A phobia is the unrelenting fear of a situation, activity, or thing that causes one to want to avoid it. Phobias are largely under reported, probably because many phobia sufferers find ways to avoid the situations to which they are phobic..Women tend to be twice as likely to suffer from a phobia compared to men.

Types of Phobias

Having a phobia about something is very different from everyday worry or stress. There are several types of phobias, including social, situational, animal, and specific phobias (fear of particular items or objects).
