Hi /adv/ i have very rare phobia
Altocelarophobia - The fear of high ceilings. Does anybode here has it? You probably cant imagine how bad it is. I cant go to Tesco, churches, cathedrals gyms, please help me if you can
> phobias aren't permanent you silly
> it's not like fetishes that last
> a lifetime
> face your fear, and get over
i cant have opened eyes or look somewhere else than down. i also have fear of heights. Im always thinking that im fainting. have read forums and its going to be even worse
I was afraid of spiders when i was little
but my friend had a really cool tarantula
thanks to the help of my friend I woke up with that spider many times, and we grew to be bffs
Holy fucking shit I never heard of anyone that had the same thing I had. When I was in high school one of my gyms had an extremely high ceiling that I often had nightmares about. It was the worst time of my life because of how uneasy it made me. I can't go to any places that have high ceilings either. Just thinking about it is giving me sweaty palms.
I had a few ridiculous phobias as a child but now they are pretty much just regular fears. My family was cruel and unsympathetic and forced me to deal with my fears. It was sink or swim. I was lucky and didnt sink. You can try to man up and face your phobias and OVER TIME build up immunity, or avoid the water.
If you're a man, you need to suck it up. Phobias are pretty stupid for the most part. Fear of heights sort of makes sense, since you can fall and then splatter on the ground, that's the one I had. I ended up having no money and no job, and had no choice but to work shit jobs that involved heights with no safety measures...Each day i'd literally be sweating and shaking and dizzy...sometimes I'd throw up. Then one day, while bending my arms over the side of a roof on a house which was on a cliff (at the bottom of the cliff was ocean waves crashing against rocks) I suddenly wasn't afraid anymore (1/2)
I'm not sure how to explain it, but just try and be rational. The sky isn't going to fall... The ceiling in walmart isn't going to crash. Be logical, keep those thoughts in your mind. Then slowly get yourself in situations which involve facing fear a bit at a time. Realise that there are actual REAL dangers out there, in muslim countries you could just get your head cut off for no reason, or be shot, etc. You probably have a very safe life compared to many people. Be thankful. What would happen if you had to go to war? And face real danger? Toughen up! if you're a girl, disregard, since the world panders and coddles women and the government will give you welfare if you're afraid of a job or something lol
I try to tell myself that the ceiling isn't going to fall and that the building stood for ages so what are the chances. Also I tried listening to music in those type of places. It's just me though
