Welcome! Phobias are just anxiety taken to an extreme from my understanding. It all emanates from the way we process our thoughts. Cbt is what got me feeling better so you may want to look into joining a cbt group or reading more about it and trying some of the exercises. The thought countering TEA forms are the one that has helped me the most. Persistence pays and remember you can get better!

Hello,

Yes phobias, bring em on! I have anachrophobia (really predictable I know) I cannot be in the same house as a spider. I once slept in my car beacuse there was a spider in my flat and my boyfriend was away. It was a long cold night! Please feel free to share any issues you have with phobias.

I don't know many people who like spiders? But at least I am not to the point of having a phobia about them turn

     Don't feel too bad.  I'm just as terrified of spiders also.  Arachnophobia big time!!   I also have a phobia of death and dark places.   I used to sleep with my head under the blanket and make a peep hole so I could see what's coming at me.  The entire time, of course, I either had a night light or the television on so that there was light in the room.

Hi Nikki :)

I also have a bit of a phobia about meds and such, but the one thing that helped me out is knowing that if I need to have something to make me better, I'm not going to let it stop me from my recovery :) I want to live and be healthy so I'll do just about anything to make sure this happens :)
Much Love, Hugs, Peace & Comfort . . . Your Bro . . . Sam :)

Chocolate covered spiders??? No thanks even without a spider phobia and no reality show eating disgusting things challenges for me either.
