I have a couple of phobia/fears, two of which I know exactly where they stem from, and I am getting better at dealing with them.

 

However I have a couple of others that I have no clue where they stemmed from, but have always had them from as far back as my parents could remember!

 

One is anything round my neck, such as a scarf, or even a top that has a collar that remotely touches my neck - I feel as if I'm being choked, it's quite a panicky feeling - apparantly I was like it when I was very small too, and freaked out when my parents put a dress on me that had a high neckline!

 

Some think this could stem from a previous life, and if my other fear/phobia is anything to go by they could be on to something.

 

Anybody else with fears or phobia that they don't know where they came from?

Feet! I can't even look at naked human feet without feeling uncomfortable!!

 

My daughter can't eat crumpets unless they're upside down, so the she can't see the 'holey' side!

Someone must have told the lady with the pea phobia that giving birth was like shelling peas :lol:

 

I have a very irrational fear of empty swimming pools, as in with no water in them, I have no clue where it could have come from either.

Nope that's just it - I never swam whatsoever because I had an ear condition from being a baby and had operations on my ears, so swimming was out of the question!

 

Which makes it even more strange....

It's not as dramatic as the title, but the effects of certain spider bites need DRASTIC treatment and they effect a certain part of the male anatomy! (google priapism if your curiosity allows ya :p)

 

I don't have any phobias that I'm aware of other than very slight acrophobia (Fear of heights) and that was due to a close accident.

 

Phobias have 2 main areas to tackle them.

 

1st is flooding. Overload the brain with as much of what you fear as possible, and when you realise nothing bad is happening, you lose the fear.

 

2nd is CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy) which is sitting down and talking to a psychiatrist about the issues, finding the root and resolving things.

 

Both should be talked through with a professional 1st.

Lmfaooooo!!! :lol:

 

Through my life I've had 5 phobias/fears, but one of those is fire/fireworks, which I'd say was a pretty normal fear anyway!

 

The other 4 don't really affect my life, as it's not often I come across swimming pools with no water in :lol: but I do have to turn away if there's one on TV, and have only ever come across one face to face while on holiday, I thought I was going to collapse :!:

 

The high collar/anything round the neck thing doesn't affect me at all, as I just don't wear anything like that.

 

The other is small people :|, I mean I'm not tall myself, I'm only 5ft, but I mean really small people - I'm not 100% certain where it came from, but I do think it came from a visit to a circus when I was about 3yrs old! That can be a difficult one, and I could slap myself round the face, as there is no way I could ever forgive myself if I were to offend anyone. One time I was in the supermarket, and there was a small lady, with her daughter who was also small - she asked my OH if he would reach something for her, I did my best to keep calm, and breathe slowly, but the shakes and sweating started pretty quick, I go pale as well, so my husband just told her I had a tummy virus. Thank God that's my only encounter up to now.

 

But the last one I know for certain where it came from, and I have got much better - I have a fear of wings flapping round my head! When I was about 2yrs old (and I remember it like it was yesterday), I was in my pushchair, and a huge Rook swooped down and we think tried to grab the clips I had in my hair, it got it's talons caught up in my hair, and was flapping like a gooden - so my Mother and my Mothers Aunt decided to batter it with their handbags, but were also hitting me around the head :lol:

 

Having all the birds come in our garden to be fed has helped a lot with that, although my skin does still prickle when a Crow or any Jackdaws swoop down!

Life is like an echo, it all returns......The good, the bad, the false, the true......So if you give life the best you have, the best will come back to you.
