Anxiety can feel isolating and defeating. We may think everyone else has it all together and life all figured out. We may think that no one quite experiences something as enslaving as we do. We might even start to identity with our struggles, thinking we’ll never get better, never move toward increased freedom.

If that’s you, then you are precisely the reason Jodie Bailey felt compelled to share her story—because she’s been there. She was the woman who was afraid to leave her house, who felt alone in her struggle, and who desperately prayed for help. Now, standing on freedom’s side of her struggle with Agoraphobia, she has some insights and truths to share.
