  PHOBIAS  
Phobias & Fears

The word “phobia” is an English suffix of Greek origin. A ‘phobia’ is an irrational or excessive fear of something. Fear is a normal and healthy part of life. Fear plays an important role in keeping us from entering harmful situations and helping us decide when to get out of situations that are not necessarily the best.

Under normal circumstances, fear can be managed through reason and logic. It does not take over our lives or cause us to become irrational. A phobia, however, twists the normal fear response into something that is difficult or impossible to control.
