How To Get Rid Of Phobias Without Having To Hold The Animal?
Good afternoon, I have been phobic from around the age of 10, now I am 21 years old. I was very scared when I saw worms, even just saying my name was ticklish. If I see the animal 1 I will continue to see it, then I feel that the animal is approaching me. When I saw the animal I got goosebumps, panic, and even could not sleep after seeing. Once yesterday I went to a psychologist and tried the tips, started to improve a little but after I accidentally stepped on it without sandals I was scared again, how to cure it? But I am very afraid if I have to hold it even see directly.
