I've always felt very anxious in wide-open spaces or crowded events. I hate the lack of control, security and "nakedness" I feel. I hate not knowing where the bathroom is or having something comfortable to sit in.

I barely leave the house unless it's for school or work, which are enclosed and often secured locations. Driving is okay as long as it's not too sunny out and I have sunglasses. I really want to get a car with tinted windows. I absolutely hate shopping at grocery stores unless they're small and compact like dollar general or a convenience store.

I've been prescribed an antidepressant, but it doesn't really do much for anxiety. I also tried Buspar, and it helped for a short period before nothing. My mom/doctor are against benzos, but I really feel like I could benefit from them on occasion like before an interview or evalution and other high-stress circumstances.
