Specific Phobias

Do you experience excessive fear or anxiety in the presence of a specific thing, or when anticipating certain situations? Phobias commonly focus on animals, insects, germs, heights, thunder, driving, public transportation, flying, dental or medical procedures, and elevators. Adults typically recognize when their fears are excessive or unreasonable. However, someone with a phobia typically either avoids a feared situation altogether, or endures it with intense distress.
