I am back guys! Exams are over, so I am back. So I have talked about rare phobias here. I am gonna talk about some common phobias, because why not?
Aerophobia-Fear of flying
Fear of flying is called aviophobia or aerophobia. Fear of getting on a plane can be a heritage from childhood or it can emerge from adulthood as a result of various triggering factors. According to researches, air travel is the least likely form of transportation with a risk of death. And let me be honest, I don’t think I have a fear of flying, but I do get sick on planes so does that count? Do tell me in the comments.
Astraphobia-Fear of lightning and thunder
Astraphobia, also known as brontophobia, is a kind of phobia characterized by an intense fear of extremely loud but natural noises in the environment. Namely, lightning and thunder.When people have had a traumatic experience linked to thunderstorms and lightning, they may be more prone to develop astraphobia. And if a person has witnessed someone getting hurt by thunder and lightning, this can contribute to the development of astraphobia. And no-I don’t have Astraphobia. I actually enjoy thunder and lightning. [That’s some psychotic behavior]
Autophobia-Fear of being lonely
Autophobia, or monophobia, is the fear of being alone or lonely. Being alone, even in a usually comforting place like home, can result in severe anxiety for people with this condition. People with autophobia feel they need another person or other people around in order to feel safe. I definitely don’t have that. I enjoy my own company. Oh, to think about it I don’t even have friends.
Hemophobia-Fear of blood
While some people may feel uneasy about blood from time to time, hemophobia is an extreme fear of seeing blood, or getting tests or shots where blood may be involved. This phobia can have a serious impact on your life, especially if you skip important doctor appointments as a result.Hemophobia may be caused by a previous negative experience with blood. Those who have been through a traumatic injury or illness that caused a major loss of blood may be at increased risk. However, hemophobia may be inherited or even be rooted in evolutionary factors. No I don’t have hemophobia, pretty sure about that.
Claustrophobia- Fear of tight or crowded spaces
Claustrophobia is an anxiety disorder that causes an intense fear of enclosed spaces. If you get very nervous or upset when you’re in a tight place, like an elevator or crowded room, you might have claustrophobia. Some people have claustrophobia symptoms when they’re in all types of closed-up areas.Claustrophobia is often caused by a traumatic event experienced during early childhood. For example, adults may develop claustrophobia if, as a child, they: were trapped or kept in a confined space. were bullied or abused.
Do tell me which of these phobias you have. By the way, can we reach 70 followers before my birthday? It’s on 23 September…
