I've had severe agoraphobia for a while now. I also have had severe social setbacks and of course anxiety. It's hard to see exactly where I went wrong during the crucial years of high school when I started smoking pot up until now. I just want to know why marijuana cause such panic and anxiety in me. Is it because I feel I wont act normal in front of people? Whats the difference between a person who smokes and enjoys being outside and can handle it and me? How can the other person handle it so effectively? Maybe pot doesn't make me dumber but it can enhance my perceptions but why do I have to be afraid that it shows?
