In its more serious form, it causes insurmountable problems in the lives of people who suffer from the disease, including fear of leaving their own homes, severe panic, anxiety, and depression. Lisa Capps and Elinor Ochs (1995) report that a survey in which more than 15,000 people from four major metropolitan areas indicated that four percent of those surveyed had experienced what could actually be diagnosed as agoraphobia (Capps and Ochs, p. 1). The results reflected an increase in the disorder of the previous year’s survey (Capps and Ochs, p. 1).

“Classic” accounts of agoraphobia go back as far as 1871 when the medical field began keeping meticulous records of phobias and other conditions and began arranging that documentation by diagnosis and symptoms. In 1895 Freud weighed in, separating common phobias, those things that are most commonly feared by people, from phobias of things or situations, like agoraphobia (Maj, Mario, Akistal, Hagoop, S., Lopez-Ibor, Juan Josu, and Okasha, Ahmed, 2004, p. 1). In 1947, the International Classification of Diseases (ICD) designated a separate and distinct category to phobias, including agoraphobia (Maj, Akistal, et al, p. 1). This essay explores what is known about the phobia, what can be done to overcome it, and the impact it has on the lives of people who struggle to overcome the disorder.

Agoraphobia is a condition, a mental disorder, which more commonly affects women than men (Capps and Ochs, p. 2). A personality “type” has actually been identified as being more susceptible than others, and even men who suffer from the condition fall into the personality “type.” The “type,” is described as submissive, shy, and dependent (Capps and Ochs, p. 2). Although Capps and Ochs report, there are other studies, too, that suggests there are no “personality type” links associated with the condition (p. 2). Mario Maj, Hagop S. Akistal, Juan Josu Lopez-Labor, and Ahmed Okasha write that normal fears are not necessarily “phobias,” and that phobias can exist alone, or manifest as a part of a greater problem, and inclusive of other symptoms (p. 2). Examples say the researchers, are transient darkness terrors, fear of animals, fears of disease that wax and wane with depression, or other expressions of mental illness
