Phobias are irrational fears that are commonly experienced by individuals of all ages and genders. Some common phobias include acrophobia (fear of heights), aerophobia (fear of flying), claustrophobia (fear of confined or crowded spaces), and hemophobia (fear of blood). When a person is exposed to the fear, or even the thought of the fear, they may experience extreme levels of anxiety that involve physical symptoms of shaking, vomiting, crying, or the overall inability to function. Learning how to manage your fears in positive and effective ways is extremely helpful for overcoming phobias and anxiety-related fears.
