Hi, its Paige again. I know we aren't supposed to post a whole lot of multiple threads about ourselves so I started to post on my old threads. This, however, seems like a topic that I think many people on here deal with and is a great question to have answered so I decided to post a new one with a new topic name. So my question is: Are phobias considered to be part of aniety and panic? I would assume that they are especially because my phobias seem as if they brought on my panic and anxiety. Also are dissociative disorders considered to be anxiety and panic? I personally have panic attacks, anxiety throughout most of the day, phobias, and depersonalization/derealization and they all seem to connect smoothly with one another. Lastly, does CBT help with all those conditions? Maybe all those and more? I would assume that too, but I'm just curious because I'm not positive. I figured some of you that are more experienced with these disorders or nurses on here would know alot more than me since I'm only a sufferer of about 2 months. So anyways, thanks so much and I hope that alot of people get some answers they are looking for from this post, and if not, I'm probably just asking obvious questions that maybe I should already know haha!!


Much Love,
Paige

Edit: Hi Paige, I changed your shade of blue as the cyan blue is very difficult to read . :)

Good Morning,

Phobias are usually considered to be an anxiety problem. 

Dissociative disorders  may fall under the category of Anxiety and are frequently brought on by PTSD.  They also may fall under anxiety or depression. 

Please remember I am not a professional so this is just the info I have.  Others may have more input for you.

Take care and I am off to work.

Gentle Hugs

Kitt
