I can't leave the room without her crying

My 5 month old screams her head off every time I even look like I'm going to leave the room. She screams until I come back and pick her up, even if she can see me the whole time. She screams even if someone is holding her and I leave the room. That is on the off chance that she'll happily let someone else hold her. I'm talking quick trips out of the room- getting my 4 & 5 year olds a drink, or going to the bathroom. What can I do??

I'd wear her.

Honestly, my ten month old has spurts of separation anxiety and while it can be really frustrating, I try to just take a deep breath and remind myself that this is temporary and that I'll miss the cuddles when she grows up and no longer needs my cuddles.

I do baby-wear (just got an Oh Snap! Yay! But have been using a Sakura Bloom RS previously) but for just going to the bathroom or getting some water it seems like it would take longer to get her on than it would to do what I left the room to do :(

Not even gonna lie- I've totally worn little one while peeing, cooking, getting something to drink, to go put on pants, etc.  There were days he never came off, lol.

Yep.
If baby is happily playing and you have to do something real quick i would just pick her up and carry her. If you need both hands just put her down in the new room.

Oh my!! I'm SOOO going through the SAME thing!! It sucks! I can't get anything done. I try to wear her but I can't wear her while I'm cleaning or showering or anything like that. She only takes like a few short naps throughout the day so I get very little time. I'm eager to hear some answers or comments to this, lol.

I do wear my dd sometimes but she doesn't like it unless I'm walking around. If I just stand there and fold laundry she hates it. :-/ I've even got 2 different type carriers so it's not that she hates one type and not another...

My first daughter was the same. It got to a point where she was okay if I was talking to her wheile I was in the other room... so I couldnt go anywhere out of earshot! But a few weeks later she was just over it
