I'm still learning about my condition. Are agoraphobia; phobias in general; panic attacks; severe claustrophobia; and needing a lot of alone time features of Bipolar Disorder? or of some other illness?

Thanks. :)

I am not an expert, but it sounds like you are coping with a lot of anxiety? what are your thoughts?

Hi @Autumnbutterfly and welcome to the Bipolar group. I will attach some links here that may help you.
On a personal note, I have Cyclothymia (or Bipolar III) and I don't experience agoraphobia, panic attacks or severe claustrophobia. I do need a lot of time alone, though. I agree with Aura that it does sound like you are coping with a lot of anxiety. I am glad you found us here. *hugs*
