Everyone is afraid of something, but phobias are completely different. Phobias are the kind of thing that set of our fight or flight response. Whether you are a triskaidekaphobe afraid of the number 13 or the sight of a spider sees you burning down your house, phobias take a lot of work to overcome! They are held somewhere deeply inside us, and we have to face them directly.
You might be okay with earthworms, but the sight of a snake would set off your Ophidiophobia. Phobias are often illogical and pop up at the strangest times. Unlike an ordinary fear that can be dismissed, phobias can even overpower the imagination. Phobias cause a lot of anxiety, and they can take years of therapy to resolve. By telling us about the things you fear, we'll be able to isolate your particular phobia. We'll try our best to keep it on the light side, but answering with your gut instinct will see the best results.
Tell us if you are more afraid of the dark or more fearful of deep water, and we'll determine the fears from the phobias. Then, we'll be able to tell you the scientific word for the things that scare you most!
