ventillator claustrophobia question ...

Hello, does anyone else in the world have this? I am 56. Since childhood, I have suffered from a sort of claustrophobia having to do with situations of rooms without windows, and ventillators in ceiling (or sometimes the wall). I suffer from it to this day. It is a particular problem with service station bathrooms. This is a difficult problem now, because the restrooms in most modern structures no longer have a window.

It doesn't seem to be a problem when the vents are in the floor. It is just a ceiling thing.

Has anyone ever heard of this, please?
