FEAROF takes you one step closer to a life without fear
First, let me just quickly tell you about my own personal experience with panic attacks and anxiety. I would never have thought it was something that could happen to me, but it did, and it was the worst time of my life.
It was actually something as harmless as a hiatus hernia that triggered my fear of death. Suddenly I felt pain in my chest, had trouble breathing, and my heart started pounding faster and faster. I panicked, which only made it worse. It felt like I was suffocating, and I was sure my time had come. My girlfriend called an ambulance, and I was taken to the hospital, but they couldn’t figure out what was wrong with me, so I was sent home again.
After three months of several visits to the hospital and the doctor, they finally found the cause of the problem. This was too late, though, as I had already developed a serious anxiety disorder that greatly affected my life. I didn’t feel safe anywhere and couldn’t be alone without worrying about having another panic attack.
How I got over my anxiety
I had to do something, so I started researching, and I must have read every single book and online article on the subject. It took a while, but I finally figured out how to turn things around and overcame my biggest fear. I’m not saying you will, but I believe learning more about your phobia can point you in the right direction.
However, you should seek professional help instead of relying on the information you find online if this is something that greatly affects your life. No one should live a life in fear, and it’s okay to admit that you can’t overcome it yourself. So please seek help if something keeps troubling you.
But now you know why I created this site. I wanted to help others understand and ultimately try to get rid of their fear by learning more about it.
This idea has made FEAROF grow into one of the most popular sites about fears and phobias. Because of the useful information provided here, thousands of people have learned how to deal with their anxiety and greatly improved their lives. I hope it will be as helpful to you too.
One final thing I want to mention that I know many people find helpful is all the comments found under each article. FEAROF is by far the largest social platform for people with phobias, and sometimes just hearing about others’ similar problems and sharing your own experiences is helpful in itself.
