Haven't been out of town in 3 years. Sick of it.

I've been a full blown agoraphobe for 3 years.  Had some phobias before that, but I was able to do most everything.  Now I am only comfortable driving to places with no traffic around my house.  Facebook is killing me.  I see all my friends post pics of places they go.  I'm sick of not going and want to go too.  Should I just say, "screw it, I'm gonna go no matter what?"  I'll probably panic multiple times and hate the trip but maybe that's what I need to do.  My Dr. prescribed me Ativan.  I could also take that on the trip.  I wish there was a way I could learn to relax and enjoy trips without meds however.  I asked my Dr which option is better----trip with or without meds.  His answer was vague.  

Any suggestions/recs?
