Agrophobia is a horrible feeling, because your at your house and you know you can't leave. If you want to see somebody, they have to come to your house, well at least thats the way it was for me.
Ok without medication, it CAN be overcome, but its not going to be easy. Ok im not therapist or anything but this is my educated guess of a good solution or at least a start.
Rearrange things in your home. Make it seem like a awhole new place. If you want go as extreme as painting, but I dont think you need to do that.
You need to tell a freind if you havent already. You should get them to take you somewhere close. Ask them if at ANY moment they would take you back home. First go somewhere close to start with. Then go somewhere farther. Make sure wherever you go you get out of the car and do something. (ex. if you go to a gas station get out and buy some gum or something) Then just keep going farther and farther.
Now you can do all of this with your friend or by yourself. Without meds its going to be harder, but you CAN do this. I dont know if what I said is a full treatment, but it sounds like at least a good start.
I hope you can try this, and I hope it helps.
