Thumbs down Fear of large empty rooms - January 12th 2016, 10:44 PM

hi (sorry if this is the wrong area)

So i recently found out i have a fear of large empty rooms. On a trip we went into a room where all the furniture had been removed and i was near to passing out. this sometimes happens in large open areas like fields but i thought nothing of it until now. now im aware of it i feel worse about it.

does anyone else have this or am i just crazy?
does this fear have a name at all?

Hey there,

You're not crazy! I'm wondering if this is similar to agoraphobia- fear of large, open spaces. Some of my panic attacks have happened outside, but I'm not sure if it's because of that. You can find out more about agoraphobia here.

Like all anxieties, it's helpful to do deep breathing exercises and consult a counsellor.

Take care

Hi there Chloe,

I agree with what's holly said about what might be going on and you're certainly not crazy. Do you have a psychiatrist or a counsellor? If so maybe it would be good to talk to them? If not maybe it would be a good idea to contact someone such as your GP to talk about what's going on and how you're feeling, to see whether they can refer you onto any help. But you're not crazy and a lot of people go through this too so don't feel alone.

Taking deep breathes in through your nose and out through your mouth can definitely help calm down your anxiety. So try doing do if you cagey put in any situation where you feel anxious.

Remember we're here for you so if you need any help, just ask!

Hopes and wishes,
