Feelings Of Excessive Fear When It Rains At Night?
Hello, I want to ask. So like this, every heavy rain at night I feel very afraid of my chest feeling tight, sweating cold, easily shocked and heart palpitations, especially if I’m alone. But if it rains during the day I don’t feel any fear. Then what happened to me and what I had to do to overcome it. Thank you
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Normally, people will not be afraid of rain, regardless of whether it occurs during the day or night. Maybe people will worry, for example when he drives, he will worry about the difficulty of seeing the road, or if he is somewhere, he is worried about how to go home, but not to show excessive and constant symptoms as you feel.
With what you experience, there may be a certain mental disorder, which based on your story can be a condition of PTSD (Post traumatic stress disorder) or phobias. PTSD is a condition of mental disorder that is triggered by bad and tragic events that have been experienced or witnessed. While phobias, are a person's excessive fear of a particular object that does not have to have a certain connection or relationship with him in the past. Both have symptoms similar to what you have said.
So in fact further investigation is needed in the form of in-depth interviews to find out if there have been events in your past that can associate the rainy conditions at night with something bad, so that when you now experience rain at night, your subconscious brings you back to conditions that are realized easily shocked, pounding, and so forth. It could also be for example that you in childhood often watched horror films whose scary scenes were very closely related to the rainy conditions at night, so now you think that when it rains at night something bad will happen. The possibilities are very diverse, and if there are people who experience fear of rain at night like you, maybe that's why you are not the same.
Therefore, we suggest that you consult with a psychologist or psychiatrist regarding this, to determine later what conditions you might be experiencing, whether PTSD, phobia, or even beyond that. Handling later will depend on the results of the inspection.
Meanwhile, when you feel that way try to do breathing exercises by taking a deep breath and exhaling slowly, doing meditation, relaxation, inhaling aromatherapy or listening to soothing songs. So, hopefully answering your question.
