Phobia literally means ‘Fear’ - scientifically known as a type of anxiety disorder in which an illogical and excessive fear arises from a particular object or a situation.

For most people, talking about phobias is an embarrassment, which may lead to avoiding circumstances where they might have to face their fears.
