manage it. Im becoming more and more optimistic about curing agoraphobia the more i learn and read about it and apply things i learn to my day to day life, the audio books i listen to help a lot by educating me about the disorder and telling me what options i have and what to do and so on, without having to leave the comfort amd security of my own room. I highly, highly reccomend you check them out
