A phobia is defined as a “fear” of situations or objects, in medical terms it is an anxiety disorder. I suffer with many phobias that leave me fearful of basically everything and I have had these for around 10 years now.
Over the years I have seen many specialists to try to cure my phobias but nothing has worked, seeing a specialist is all well and good if they can help you work out what triggers the phobia but on the other hand their help can only go so far.
Curing a phobia isn’t easy and from experience it can make matters worse but of course this all depends on how complex your phobias are. Taking baby steps is the key to curing any phobia, think of yourself like a baby duck learning how to swim for the first time. You wouldn’t just jump in and expect to know how to swim, you would ease yourself into the situation and learn how to do it.
Always remember everyone is different, don’t dismiss any help offered because it may offer you some help but keep in mind the only person that can help you overall is yourself. You have to build your own road to recovery, no one can make that road for you.
