1. Phobias
Article lists some of the more amusing phobias, like arachibutyrophobia fear of peanut butter sticking to the roof of the mouth.
Funny Phobias Most of the people in the world have a fear of one kind or another. While most people suffer from pathophobia (fear of disease), monophobia (fear of being alone), glossophobia (fear of public speaking), algophobia (fear of pain), taphephobia (fear of being buried alive), and many more, there are also some less popular phobias. At the end of this essay, I have compiled a list of the phobias that I find amusing. There are many people in the world that suffer from polyphobia, which simply means to have more than one fear. Not so common, people may suffer from antinomial phobias. For example, there are some people that live with vestiophobia (fear of clothes) and gymnophobia (fear of nudity). Another example is people with achluophobia (fear of darkness) and photophobia (fear of light). Watch out guys, within the next seven years, you will probably get married and you will suffer from pentheraphobia, which is one of the scariest phobias in existence, the fear of your mother-in-law! Not all phobias have been in existence for thousands of years. I’m sure that brontophobia (fear of thunder and lightning), febriphobia (fear of fever), and ophidiophobia (fear of snakes) have existed since the Black Ages. Some of the phobias that have formed in the last two centuries would be electrophobia (fear of electricity), motorphobia (fear of automobiles), and aviophobia (fear of flying). In 1945, a brand new phobia was quickly created and escalated drastically in the 1950’s. It is called nucleomituphobia, which is the fear or nuclear weapons. But that’s not the newest phobia in existence as of today. This threat is called cyberphobia (fear of computers). In mild cases, people may be afraid to use a computer or an ATM. In today’s society, technology is deeply integrated. Computers are used in calculators, cars, microwaves, power tools, and many more. So to the cyberphobic, I say, “Get over it, or go to the extreme and move away from the city, abandon your car, hand build your home, hand pump your water, build your fires, and hunt for your own food!” If you have a phobia, there is still hope for you. Phobias can be cured. Remember when you were a child and suffered from clinophobia (fear of going to bed) because of bogyphobia (fear of the bogeyman), achluophobia (fear of darkness), and lachanophobia (fear of vegetables). Now chances are good that you go to bed without checking your closet or looking under your bed, that you don’t go ballistic if the lights go out, and that you eat a salad every so often. Phobias can deeply impact a person’s life. A person with chronophobia (fear of time) probably won’t make it to their 10:00AM dentist appointment on time. A person with chaetophobia (fear of hair) is most likely bald, has no eyelashes, no eyebrows, etc. A person with cibophobia (fear of food) usually hasn’t eaten in weeks and could easily be anorexic. This proves how serious and destructive phobias can be. If you do suffer from any strange phobias, I would suggest calling one-eight-hundred-phobias, for arithmophobics (people who fear numbers) or for logophobics (people who fear words), 1-800-635-1317. This phone number is for entertainment purposes only. Now on a more serious note, in all the years I’ve lived and all the knowledge I’ve acquired, I can only find one, yes one, valid fear. This fear is called zeusophobia, which is the fear of God. In Heaven, the false phobias are destroyed, but in Hell they can be amplified. I still find it hilarious, though, that these phobias exist, especially since someone must have experienced these fears so they could be valid phobias. So if you experience arachibutyrophobia, you’re probably one in a million, but you’re still out there. some fears may be listed more than once A Ablutophobia- Fear of washing or bathing Aerophobia- Fear of swallowing air Ambulophobia- Fear of walking Anablephobia- Fear of looking up Anemophobia- Fear of wind Anthrophobia- Fear of flowers Arachibutyrophobia- Fear of peanut butter sticking to the roof of the mouth.

The Phobia List has now been on the web for 10 years. It was actually on the pre- World Wide Web internet for a couple of years before the www came into existance. It was a much shorter list then. It's grown because of the interest and help of many people. I want to thank everyone that has helped or tried to help with the tending of the list. Without them this would be a mostly blank page. Thank you all. The List has been pilfered by many and appears in various forms throughout the web.

6. Treatment For Phobias
Curing phobias, Shyness and Obsessive Compulsive Disorders by Doctor Howard Simple or specific phobias have been quite effectively treated with
Treatment for Phobias
exposure treatment , so called because the patient is exposed to the phobic stimulus as part of the therapeutic process. One simple form of exposure treatment is that of flooding , where the person is immersed in the fear reflex until the fear itself fades away. Some phobic reactions are so strong that flooding must be done through one's imagining the phobic stimulus, rather than engaging the phobic stimulus itself. Some patients cannot handle flooding in any form, so an alternative classical conditioning technique is used called counter-conditioning (Watson, 1924). In this form, one is trained to substitute a relaxation response for the fear response in the presence of the phobic stimulus. Relaxation is incompatible with feeling fearful or having anxiety, so it is said that the relaxation response counters the fear response. This counter-conditioning is most often used in a systematic way to very gradually introduce the feared stimulus in a step-by-step fashion known as systematic desensitization , first used by Joseph Wolpe (1958). This desensitization involves three steps: (1) training the patient to physically relax, (2) establishing an anxiety hierarchy of the stimuli involved, and (3) counter-conditioning relaxation as a response to each feared stimulus beginning first with the least anxiety-provoking stimulus and moving then to the next least anxiety-provoking stimulus until all of the items listed in the

Home Search the Web: Powered by: What are you afraid of today? No matter what your fear, there are probably other people who are afraid of the same thing. In the West, phobias are the one of the most commonly diagnosed mental disorders.The phobic person is not alone. As much as thirteen percent of the population may currently have phobias, and as many as sixty percent of people have been affected by a phobia at some point in their life. When the fears of the phobic person get to the point of causing great anxiety, and start to disrupt normal life, it is time to get some help. If these fears cause misery, or a desire to flee from the fear, (the Greek word phobos means extreme fear and flight), the phobic person may need some help to get over these fears. The Greeks, Phobos was a god who could help them win in battle. Phobos could so confuse the enemy, and strike in them a feeling of abject terror. The enemy would be stunned into inaction, so that the victory of the Greeks would be assured. For some people, even just the thought of their phobia is enough to provoke the fear response of the actual feared situation. Sometimes the fear is so strong they can feel physical symptoms such as dizziness or nausea, many of the same feelings that come with

18. Scared
Discusses separation anxiety, thunderstorm anxiety and obsessivecompulsive disorder.
Phobias and Other Anxiety Separation anxiety - it's not just for doggies anymore. Cats have the ability to be just as destructive and annoying as dogs, in this regard. Well, maybe not AS annoying.
Separation anxiety is demonstrated by several things, centered on how the cat acts when you leave, when you're gone, and when you return. Here, your cat is a dog. You try to leave, and she runs to the door, crying, climbing at the wall, saying take me too!! She tries to sneak out the door and run with you to work. When you're gone, she cries, and destroys things she never does when you're around. And when you return, it's the biggest event of the world - all is right, because you are home!!
Flattering, but...not preferable. Your cat must be retrained, because it's causing her extreme stress every time you leave, she's destroying things, and you may not always be able to successfully chase her when she sneaks out. What can you do?
The first task is for the owner. Change *your* routine. We don't realize it, but we do the exact same things again and again every day. Your cat will figure out that when you put on shoes, turn off the TV, pick up your briefcase and grab your keys, you're on the way out. So, instead, do things out of order. Put your keys in your pocket a half hour before you're ready to leave. Put on your shoes right away after showering. When you aren't leaving, go put on your shoes, pick up your keys and bag - and walk back to the couch and sit down. This will help to break her of the patterned response.
