I have an absolutely horrible fear of birds (especially big birds, which I can't even think about).

It used to be bad, that if I saw a bird anywhere near me I ran/scared/sweating/heart beating/very scared etc. But now, even the thought of a bird scares me, and even if i'm inside I need to watch my back. I can't even keep a window open.

I can't sleep at night incase a bird breaks in, or I wake up and a heron is there. I think it's about time I get a solution for it. I'd really like some advice on how to get rid of this phobia that is wrecking my life.

EDIT: How much does a "therapist" cost. I'm hesitant because they count phobias as mental illness, which is just gay in my opinion.

EDIT2: Most people with phobias admit that it is irrational. I honestly believe that birds are very frightning and people are just lying if they say that their harmless.. So it's probably going to be hards to cure. I see my fear as rational.

You need to watch Birdemic.

Ornithophobia- The scientific name for the fear of birds.
Maybe you should go to a therapist.....I mean if you are that terrified.

Lock yourself in a room with 37 canaries, 8 parrots, and 2 seagulls. Play "The Birds" on a TV. Tape your eyes open. Administer electric shock to testicles every time you start to feel hesitant.

Why do I imagine you searched in google "big bird' trying to find a picture of a huge bird to scare TS but then you saw a pic of Big Bird and say "Meh, that'll do "

confront your fear head on. Kill a chicken with your bare hands and cook and eat it. Even better use something big such as an ostrich or an emperor penguin

You have a phobia. Consult a therapist of some kind, they have treatment for these; and they're 100% effective. They WILL cure you of it, and it usually only takes about three to four sessions.

there's nothing to worry about. birds are just reptiles which are closely related to crocodiles, with the added capability of flight.



so cute!

I know a girl who is also terribly afraid of birds. I don't want to sound like an ass, but I always chuckle when there's a bird around her.

Well, everybody knows that the bird is the word!
A-well-a bird, bird, b-bird's the word

TS, ever tried a psychologist? It may sound strange, but they might have better ideas than the pit.

Once I couldn't sleep and I started hallucinating and I saw a humming bird in my room. It wasn't scary I just tried to catch it, but alas I couldn't.
all I ever wanted was to pick apart the day
put the pieces back together my way

I have a friend who is terrified of birds. Needless to say I did this when I was with him and some other friends once:




I started walking towards him and he started running.

hey man I don't blame you. Birds are fucked up. They can be pretty animals, but also somewhat terrifying. I was very uncomfortable for the majority of the Birds (the hitchcock movie)

In case you couldn't figure it out ts, no one here is taking you seriously. I don't take any pity, since you seem to believe 'gay' is synonymous with 'stupid'.

Lol. If insomniac's were called something less cool like "cock lords" or something I bet there would be significantly less people claiming to be it.
