We all need to perceive some level of fear. In dangerous situations, such as if your house is on fire, your body will trigger the natural ‘fight or flight’ response, where adrenaline is activated and increased, enabling you to get out of the house quickly. But in the case of a phobia, this response can be activating even when the threat is minimal or non-existent. For example, it is natural to be afraid of a snarling Doberman that is unattended, but it is irrational to be terrified of a sweet poodle that is with his owner on a leash 100 yards away; but this is how you may feel if you suffer from extreme fear or phobia of dogs.
What’s more, almost everyone has an irrational fear: just the thought of visiting the dentist, public speaking or even a tiny spider can bring on sweating or palpitations. Many people can manage these irrational fears – but when fear prevents you from doing something you want to do or makes you avoid something for irrational reasons, it has become a disabling factor in your life and can be called a phobia.
When you have a phobia, most likely you know it is irrational but you still cannot control how you feel and react. If you are avoiding socializing with people or taking classes for fear of the attention; not taking a promotion that would mean giving presentations; missing doctor/dentist appointments because of fear of blood; not visiting family/friends because of the drive there; walking an extra two miles to avoid crossing a bridge, then you may have a phobia.
