Read the text and answer the questions. (20 pts)
Do you have a phobia?
Are you terrified at the thought of getting on an aeroplane? Do you worry about spiders every time you go into the bathroom? Would you rather walk up 100 steps than get into a lift? If the answer is ‘yes’ to any of these or similar questions, you may have a phobia!
If you have a phobia, don’t worry. You’re not alone. It’s estimated that about 10% of the world’s population have a phobia about something. The fear of flying, the fear of heights, the fear of being in closed spaces or being in open spaces are some of the most common phobias people have. However, there are hundreds of other unusual phobias too, which are just as bad. Did you know that some people have a fear of clowns? Can you believe that some people are afraid of fish and that others are scared of garlic? Then there’s the fear of falling in love, the fear of rain, the fear of the moon, and the fear of the stars! The list is endless.
For most people, who don’t have phobias, these ideas are difficult to understand. Even people with phobias usually know that there’s no real danger. However, they cannot control their fears. When some people think about the object of their phobia, their heart starts beating very quickly and they find it difficult to breathe. This is a natural reaction to fear, but it can make life difficult if it happens all the time.
So if you have a phobia, what can you do about it? In some cases, you can simply avoid the situation. If you have a fear of heights, don’t climb a mountain! However, in other cases, it’s not so easy. What can you do if you’re terrified of vegetables? Some people try relaxation techniques such as yoga or meditation. Some find that physical exercise can help. Others change their diet and stop having alcohol, coffee, and other unhealthy things. Many people find writing about their phobia helps them understand what is happening to them. But if none of these ideas helps you, go and see your doctor. He or she may suggest psychotherapy, or even hypnosis.
