I had 2 extreme phobias: Hydraphobia and Acluaphobia (fear or water and darkness). I have overcome my fear of water and now LOVE it like no other. I have spent up to 7 hours in a pool. No lie! I am making some progress on overcoming Acluaphobia (fear of the dark), but I still haven't gotten very far. Really, it is more of being afraid of being alone in the dark. If I have pals with me, I am a little more okay. Let me tell you, though, if I'm in the dark with my dad, there is no fear anywhere in me. But if I am alone in the dark, I will literally go statue still and wait for someone to "rescue" me. Any clues on how to overcome this fear of mine? I have looked on the internet. Those aren't the best ideas. Any others? Thanks.
