Post Phobias

I'd love to see a forum for phobias, distinct from panic disorder although sometimes the two co-mingle. I have a fear of flying and have been fighting with it for 25 years, going to groups and flying in between and taking meds or the train. It's a huge problem I think for many people. Any feedback?

Phobia's, in my opinion, cannot be compared to obsessive compulsive disorders. I have "social" phobia... it isnt a "compulsive" behaviour and not "obsessive" either. It's a fear/feeling of a very real nature. Obsessive/Compulsive is a "need" to "do" or an inability to "not do". I hope you will rethink your categorial lineup. Thank you.
