What type of phobia is it ?
You've got to this page so I'm going to presume that you don't like or can't stand
to hear balloons being burst or even avoid being in a situation where that may happen.
So what are you going to do about it ? You could continue to live with it of course, but
I'm sure you would prefer to be more comfortable with balloons around.
Phobias come in all shapes and sizes and it is very important for you to be able to
try to define the kind of phobia you have because that directly affects your choice
of methods to use so that you can start to overcome it. I will talk about these methods
in a later page, but be aware that it's very easy to get nowhere with this if you don't
match up the cure with the actual problem - like anything else - it's difficult to fix
something when you don't know in detail what is wrong.
Balloon popping phobia can have many different aspects, so a single discipline,
such as psychology, is unlikely to have all the answers - sometimes the best we can do
is to have some idea of how little we know. I can't claim to be an expert - but then
I haven't found any experts in this particular field, so the advice and information in
these pages will be, by definition, incomplete, but I will be as helpful as I can
be, and I will add and change these pages in response to feedback and further
study - at the very least, you should find some ideas that will help you on
