Hi Anon

Thanks for your post and for reaching out to EmpowHER!

You may be suffering from claustrophobia - a fear of enclosed spaces and small spaces.

You need to talk to your own doctor about this so that you can get a written explanation to your boss as to your fears. You can read more about claustrophobia here, to see if this may be what you have:

Your doctor can help you further.
