Hi my name is Hope,

I have a question, I live in the city of Boston. We are supposed to have the best Hospitals & Doctors in the world, at least that's what they say. Well I suffer from several phobia's and they are getting worse, I have been to my own PC doctor, my psychiatrist, therapist and none of them seem to know what to do or where to send me to get help, so I decided to reach out to the forum.

My Phobia's are severe, which are ALL bugs and I think Mouths are the biggest when I see one, you see a regular mouth, but I see a bat.. Cats are another one, you see a cat and I see a tiger and how about the dark, I won't even take a shower in my own home at night, because it is dark outside, I don't walk thru grass or even sit in the park because of the bugs and the birds and squirrels. I have it really bad, I have left my own house several times because of a bug that got into my home. I have even slept in my car, with my teenage son & I forgot about Dust, I am scared of dust to the point I will walk around it or I won't look at it. This problem has taken over my life and I was hoping that someone out there knew of any suggestions or facilities in Boston that might be able to help me. I appreciate any thoughts or suggestions.. Thank you guys.

Hope

I think you need to look for a therapist who does deal with this.
