Each time I leave my place; I get the feeling that I would be killed while crossing the street.

Is this normal? Does anyone have these feelings/phobia?

I live in major metropolitan city and drivers here drive so fast in an impeteous dashy way. They are always on the go. Mind you I am also (HSP) highly sensitive person!

I swear that only when I pray before I leave my place, only then I can have that serenity and calmness. Prayers calm me down and keep my serenity!

Does anyone suffer from Steet phobia esp in main streets and big cities? I know if I lived in smaller more quiet place/city, this phobia will disappear.

Also the traffic lights are irrational/illogical in my area. For example, when the light for pedestrians is lit, you still find cars crossing the street and driving by. So tho it is the pedestrian's right to cross, yet the pedestrian has to watch out for those drivers passing by at the same time.

Can someone relate, identify...?

Any suggestions!

Thanks~Ras~

Hi, your feelings are justified according to your description of your phobia, but I think you feel they are a little to the extreme side? I guess how they treat phobias is someone goes with the person to experience first hand what they are afraid of and expose them to it and show them that nothing is going to happen and their fears are kind of irrational. In your case, I'm sorry, this is a hard one as you can be hurt by crazy drivers even if you are careful. I think talking to a professional would be the best suggestion.

I am afraid of going to the dentist, not the doctor, but the dentist. It is a long story what caused this, but I will have a panic attack. Deep breathing is what the dentist told me while he was working on me when I start to feel like this. Take in a very deep breath when you feel freaked out and hold it as long as you can...I brings more oxygen to your brain. I don't know if your fear is to this extreme or not, so don't know if this suggestion would apply to you.

Thanks Care for your care and concern.

I don't like dentists either. I think my street phobia is justified living in the busy area where I live. No wonder I have those neighbors acting out. However, these sounds are the enemey's sound and I should not succumb to them.

That's why I pray a lot b4 leaving my place. Prayers really help calm me down!!!
