Becca, who describes the video as a “modern day love story,” elaborated further in the comments, explaining that she is suffering from “biblical night terrors and severe panic” after being physically abused for two years, noting that “healing trauma is the hardest part”.

One empath noted that “a little love and appreciation goes too far either way,” while another wrote that she “wouldn’t wish fear on anyone.”
Others shared how the fear had impacted her life, with one woman writing, “I was trapped on the freeway for 9 hours during an ice storm over 8 years ago and I still have panic attacks when I leave my house at times.”
According to a post published by the online health resource health lineAgoraphobia can be defined as “a type of anxiety disorder that causes people to avoid places and situations that might make them feel trapped, helpless, panicked, embarrassed, or anxious.”
This post continues: “People with agoraphobia often experience panic attack symptoms, such as rapid heartbeat and nausea, when they are in a stressful situation. They can also experience these symptoms before they even get into the situation they fear.”
Sometimes cases can be so severe that those who suffer “avoid everyday activities like going to the bank or grocery store and stay in their homes for most of the day.”
