I have entered this site as the result of a search on how to help my love of three years. He never had agoraphobia before his child died five years ago. She had cerebral palsy and he was the primary caregiver. Now, it is a stretch for him to spend the night away from home. We just came back from a trip to the beach that was supposed to be two nights/three days and he made it for one night. He is embarressed to the point that he won't always tell me the truth. I try to understand and be understanding but I really don't know the details as all of this happened in his life before I knew him. He is finally coming clean about why we don't go out of town and now, I need to know how to be supportive. Please....any help. He is a great guy and I really would love to be able to help if I can. Any ideas, suggestions, insight?
Thank you so much. - jt
