Fear of Semi Trucks

I am 15 almost 16 and I have a fear of semi trucks. I just hate it. Every time I am in the car going someplace and we are coming up beside a semi, I find myself scooting away from the window, or my muscle start tightening up. This has been going on for about 5 years now. I cannot imagine what it will be like when I actually have to drive on the highway by myself.

Just the other day I was riding the bus to a Volleyball game and I had my back to the window. Well when I turned to look outside I see a semi, and I jumped out of my seat and screamed. It was embarrassing, but I didn't care at the moment. I was too busy hiding under the seat. And all I hear is all my friends telling me "Look a semi." and then one of my friends said "It's gone." thinking I cold believe her, I look and we were NOT passed the terrifying truck of torture.

This has become so serious to where if I'm riding in the car with my parents and we are coming up beside one, they know to speed up or slow down so we never pass them. But if we do then it's for a short amount of time.

I wish I knew the name of my fear, but they don't have it. I have checked tons of sites. If anyone findes the name of it, let me know. Or put it up on this website, I'll check it out sooner or later.
