Getting over a phobia

I have this fear. I've had it for years. I can't walk out into the dark. When darkness surrounds me, I feel like I'm cornered. Nowhere to run. Beasts surrounding me. They won't stop coming. They won't stop killing.

But I can take comfort in one fact: I'm not extinct. Yet. If anyone can 'serve up-' some advice on how to get over my phobia, that'd be....SWEEEEET.

Re: Getting over a phobia

START WITH CONTROL POSITION.In your bedroom at night ,make it as dark as possible while having a light near you[off of course]. START with a short period of time,when you start getting the feeling turn on the light.[if the bedroom is not dark enough find a room with no windows] THEN. extend the time a little at a time until you get comfy with the idea . then test yourself the same way [as possibble] with the outside .

Re: Getting over a phobia

MarkyF,

You may like to try taking a few doses of Stramonium 30 and see if this helps. It is a herbal homeopathic remedy used for conditions where one can bear darkness or solitude. Hope this will help

Re: Getting over a phobia

AWESOME. I'll give these a try.

It's worth noting that having this fear doesn't make me less of a man, does it? Because I'm quite tall. Wide, too.

EVERYONE is afraid of something, no matter how big they are!
