Many factors that may limit a persons quality of life.


Agoraphobia may lead to the patient always possessing a sense of helplessness, loneliness,isolation. This could furthermore develop into depression and feel as though they have lost control over themselves.
Over time the patient will become detached from others and will start to develop certain characteristics due to the lack of interaction and communication with others.
Theses characteristics may include:
·they will question whether their surround environment is real.
Or if their body is real.

However the long term effects depend on how the patient copes with the phobia and whether or not they recieve cognitive behavioural treatment and pyschotherapy.

Hope this helps.
