Phobia of ghosts

by Marco

I am 17 and have had this phobia of ghosts since I was a little kid. I think it started when my bro started watching Ghosts Hunters...I remembered the stories before the investigations always freaked me out. It got worse over a period of time. Ever since I was a little kid, I always felt like there was something watching me. At night, I always put the covers over my head in fear that I'd be a witness to an apparition or hear a voice that isn't coming from someone in the room. I even have to cover my head when I'm sneezing in the dark alone because I fear that a ghost will respond with "bless you" clue how that started. When I'm the only one in the house, I can't go upstairs because I fear someone will be waiting for me. I always have a feeling that someone is watching me when the lights are off. I just can't live like this anymore. I've tried to cope with it by shutting off the TV(I HAVE to have the TV on when I'm going to bed) but I just can't take the silence. I know there are people who have this phobia, but I still think its irrational because nothing's really there. And what strengthens it more? I live near two very old graveyards. I've had encounters before when I was little and that may be part of the cause also. So, any advice on any treatment?
