00:00:15[She nervously plays with her scarf as she breathes anxiously]


00:00:25OFF CAMERA Hello Mrs. Weidre. Are you ok? Do you want some water or something?


00:00:30MRS. WEIDRE I’m ok. I’m fine.


00:00:35OFF CAMERA I understand you wanted to see me today.


00:00:40[She breathes anxiously]


00:00:40MRS. WEIDRE I just really needed to sit and talk.


00:00:40OFF CAMERA Well, tell me what’s wrong, what are you feeling?


00:00:50MRS. WEIDRE I’m just so… so unsure. I’m tired of being stuck in my house. I don’t like it.


00:01:00OFF CAMERA Stuck in your house? Do you have difficultly leaving your house?


00:01:05MRS. WEIDRE Yes. All the time.


00:01:05OFF CAMERA When do you go out?


00:01:10MRS. WEIDRE …maybe, once or twice.


00:01:15OFF CAMERA A day?


00:01:15[She clutches her hands to her chest]


00:01:15MRS. WEIDRE A week. Tuesdays and Saturdays.


00:01:20OFF CAMERA Why Tuesday and Saturday?


00:01:30MRS. WEIDRE Because when my husband gets home, he can go with me.


00:01:35OFF CAMERA What do you do when you go out?


00:01:40MRS. WEIDRE I take walks.


00:01:40OFF CAMERA Where do you walk?


00:01:40MRS. WEIDRE I only go to the end of the block, and then I cross the street, and turn around, and I go back around the cul-de-sac. I’ll do that three times. [Losing breathe] No more, then I have to go back inside… I also go in my backyard. That’s usually okay.


00:02:15OFF CAMERA On the walks, why do you have to go back after three times? What happens?


00:02:20MRS. WEIDRE [She nervously looks around] I just can’t go any further.


00:02:25OFF CAMERA Is this a physical problem, knees or something?


00:02:30[She plays with her scarf]


00:02:30MRS. WEIDRE No. No. Well… maybe. I just can’t breathe if I’m out any longer.


00:02:40OFF CAMERA Oh, breathing?


00:02:40MRS. WEIDRE Yeah.


00:02:40OFF CAMERA What do you feel?


00:02:45MRS. WEIDRE [Her voice quivering] I’m just so frightened. Really, really scared. You don’t realize what it took for me to get here today. I really had to. I willed it. I closed my eyes and my husband turned the radio up all the way as he drove. And then he lead me into the building.


00:03:20OFF CAMERA Is there something that triggers this, anything in particular?


00:03:30MRS. WEIDRE I don’t like people. Maybe that’s it. I mean I can tolerate them. Ethan, the little boy next door, I’ll bake things for him and say hello. Sometimes, sometimes I watch him when his parents are gone. I mean I can be around people.

Maybe that’s not that’s not what I meant.


00:04:00OFF CAMERA Ok, can you walk me through what happens when you do leave the house?


00:04:05MRS. WEIDRE I get shortness of breathe, everything, the world just seems to close in on me, and everything gets feels really tight, the air in my body, my chest. I get dizzy. I don’t know what’s wrong… I could be sick. What is this?


00:04:30OFF CAMERA There can be many different causes for this. What is it that frightens you?


00:04:40MRS. WEIDRE [She’s short of breathe] Death. I’m afraid to die.


00:04:45OFF CAMERA You’re afraid you might die?


00:04:50MRS. WEIDRE Yes. Among other things but that’s what pops into my head.


00:04:55OFF CAMERA Is there other stuff?




00:05:05MRS. WEIDRE Cars go to fast. And there’s murders and rapes that I see on the news. And flashfloods. I just think its close, its safer to stay close to home.


00:05:15OFF CAMERA How long have you had this fear?


00:05:20MRS. WEIDRE I don’t really know.


00:05:20OFF CAMERA Do you know when it all started?


00:05:25MRS. WEIDRE I’m not sure.


00:05:30OFF CAMERA Do you know what started it?


00:05:30MRS. WEIDRE No.


00:05:35OFF CAMERA When was the last time you really ventured out for any length of time?


00:05:40MRS. WEIDRE Fifteen years.


00:05:45[She nervously shifts in her chair]


00:05:45OFF CAMERA That long. Is this the farthest you’ve been in fifteen years? What happened fifteen years ago?


00:06:00MRS. WEIDRE I don’t really know.


00:06:05OFF CAMERA There is nothing that happened to you personally that could have made you afraid of dying?


00:06:10MRS. WEIDRE I always was. My mother died the year before that. But it happened little by little. First it was planes. And then I couldn’t drive on the freeway, then I couldn’t drive at all, then errands, then it was going out… and soon… here I am.


00:06:40OFF CAMERA It must have taken you extraordinary courage to come here today. What finally brought you to see me?


00:06:50MRS. WEIDRE My grandson was born. But I couldn’t go and see him. I still haven’t seen him. My daughter gave birth last week and she’s not going to bring him to see me for several months and I don’t want to wait that long.


00:07:10OFF CAMERA You miss out.


00:07:15MRS. WEIDRE Yes! Of course I do! My grandson is a thousand miles away and I can’t leave the God damned house.
