33 and still afraid
by: Anonymous

Im 33 and have had "open door fear" as long as I can remember. I have been diagnosed with major OCD so I have just determined that it may stem from that. My OCD is uncontrollable and I guess the door being open is just something that I will lay there and obsess about until I literly get up and make sure it is closed tight (I mean slam it so I can hear it latch) but I do also fear the shadows that come from an open closet door,linen closet,coat closet exc. My kids think I'm Crazy lop

Fear of closet doors (whether their open or closed and a minor fear of the dark)

Same thing here. Many people online have said it could maybe be a mixture of Claustrophobia and Achluophobia. It's sort of a relief to know that I'm not just some insane teen that has seen too many horror movies. My panic attacks have often left me not sleeping for days and not eating for five days at the most. Some nights I come from under my covers and freak out so much when I see that dreadful closet door. That closet door scares me so much!
