Fear of space

by Lucca

I'm 14 years old and for as long as I can remember, I've been absolutely petrified of outer space. When people mention space, or I see pictures of it, I freak out and start having a panic attack, I've even fainted before because of it, and it's absolutely horrible. I went to a therapist and when I spoke to them about this, she told me that I was, indeed, astrophobic. It's a dumb and horrible phobia to have, and I hate explaining it to people, and the whole "fad" of galaxy print clothes and phone cases isn't exactly helping too much. I have gotten a little bit better, because now it takes more exposure to it to make me start freaking out. So yeah, that's me!
