Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. A phobia is a condition when a person experiences excessive fear of something, even though something is harmless and does not threaten his safety. Phobias can vary in shape, there are phobias at height, crowds, fire to seem strange like phobias on objects that have many holes.
Nobody knows why phobias can occur. According to psychoanalytic theory, phobias are associated with mental development disorders when a toddler, or because of a bad experience a person has experienced. But in reality, not all who have a bad experience will have a phobia, and not all who have a phobia, have had a bad experience.
So that in your present condition, first don't blame yourself. Anyone can get phobias and their fears are real. So don't feel burdened with people who are bothered by you because you didn't do it intentionally. This has nothing to do with you being spoiled, timid or weak, this is a disease that you never ask for.
Then to deal with your condition, you can consult a psychologist, psychiatrist, or hypnotherapist. There are many methods that can be tried to overcome phobias, such as desensitization, group therapy, flooding, hypnotherapy, and behavioral therapy. Talking to these experts will help you determine which therapy is right for you. In the meantime, you can try practicing yourself by starting to imagine a mouse, then gradually looking at the mouse's writing, then to a cartoon mouse image, then a picture of a real mouse, and holding a mouse puppet. So, hopefully answering your question.
