Our expert says:
Sounds like a phobia, sam, and fortunately this is something nwhich responds very well to treatment. I'd especially recommend ( after a proper assessment by a good local shrink ) CBT, Cognitive-Behaviour Therapy, which will enable you to unlearn this fear. Phobias also respond quite well to medications otherwise also used to treat Depression, but as these can cause some mild nausea, they might not be ideal for your particular fear.
