people chewing gum frightens me

I have had this since I was a child too. At the age of 14 my family took a vacation and I was aloud to take a friend.

Sitting next to me in the backseat of the car she chewed,popped,cracked and spit her salvia all over my face. I asked her to spit it out because she was getting on my nerves. Big mistake she did it more and worse. I lost my mind, I freaked and threated to kick her butt if she didn't spit it out.(first anxiety attack followed) My parents thought I was crazy seen everone there is to see and nothing helped.

Well I am 41 years old today and still seeking help. Went to a Hynotist with also no help. It gets worse with age and thank God for Ipods and MP3 players. This is the only way I found that helps.

Therapy Psychiatry Hynotist nothing and even the med's offer no help. Be careful because mine has lead me to hate crowded situations,panic attacks,and severe hyerventilation. I would love to ride a bus, attend school or even see my childrens concerts.

Being this way sucks and I will do anything to make it go away. If you find one please let me know.
thanks for reading
