Phobias are extreme and irrational fears that interfere with daily
life. People with phobias have fears that are out of proportion to real danger,
and, while they are aware that their fears are not rational, they are not able
to control them.
Phobias are sometimes present with other conditions, such as panic
disorders and Tourette's disorder.
