So I have a morbid fear of mice, rats, any rodent really. Not just a fear though it's worse the thought or even sight of a picture raises my heart rate and puts me under immediate anxiety. This usually isn't an issue, but it's winter and we have mice in our house. I saw one in my room today. I flipped out. now I can't sleep. Hell I can't even get up to go to te bathroom.
Could anyone tell me what todo? Would a psychriatrist help at all? This is terrible.

If even the very thought of mice terrifies you and impedes your ability to live normally, you may have a specific phobia of rodents (musophobia). There are very effective therapies for phobias.

look how cute he is! how can you be afraid of that cute little guy.


and yes a psychiatrist would help, that's their job. this is an irrational fear (phobia) any therapy usually helps these a lot.

Bring the elephants in to sort the problem. Oh wait..

Well apparently the best way to overcome such a thing would be to be in the vicinity of said rodents & maybe hold them for awhile and such. I used to be very arachnaphobic[sp?] but it slowly eased off over awhile when I just let a spider stay in my room instead of panicking and killing it. It's no doubt a really hard thing to do though. It'll either work or it won't.

I don't have any phobias so i can't relate, so instead of calling you a pussy i think therapy would be a good choice it it really starts bothering you. That shit wouldn't go away a therapist could help get over or lessen the fear.

Other than that i suggest that yer grow sum ballz and man up, bitch.

Ha...I just watched Patch Adams the other day, and you remind me of the guy in the mental hospital who hallucinates squirrels that are trying to get him, so he doesn't leave his bed.


That was completely irrelevant, but kind of relevant at the same time. If that makes sense

Would a psychiatrist help at all?
As someone who's the son of a psychiatrist, I feel qualified to answer this. The answer is yes. Many of my dad's patients have phobias like this. They talk to my dad, get some lil pills, and proceed to live normal lives (as long as they stay on their prescription & don't get drunk/high often). So, schedule a visit to your local shrink. Most of em are actually quite good.

So, yes, there's lots a psychologist might do. But go to a psychologist first, not a psychiatrist, as the former can't prescribe you pills that are probably not worth the side effects for this, making it much more likely for the latter to be a lazy ass who does so.

then it will get loose, contract herpies and bite you while you sleep...

It takes one hundred mice to harm one human severely.


However, it takes one human to obliterate one hundred mice.

Like batman is a more fear inspiring concept.
