Fear of loud noises (sudden loud noises) and latex balloons

Postby ScreamoChick » Sat Mar 01, 2014 4:32 am

I seemed to have developed an intense fear of balloons and popping as well as sudden loud noises or things like Thunder or fire alarms even when I know it's coming. I almost have a panic attack about 2 years ago when I was doing a Rue Goldberg in school for Tech Ed and people were using balloons. I knew they were gonna pop and had to ask my teacher if I could stay out because I couldn't handle it. People made fun of me and called me weird.

Is this weird? I remember going to an aunt's party years so and balloons popped everywhere and I got frightened and ran and cried. But at the same time it doesn't feel like it was real. I dunno if you guys understand what I'm saying but yeah.

I'm also afraid of balloons, not so much other loud noises but bring balloons near me and I'll run a mile, especially if people are blowing them up.

It's something I really want to get over but don't know how
