    Mine are, being stuck in the middle of traffic during a stop light, haircuts, work meetings, and going ANYWHERE alone. I know mine are absolutely ridiculous, im just curious to what others may have....

    Enduronman- I wish mine were as simple as that! lol. It may not be so simple for you though.

    Kdubg- My anxiety has gotten so bad, when ever I panic, I instantly get shot of breath and heart palpitations. When my anxiety subsides, all symptoms go away. Believe it or not but cardio helps big time with preventing palpitations. BTW- im young too- only 26.

    I second haircuts. I imagine getting a manicure to be very uncomfortable too.

    Mine was... don't laugh... about old black and white pictures...
    The best way I found out there to resolve any kind of phobias is the tipi technique www-tipi-us.com
    I can talk about it because I experienced it many times on several fears and it works... very quickly (in minutes) and the result is permanent.
    You can learn to do the technique by yourself to be completely autonomous with it...

    Hello,

    Your phobias are not ridiculous... believe me I saw a bunch of them... but the fact is that you can permanently and extremely quickly release them.
    get some information about the "Tipi" technique (on tipi-us).
    A session with a professional is 30 min, the result is garantied, and then you can learn how to do sessions on your own, without needing any help...

    My legs will go wobbly when im alone(must be an adult with me, kids dont count) in confined spaces, toilets, rooms, undergrounds, as long as i dont see the sun and the nature or the sun is gonna set, it gets me anxious. Although, i havent been diagnosed with Agoraphobia, i have those since i had PA, not sure if its just me or the PA triggering.

    I have Emetophobia, which is the fear of vomit/vomiting. I think about it constantly and it is the main cause of my anorexia/anxiety/panic disorder/OCD/agoraphobia... It has legit ruined my life. I don't go anywhere unless I reallllllly have to. It sucks and i have had it for almost 11 yrs now.

    I used to be scared of soooooo many things but now that I have my anxiety under control the fear of these things had pretty much gone. Most of the things that freaked me out were when I was in situations I couldn't readily escape from. Like MotherofTwo I was so scared of being stuck in a traffic jam, even being stopped at red lights scared me, along with being on motorways so I would either not go places or go really out of the way routes at quiet times to avoid motorways, jams etc. I stopped going to hairdressers as well and managed to get a girl who would come to the house and even then it was hard! I would always make sure I was close to home and never go to far away as home was my safe place. I stopped going to the cinema, restaurants, theatre as I was worried I would have to suddenly get up and leave due to my anxiety. The list is almost endless! I also went through a phase of being terrified when i heard a plane overhead as I was convinced it was going to crash. I wouldn't go out in bad weather or if it was too hot etc etc.
    Basically anxiety limited absolutely everything I did but luckily I have only had 3 or 4 bad episodes in my life but they did leave me off work for months at a time. After my most recent bout I finally feel that I have a handle on things and am living a "normal" life again thanks to a wonderful psychotherapist and beta blockers!
