Unhappy Chronic Phobias.

I'm only 16, but I have so many stupid, ridiculous phobias.
To list a few, I'm afraid of small spaces, death, strangers, doctors, paralysis, the dark, the future, illness, etc... plus countless things that simply make me very uncomfortable, like being touched, steam/fog, stark white bare walls, being watched, etc.
I hate living my life in fear of everything. I've told many people about this, including my own mom, but since I'm notorious for being paranoid, she simply thinks I'm just paranoid of BEING paranoid. It's so stupid.
What should I do? I think I need parental permission to go on drugs for this, but is it even necessary?
No regrets. The past makes you who you are today.

If it's controlling your life, it definitely is a big enough problem that you should see a doctor about it. In some cities there are clinics you can go to despite your age...if your parents don't want to take you to a doctor. Also, whenever you go in for your next physical, you can talk to your doc then.

I'd let your parents know that if you could see a doctor about your paranoias, you'd feel much better and that these paranoias are ruling your life and are serious to you.

Id talk to a councellor if I were you.Dont let phobias run your life.
Look at me
you may think you see who I really am
but youll never know me
now I see if I wear a mask I can fool the world
but I cannot fool my heart
who is that girl I see,starting straight back at me?
When will my reflection show who Iam inside..
