Phobia is a condition in which a person experiences excessive fear of certain conditions or objects. Phobic conditions can cause obstacles for someone who is experiencing daily activities. Phobias can cause people to feel panic, can't think, heart palpitations, cold sweat, tightness, chest pain that makes them want to pass out, and many more. In addition, phobias often cause sufferers to experience excessive anxiety to depression.
The types of phobias can vary. Common phobias include dark places phobia, closed places phobia, crowd phobia, animal phobia, water phobia, altitude phobia, etc.
The best way to deal with a phobia is to consult a psychiatrist or psychiatrist. You can tell the doctor about your fears and the doctor will provide you with snacks according to your condition, either in the form of therapy counseling sessions or drugs.
The therapy provided can be in the form of exposure therapy (the patient is exposed to his fear so that the patient can get used to it) and behavioral therapy (how to respond appropriately when fear arises). While the oats that are given are generally in the form of sedatives that help make patients feel relaxed.
The advice for you is that you can try to think positively and logically when facing your fearful condition, try to relax in facing that condition, take a deep breath and exhale slowly. In addition, regularly participating in meditation sessions such as yoga can help make you calmer and more focused.
