It is the fear of death plays in the human psyche the most important function - allows him to survive in critical situations. Fear - is the strongest neuro-physiological process.

Phobia - a mental disorder, in which a person involuntarily experiencing the strongest fear in situations quite safe. Phobia has nothing to do with the natural fear, which "helps" people in situations of real danger. A phobia causes people to avoid the common places where they are, apparently, is not threatened. This means that it makes people less free. From someone who knows how to overcome fear can often hear the phrase: "I am afraid to go out" (agoraphobia). Phobia subjugates some part of life, and perhaps should allow the unreasonable fears of people to lead us, like the marionettes. Phobias and their human characteristics, the list, which includes fears and phobias, are quite large.

      When fear interferes with your life, you become sensitized ( sensitive) to the perceived threat. The only way to conquer a fear is to desensitize yourself to it (exposure therapy). This is often combined with CBT. Exposure therapy takes a certain amount of bravado on the part of the sufferer.
