Phobias are a type of anxiety disorder where one has a strong, irrational fear of something that poses little or no actual danger. Discuss topics including social phobias, claustrophobia and treatment options.
Carpophobia is fear of wrists, veins, and arteries. Cardiophobia is the fear of the heart. Okay so I don't really scream when I see wrists, or have my heart beat faster and start sweating. I just get anxious. Like extremely. Once I started crying in the mall and it was so embarrassing. Also when I was in 7th grade we dissected pig hearts, but I didn't really mind. What makes me anxious about hearts is the beating. Argh I hate feeling/hearing pulses! Haha, so does this sound like carpo, cardio, both, or neither?
