In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Phobia, Shmobia.” I don’t have any particular fears so far because even though I’m afraid of the dark I won’t call it a phobia, can still go to dark places but of course w/ someone and then we bring lots of flashlight. *laughs* and I fear snakes, who wouldn’t? but still I have no phobia of it not unless it was not cage. for me PHOBIA is a persistent abnormal, irrational fear of a specific thing or situation that compels one to avoid it, despite the awareness and reassurance that it is not dangerous. That’s all.
