Fears and Phobias

What is a Phobia?

By definition:

A persistent, abnormal, and irrational fear of a specific thing or situation that compels one to avoid it, despite the awareness and reassurance that it is not dangerous.

A strong fear, dislike or aversion.                                                                                   

Among the symptoms are sweaty palms, erratic heartbeat, nausea, increased muscle tension, shortness of breath, blurred vision, catastrophic thoughts and fainting.

Not all fears are harmful.  In fact some are useful and or beneficial for personal safety.

To gauge the degree to which your fear is affecting you, ask yourself the following:

Is my fear taking up a lot of my time?         Do I think about it obsessively?

Am I suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder?  Is PTSD affecting my life?

Are you crippled by fears and phobias?

Is my fear forcing me to do things the hard way?

Do I drive to work using a route that takes me five miles out of my way, rather than driving on the freeway or avoiding a bridge or tunnel?

Do I avoid travel and rob myself of the joy and relaxation of vacations due to fear?

Do I avoid going to bed at the same time as my wife because of fear of being Impotent?

Is my fear affecting my physical condition? Do my hands shake?  Is my pulse rapid?  Do I stutter?  Am I often depressed?

If you responded to any of these questions, you are a likely candidate for treatment!

Is it a fear or a phobia? If you are not doing something you should or want to do, it doesn’t matter how you label it GET RID OF IT!!

 Your problem may be the product of severe stress.  Your phobia may be the product of a series of experiences occurring over a period of years which built into an excessive anxiety.  Your phobia may be transmitted to you by another person.  Anyone with whom you are in close contact with can transmit a fear.  If you observe that someone always panics at the sight of an elevator and must take the stairs, you may eventually begin to fear elevators yourself.

Your phobia may be the result of a severe past trauma.  A painful emotional experience from the past can produce an unreasonable fear of that same situation. The trauma can be

Either conscious or subconscious; you may be aware of the original cause of the fear, or you may have successfully buried the trauma and have no recollection of it.  In many cases, the trauma that caused the phobia is repressed.
