A condition related to agoraphobia but has to do with severe paranoia and not so much depression.
The elderly woman who lived across the street only appears when she gets her mail. She doesn't even go out to eat, her food is delivered to her through the crack in the door. I think her name was Olivia. She was once a Broadway Dancer. But she has become so shutterbound that she has probably lost her own name. And all her memories evade her and she has even lost her own family. What could she fear so much?
