When is a fear a phobia?
Do you have a phobia or fear?
My youngest daughter suffers from odontophobia or dentophiba both are the same thing a fear of the dentist she has not been to a dentist in many years the last time she went they made her wait so long in the waiting room she had a mini breakdown and ended up in tears.
Me I am scared of open heights, I wouldn’t say I have Acrophobia since I am not scared of all heights only open heights, but I think it is pretty common to have a fear of open heights since who wants to fall……….lol
Now what gets me is when I hear people say to get over a fear you must face your fear…………..talk about stupid……..if you are afraid of dying do you have to die to get over the fear I don’t think that will work somehow since once you are dead you more or less stay dead…………………lol
Some fears may be overcome if you face them like Jessica’s fear of the dentist if she went she may be able to overcome it but then maybe not.
I use to have anxiety attacks when I was faced with going somewhere new or meeting new people, however as I have gotten older that has lessened.
