What is a phobia?
A phobia is something a person fears to the point that they feel they have to change how they behave. One type of phobia, called specific phobia , can involve fear of an object (like an elevator) or a situation (like public speaking) that poses little or no danger. Phobias can also involve fear of being embarrassed, looked at, or made fun of in social or work situations. These are called social phobias . With both of these phobias, the fear is extreme and hard to control. Without treatment, phobias can last many years and affect a person's career, relationships, and daily life activities. Both specific and social phobias are types of anxiety disorders It's important to know that when a person has a specific or social phobia, it's not her or his fault. And, it's not something a person can just "snap out of." No one knows for sure what causes phobias.

145. Valentine's Day History, Symbols, Folklore & Phobias By Brownielocks
Valentine phobias. For some people with certain phobias, the following can be a problem for them OrinthoApiphobia - Fear of the Birds and Bees.
Brownielocks and The 3 Bears
present Originally the word Valentine meant the person whose name was picked from a box to be chosen as your sweetheart up until the 1500's. Then around 1533, it meant the folded piece of paper with the sweetheart's name on it. By 1610 it then became the gift given to this special someone and by 1824 it then became a poem, letter or verse to a sweetheart. Although Valentine's Day is celebrated on February 14 every year, it originates from the Roman celebration called Lupercalia , which was held on February 15, a fertility festival.
Roman armies invaded countries physically as well as socially. When the Romans invaded France, they introduced this festival in which Roman boys drew names of Roman girls out of an urn (to determine their partners) and then the couple exchanged gifts on the festival's day. This was considered a pagan celebration, so in 469 C.E., Pope Gelasius decided to put a Christian spin on this celebration by declaring that it was now to honor St. Valentine (A young Roman who was martyred by Emperor Claudius II who was said to have died on February 14, 270 C.E. for refusing to give up Christianity). Why was he killed? Rumor has it that St. Valentine was a priest who defied the emperor's ban on marriages by marrying young people in secret. He was discovered, and put to death.

The Infinite Mind: Week of May 3, 1999 The show begins with Anica , a 40-year-old New Yorker with a bug phobia. She is terrified that they will crawl on her, touch her, even enter her ear or crawl up her nose. When she sees a bug, she experiences the anxiety, panic and sweating typical of a phobic reaction. Anica describes seeing and feeling three large waterbugs crawling on her as a child, and her mother's attempt at dispelling her fear through showing her the live bugs. Next, Dr. Goodwin talks with Jerilyn Ross , a psychotherapist in Washington, DC, president of the Anxiety Disorders Association of America, and the author of Triumph Over Fear . Ross points out that we all have fears, and if we didn't, we wouldn't survive as a species. A phobia differs from a fear in that it's and irrational fear reaction to an everyday object of activity. She says that people with phobias often modify their lives to avoid what they fear. Phobias often develop when a person has a panic attack in a given situation, in a tightly enclosed space for example. The person then becomes afraid to be in an enclosed place for fear of having another panic attack. The phobia becomes more of a fear of fear, of losing control, than a fear of enclosed places. The fear of the fear takes on a life of its own. Ross herself has a phobia of heights. She developed the phobia at the age of 25, when she had a panic attack in a tall building. She felt like she was losing control., like she was going to jump off the edge of the building. As a result, she became a master of avoidance, and by the time she was 30, hadn't been above the 10th floor of a building for 3 or 4 years, which is difficult in Manhattan, where she lived at the time. She said nobody knew about her avoidance Ross is still dealing with her phobia, but practices what she preaches and no longer avoids heights.

