"All I wanted was one photo," Mae continued.
The reactions to the post have been extremely encouraging.
Many users talked about their own struggles with agoraphobia.
These are the everyday things that those of us not suffering from this disorder take for granted.
It's hard to even imagine the crippling fear that agoraphobes experience during events we view as mundane.
But, as Mae pointed out, the community of those struggling with panic attacks is extremely tight-knit and supportive.
"I have endured 3+ years of my body and mind revolting against my desire to be independent," said Mae.
“For once, I didn’t wait around to see if I would stay.”
Mae even made this surprising statement about the power of selfies.
It’s an interesting way to think about these photographs, which are often associated with narcissism.
