I guess most if us if not all of us have fears about something and if worst have phobias. I can definitely say that I have one and it sometimes is interfering with my social life. I have tried not to think about too much but I guess I can't control it. I have fear of heights (ACROPHOBIA) and just the thought of going on high places especially the open areas like top or edge of building would definitely make me nervous and will sweat.
Aside from that I have fear of something that goes up and down say for example Ferri's Wheel, roller coasters, and would you believe even humps? LOL. You'll never encourage me to ride those because I know I 'll lost my breath and my stomach will turn over. I remember my niece tricked me in riding the Scooby Doo ride in Sydney, i almost faint in deep fear..LOL. She was laughing hard but I almost kill her for that ..lol
I am trying sometimes to counter my fear but I guess once it is there, it stays.. What about you ,What is your Phobia?
So what are phobias? Accdg. to Wikipedia A PHOBIA ( Greek word phóbos meaning FEAR), or morbid fear', is an irrational, intense, persistent fear of certain situations, activities, things, or people. The main symptom of this disorder is the excessive, unreasonable desire to avoid the feared subject. When the fear is beyond one's control, or if the fear is interfering with daily life, then a diagnosis under one of the anxiety disorders can be made.
