    A long time ago I had a phobia that I was too embarassed to admit having, and still am (therefore I will not say what it was). I admitted to having this phobia when I was nine years old, after having a nightmare about it. When I admitted to having this phobia, I dreamed about it again, but this time when I woke up, my phobia was gone and has not returned since. I am wondering if anyone else overcame a phobia that they had by dreaming about it.

    Have you ever had a phobia that you overcome at all?

    Hi hun, I never left my house from 2004-2008. I couldn't leave. It was a nightmare. I started drinking every day. Bear in mind that I am only 24 now. Eventually I did leave the house and I can only put it down to medication. My G.P knew about my condition but was not very helpful at all. No psychiatrist would give me a house call. But I mostly put me overcoming my phobia down to this forum and the support I received here, so basically medication and support from here. :)
