Does anybody else not leave the house because of birds? I hate everything that flies, but birds are so common and everywhere im afraid im never going to be free of this ever, i dont want to be trapped in the house forever. Im 18 and it started to develop into a full blown phobia about a year and a half ago, but the fear has been there for about 3 years now. I have no idea what the cause could be, ive tried numerous hypnotherapy methods, all im looking for is for someone to relate to the pain of this, i cant explain how trapped and alone i am. I just dont want to see another frickin bird ever again i hate them so much. Nothing but anger and bitterness has come of this and i cant find anyone who can really relate. Its turned into agoraphobia, i dont leave the house in daylight and i think i have social anxiety which makes it even harder to leave at all. I just need someone to truly understand.
