Thunderstorms have consumed my life

hi,my name is joanne and have suffered from brontophobia all my life.Every day consists of studying the weather details in detail constantly throughout the day,if it says thunderstorms i have to put a plan in action,the plan maybe to go hang out at the local shopping centre or underground carpark,i cant hear it or see it there,or i beg someone to come over and im usually hysterical,if someone is here at the time,i will not let them leave.when it starts my kids get a blanket to put ova my head and go into a dark place inside me,ive recently got an ipod,which helps,though i might go deaf lol.

one day a storm was coming so i ran to the shopping centre but it beat me so i ran into this old ladies house hysterical and she refused me in and im begging her"you dont understand im scared help me" she thougt i was crazy.i have lots of stories how the fear has effected my life,im 39 and it gets worse as time goes on.
