Re: Getting over my phobia

I was terrified of storms as a child, I would make my entire family go to bed because I thought we would be safe if we were asleep. Now as an adult I am still afraid of storms. I am not afraid of thunder(although it can make me jump) nor am I afraid of lightening. Its the wind that I am afraid of. As soon as I see the wind picking up I get nervous. I have hauled my kids in the middle of a storm to my parent's house, so we(I) wouldn't be alone. My fear isn't really storms, just tornados, yet I have never seen one.
I don't know how to get over this fear and like you, with summer approaching I am beginning to feel nervous again.

You are definitely not alone with this one....
