Methyphobia (from the Greek methy, "alcohol"), sometimes known as potophobia (from the Latin poto, "drink"), is a fear of alcoholic beverages such as beer and wine. Methyphobia sufferers would avoid consuming alcohol as well as being around someone who does.
Fear of alcohol has been classified as a phobia since 1987 when it was included in the DSM-5. Phobias are fears that cause significant distress or impairment in one's daily life. Alcoholic beverage phobia is not a mental illness by itself, but rather a symptom of another issue such as an addiction to alcohol or anxiety disorders. If you have methyphobia, talk with your doctor about any associated issues such as anxiety or alcoholism.
Cenosillicaphobia pronounced sen-no-sill-ick-uh-foo-foo-foo-foo-foo-foo-foo-foo-foo-foo-foo-foo-foo-f This fear can apply to glasses that do not contain beer, wine, or cocktails. Cenocervasiasillicaphobia, or the fear of an empty beer glass, is created by combining the Latin term for beer, cervisia. Illicit alcohol consumption causes more injuries and deaths than all other drugs combined. The "ph" sound in filialophobia is like the "f" sound in phobic, although it is not as severe.
Filialophobia is the fear of sons and daughters. The word was coined in 1869 by George M. Foster to describe his new disorder. He described it as a "neurasthenia affecting chiefly young women, characterized by a feeling of oppression in the chest, nervousness, insomnia, pallor, loss of appetite, etc."
The word cenosillicaphobia is the fear of glasses that hold only beer, wine, or liquor. This fear is based on history; prior to the 20th century, most people drank alcoholic beverages from crystal glasses. Today, most people drink their alcohol in plastic cups or bottles. However, some people are affected by this myth and believe that glasses that hold only beer, wine, or liquor must be full or there could be danger.
People with cenosillicaphobia avoid these types of glasses because they think there might be something wrong with them if they aren't full.
A persistent and unusual dread of pain. The fear is excessive, going above and beyond what is reasonable under the circumstances, resulting in an anxious reaction. Also called algophobia.
Algophobia is the fear of pain. It is not a normal part of human experience and can be very debilitating if not treated. Algophobia often develops into a full-blown phobia after several months or years. People with this disorder feel like they are constantly in danger even when there is no real threat present. They may avoid situations where they think they might need medical help because they are afraid they will not get through it alive.
Psychologists believe that certain people are born with a genetic predisposition to developing algophobia. This problem becomes evident early in life and tends to run in families. The symptoms usually begin before the age of 18 due to these genes' influence.
People with algophobia worry about many different things related to pain. They may have nightmares about being trapped in a place where there is no way out except through more painful means. Such as walking into a room where there is an electric heater turned on high, for example. These fears can cause them to hesitate before going into rooms where there are flames, or other sources of heat.
The dread of being buried alive. A phobia is an irrational dread that causes avoidance and terror. Phobias are a sort of anxiety condition that is rather frequent. There are several types of phobias, including arachnophobia (fear of spiders), claustrophobia (fear of closed in spaces), and taphephobia (fear of drowning). These fears can prevent people from doing things they need to do- like working at a job where they might be exposed to their feared object- or from going on trips or changing jobs because they think it will make the fear worse.
Phobias are very common. It's estimated that as many as 5% of the population may suffer from some type of phobia. Women are more likely than men to have a phobia. Young children often get phobias too; about 10% of kids under 11 experience a specific phobia. The most common types of phobias include:
Agniphobia - fear of death by drowning.
Albinism - fear of blindness.
Amazement - fear of falling.
Anthropophobia - fear of the human form.
Apotemnophilia - love of scars.
Monophobia is the dread of being isolated, lonely, or alone. It is also known as autophobia, isolophobia, or eremophobia. The term comes from the Greek words monos (single) and phobos (fear). Thus, it means a fear of isolation.
People with this condition are afraid of being left alone in an empty room. They will often go to great lengths to avoid such a situation. If someone does leave them alone for even a short period of time, they may have anxiety symptoms that can be quite severe.
Isolophobes feel like everyone else around them is happy and having a good time, while they're sitting by themselves thinking about all the things wrong with their life. Sometimes these people try to hide their feelings by not talking about them or suppressing them so they don't upset others. But because they feel so disconnected from other people, they end up suffering greatly.
There are several types of isolophobia: occasional, situational, generalized, and absolute. People who have occasional isolophobia experience anxiety symptoms when they are left alone but are not severely affected by it. Those with situational isolophobia suffer more severe anxiety symptoms when they are left alone but get over them quickly enough that no major problems arise.
The term "phobia" is derived from the Greek word phobos (phobos), which means "aversion," "fear," or "morbid fear." Phobias are fears, anxieties, or prejudices that have become excessive or irrational.
There are four main classes of phobias: animal phobias, social phobias, medical phobias, and natural environment phobias.
Animal phobias are fears of certain animals or other things associated with animals. These fears may involve danger - such as violence- or contamination-related concerns. Animal phobias often begin in childhood when children play together without adult supervision. If someone experiences an animal phobia, they may be unable to cope with possible triggers such as seeing a dog walking down the street or reading about animal attacks in the newspaper.
Social phobias are fears of one-on-one interactions with others. A person with this type of phobia might avoid going to parties because they're afraid they'll have trouble communicating with others or will make a fool of themselves if they try to talk to someone new. Social phobias can also lead people to avoid jobs or activities that require them to interact with many people at once.