"I'm scared to death of flying, and I never do it anymore. It's an awful feeling when that airplane door closes and I feel trapped. My heart pounds and I sweat bullets. If somebody starts talking to me, I get very stiff and preoccupied. When the airplane starts to ascend, it just reinforces that feeling that I can't get out. I picture myself losing control, freaking out, climbing the walls, but of course I never do. I'm not afraid of crashing or hitting turbulence. It's just that feeling of being trapped. Whenever I've thought about changing jobs, I've had to think, "Would I be under pressure to fly?" These days I only go places where I can drive or take a train. My friends always point out that I couldn't get off a train traveling at high speeds either, so why don't trains bother me? I just tell them it isn't a rational fear." Many people experience specific phobias , intense, irrational fears of certain things or situationsdogs, closed-in places, heights, escalators, tunnels, highway driving, water, flying, and injuries involving blood are a few of the more common ones. Phobias aren't just extreme fear; they are irrational fear. You may be able to ski the world's tallest mountains with ease but panic going above the 10th floor of an office building. Adults with phobias realize their fears are irrational, but often facing, or even thinking about facing, the feared object or situation brings on a panic attack or severe anxiety.

It is probably part of our biological inheritance, a way of getting ready for a stressful situation. People become anxious when they face upsetting things like illness, unemployment, surgery or divorce. This is all completely normal but, for some people in some circumstances, anxiety can become so extreme it is disabling.

A list of phobias, arranged by the fear. Phobias
Phobias are caused by anxiety. A person's reaction to the thing that they have developed a phobia to can be quite dramatic, they basically have the mother of all anxiety attacks. Their reactions are beyond their control, and they often feel foolish, and are made to feel foolish by the people around them. If the object of a person's fear is easily avoided, the person's phobia can come across as nothing but an odd personality clique, while some can be crippling. Some phobias can ruin lives. Current treatments for Phobias are very successful. There really is no need for a person to suffer from this anxiety disorder in this day and age. Most mental health practitioners are trained to treat them.

What is a phobia?
A phobia is an identifiable and persistent fear that is excessive or unreasonable and is triggered by the presence or anticipation of a specific object or situation. Children and adolescents with one or more phobias consistently experience anxiety when exposed to the specific object or situation. Common phobias include fear of animals, blood, heights, closed spaces, or flying. In children and adolescents, the identified fear must last at least six months to be considered a phobia rather than a transient fear. Types of phobias seen in children and adolescents include the following:
  • specific phobia - anxiety is associated with a specific object or situation. The phobic object or situation is avoided, anticipated with fear, or endured with extreme anxiety to the extent that it interferes with normal routines and activities. panic disorder with or without agoraphobia - an unpredictable, unexpected period of intense fear or discomfort compounded by shortness of breath, dizziness, lightheadedness, shaking, fear of losing control, and an increased, racing heart beat (called a panic attack). Symptoms can last several hours, but usually peak after 10 minutes. Agoraphobia is defined as a fear of open spaces such as being outside or leaving home alone related to one or more phobias or the fear of having a panic attack.

It is probably safe to say that every child has fears in varying degrees. Some are the normal fears of childhood while others are not. It is the role of the parent to reassure a frightened youngster. The ability to do this well can result in the child's feeling secure and safe in his present and later life. A certain amount of fear is healthy and understandable. It keeps us and our children out of harm's way. We teach our children to fear running into a busy street, accepting candy from strangers, swallowing unidentified substances from the medicine cabinet, et cetera. In such cases, we are teaching our children to fear the results. We are, in essence, teaching them caution which is quite a different matter from dealing with a youngster who is responding to an imaginary rather than a real danger. Such a child evidencing anxiety when there doesn't seem to be anything specific to be anxious about, whose fear is so great, it borders on becoming a phobia.

List of phobias
The following is a list of phobias or more accurately, fears that have been given names . The article on phobias discusses the different kinds of phobias in more detail. In most instances the words listed here are neologisms (made-up words) coined to demonstrate a grasp of Greek word roots rather than descriptions of an actual condition. Only a few of the following terms occur in the medical literature. Most of these terms were devised by adding the suffix -phobia to a Greek word for the object of the fear (some use a combination of a Latin root with the Greek suffix, which some consider linguistically impure). Modern psychiatry groups phobias as "agoraphobia", "social phobia", or "simple phobia", avoiding coined words other than those which have been established by long use.
  • Ablutophobia - Fear of washing or bathing. Acarophobia - Fear of itching or of insects whose bites cause itching. Acerophobia - Fear of sourness. Achluophobia, Lygophobia, Nyctophobia, Scotophobia - Fear of darkness.
