Phobia
by: Anonymous

I think I have a fear of basketballs hitting me. I've been hit in the face several different times with them, and have had the same finger sprained three times by one. (It's not a very lucky finger, I guess.) Now, whenever people are throwing basketballs, I always make sure Im like 20 feet away at all times, and I'm always turning to make sure none are flying at me... as you can guess, Im never too eager to try and catch one.

I feel your pain.

I have that same exact fear. In fact I just realized that that fear turned into a phobia today in gym class when we were playing some game that was a mix of soccer and basketball. I was so scared I was shaking and running away when ever the ball came near me. I even got hit in the leg with the ball and almost started crying, not because it hurt (even though it did), but because I was so scared of it.

I have the same thing since a ball hit me in the face when i was little. I still flinch at everything coming to my face. It sucks and i feel you! I play volleyball and softball and still am scared of balls coming at my face but any other place i'm fine. I played better when i took a volleyball and this sounds retarded but i threw it up and let it hit me in the face. It helped me see that it wasn't going to hurt me too bad and if i controlled the ball and didn't let the ball control me i was good to go! Hope this helps :)
