Fears and Phobias are Distressing

The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual 5, defines a phobia as a "marked and persistent fear that is excessive or unreasonable, cued by the presence or anticipation of a specific object or situation." Sadly, this means your world has gotten smaller as you avoid what you fear. 

Some common phobias include:

  • Heights
  • Flying
  • Crowds
  • Public Speaking
  • Animals
  • Insects
  • Needles (receiving an injection)
  • Seeing Blood
