What are Phobias?

Phobias are a debilitating and overwhelming fear of particular situations such as people, places, situations, animals or feelings. For example, you may have an overwhelming fear of spiders or even people and social situations. Symptoms can range from sweating, trembling, and feeling nauseous to having chest pains and feeling detached from your body
