this is going to sound like a stupid phobia but..

i am terrified of the movie the exorcist. whenever i think of that girl i cant breathe and i start shaking i just freak out. if i see her face i cant stop thinking about it and at night i get really scared. sometimes i have dreams about her. i know it sounds really dumb to be so scared over something that doesnt exist but i cant help it. i have thought about seeing someone to talk about it but i dont know..... does anyone konw what i can do? please do not tell me to watch the movie to get over my fear :P

you have a phobia about it and need to be gradually desensitised, perhaps watch a video of it a few minutes at a time

Hello there !

How old are you if you do not mind disclosing it ? I think you will eventually
grow out of this with time.I used to be terrified at this cheap horror movie
that I saw one night,with time I grew out of it and then I did not even understand how it could have been so scary before. So do not worry it will
pass and you will laugh at it one day.

You might be a little overreactive to the fear. Best thing to do is try not worry about it at all and remember this: FACE ,ACCEPT, FLOAT, LET TIME PASS. This is from the book "Hope and help for your nerves" by CLaire WEEKES.
