    :blink: actually the post made about a fear of stars has prompted me to open up about a very embarassing fear of mine... i cant believe i am actually admitting this but i have a fear so deep of helicopters that it sets off major anxiety attacks and i need a sedative after one flies over the house, which it just has and that is why i am opening up about it.. the catch is they don't bother me to hear fly over during the daytime, its at night that this fear consumes me... :blink: the sound of one flying over the house causes me to panic and start pacing, my heart to beat out of control... very bad panic attacks over this... and i have had this since i was a little child.. now the other exception to this is if i am in the ER and i hear the helicopter land at the hospital that doesnt bother me it's only when i am in my own home at night.. i recall as a child watching and hearing military helicopters go overhead in formation at night..bright red lights on them and it terrified me even then... i would get sick over it.. couldnt sleep.. have nightmares.. i feel really embarassed about this... anyone else have a fear like this? or am i truly a freak for this paranoia... suggestions appreciated..

    :hug: hi that sounds really frightening

    can you remember what you thought they'd do to you? if that's comfortable to think about? they do sound very menacing.

    Was one of your family in the services? Or in a support staff job where the helicopters could mean they had to leave you?
    We all have our phobias, it just makes u normal, in my opinion.

    I have nightmares about helicopters but until recently the fear didn't come out in conscious life. Like most of my fears it's manageable and I make my self face it but there is one fear I won't face...not gonna write about it here though.
