      You have educated me on the "name" of a disease. However, the collection of symptoms can most likely be found in the homeopathic materia medica which describes physical, mental, emotional levels of personalities.

      This is the way a homeopath will select a remedy for an individual.

    I hadn't, but now that I have I'd say that there's about a 90% chance that I am one. big_smile

    It sounds almost identical to what we would call 'Agoraphobia' in the UK.... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Agoraphobia

    Could it just be widely varying global theories and terminology?
