Re: afraid of thunderstorms...
So let me ask you a question. Are you going to skip school for the rest of your life because of thunderstorms? What else are you going to miss out on in your life because of them?
You have a greater risk of getting killed in an auto accident than you do being hurt from a thunderstorm. Especially if you are indoors.
I have been through 3 tornados, had lightening hit my house and blown out every appliance in my house and start a small fire and I still live my life. I am not to fond of bad weather, but I know that if something is going to happen it will happen and there isn't much I can do about it.
You definately have a phobia and maybe get some counseling to help you with it. The only way you will overcome your fear is to face it head on. The counselor can help you to control your fear instead of it controlling you.
Also, have faith in a higher power that you will be kept safe.
