Anthropophobia: The Fear of People or Society

Anthropophobia is the abnormal and persistent fear of people or society.  This causes people to change their whole lives to avoid people including work and school.

A phobia is a strong, persistent fear of situations, objects, activities or persons.  The main symptom is an excessive and unreasonable desire to avoid the feared subject. Other phobia symptoms include shortness of breath, irregular heartbeat, sweating, nausea, and an overall feeling of dread.  Phobias are the most common form of anxiety disorders.
