Summary

In this section, the author explains to the audience why the woman in the window never goes outdoors. Anna describes that her fear for the outdoors is a psychological problem for which she has been medicated. She describes her condition as “Agoraphobia”- fear of being outside the house (open spaces). From her computer’s message platform, it is evident that she is part of a group of people who share the same fear. To show the severity of her condition, the author states that Anna has never been out of her house for about ten months. This long-term social withdrawal and her psychology expertise make Anna to be a good adviser to other members of the Agora site individuals struggling with the same fear. Her username, “thedoctorisin” makes her an approachable person for guiding those undergoing depression. The author appeals to the ethos of the audience in this section so that they become sympathetic of Anna’s condition.
