Living Without Your Phobias
There are many things around you that can cause you some fear, such as snakes, spiders, heights, or blood. There’s nothing wrong with fear. In fact, it is a natural reaction and is considered a healthy sign to warn you about things that represent danger.
The problem is when your fears are irrationally pronounced to the extent that they are running your life and you’re going out of your way to avoid the stimulus that makes you anxious. If this is the case, you may have a full blown phobia. A phobia is an intense and debilitating fear of something, whether a person, an animal, object, place, situation or feeling. A severe phobia can restrict your day-to-day life and can cause you terrible anguish.
If you’re experiencing severe and uncontrollable anxiety at the thought or sight of what causes you to fear, it is an excellent idea to seek treatment for your phobia.
Establishing the Nature of Your Phobia
It can be difficult to trace the exact cause of your fear. While it is normal to have fears, it is a different matter to be crippled by what instigates your fear. Throughout life, there are certain experiences that may leave you intensely scarred emotionally and psychologically. You may become gripped with overwhelming fear even when there is no imminent danger or threat. The signs and symptoms may initially manifest as mild and tolerable feelings to excessive panic as you get closer to the object, event or situation of your fear. By the time the phobia is triggered, the physical signs are visibly marked, such as the pounding of the heart, agitated stomach, nausea, severe sweating, and hot/cold flashes.
When the emotional signs are causing you the feeling of powerlessness and lack of control, there is the need for your phobia to be assessed. This type of anxiety disorder doesn’t go away without proper treatment.
Freeing Yourself from Phobias
Avoiding the stimulus will not make your phobia go away. Instead, you’re choosing to live with it. Whatever your phobia is, you have the option to stop it from controlling your life. Thankfully, almost all types of phobias can be treated, especially when referred to a specialist with expertise in behavioral therapy.
Right now, this idea may be causing you a great amount of anxiety. Fear not! Carolina Counseling Services in Fayetteville, NC is here to allay your fears. Just make a call to request an appointment and one of its independently contracted counselors will be available to help you live your life free from phobias.
We can help!
