Sometimes I wonder if phobias are really a thing or people just fake it. But who’s to say, there are many people who have strange phobias that are hard to believe exist. If you have a phobia, I am sorry for you mate.
Every once in a while I hear about a new phobia and I stay amused thinking what if I had a bizarre phobia, how would my life be? What would I do to overcome it? Is it possible to overcome a phobia?
A lot of questions and I am not a doctor. The least I can do is talk about the weirdest phobias I have heard of and I think you’ll be both surprised and intrigued to know about them. To me, the most terrible phobia is Sarmassophobia, fear of dating. I guess it is not that weird for all of us because everyone experiences it at one point in their life.
