Do you have a phobia?

By Rutaba

Phobia is defined as a type of anxiety disorder, defined by a persistent and excessive fear of an object or a situation. The phobia typically results in a rapid onset of fear and is present for over six months.

Many of us think of our basic or rational fear as a phobia. To say in detail, it is obvious for a person to be scared of snakes or tiger as they are deadly and vicious animals that can eat you up alive. But fears like as a fear of height, water, dark, night, cat, people etc. These fears are irrational and very extreme and they might lead to a panic attack if the host comes in contact with it. These phobias are usually formed due to an occurrence in past, an insidious event.

Phobias are not just fear but they are the extreme fear of specific something. I’ll share with you some of the phobias that you may relate to. There are three categories which includes:

1.Specific: phobias, which are the most common and focus on specific objects

2. Social phobia: which causes extreme anxiety in social or public situations

3. Agoraphobia: which is the fear of being alone in public places from which there is no easy escape.

These are the categories in which lies various phobias and some of them are enlisted below:

Aviophobia or Aviatophobia: fear of flying

Amaxophobia: fear of riding a car

Blennophobia: fear of smile

Microphobia: fear of germs/small things

Nyctophobia: fear of dark

Ochlophobia: fear of crowd

Keraunophobia: fear of thunder

Atelophobia: ear of imperfection, the fear of fear of never being good enough

Thantophhobia: fear of losing someone you love

Cacophobia: fear of ugliness

Now , these few enlisted phobia seems very common and you may feel that you might have almost every phobia in the list but trust me, you might not have even a single one in it. You see, phobias are the so extreme that they start controlling you and you can’t do anything about it if come face to face with your phobia. Fear of losing someone, being alone, being forgotten, seems like you but these very much extreme in nature.

It is a kind of disorder and it may be inherited in you through any memory if your ancestors. A memory influential enough can leave its prints on one’s mind and may be passes down to generations.

An Indian movie “Phobia” displays the Agoraphobia through a girl who is scared to ever go out of her house again and continues suffer inside as well. Another Thai movie Phobia displays a variety of Phobias in people that ends up feeding on the host.
