Let me tell you how Pyrophobia was for me...

    So Pyrophobia is the phobia of fire. I'm 12 and I overcame my fear of fire when I was 10. It was the best thing that could ever happen to me.

    So Pyrophobia isn't really that bad but it can still be scary for the person who is experiencing it. I could never sit at a table with a small candle on it and even birthdays were horrific for me. Until that day...

    I was 10 and in Year 6 when we went on a residential trip for 5 days to Wales. It was so fun! We went canoeing, treasure hunting, and I got to share a room with my best friends! It was going to be the best trip ever! Except I didn't know that the trip would be ended with a surprise...
    A campfire...

    So on the last day it was nighttime and we had to sit on some logs surrounding a place where the campfire was going to take place. We found some twigs and sticks to put in the fire and to put our marshmallows on as well. Then it was time to light the fire. I was shaking and shivering. I was sweating and squealing when my friends lit the fire with some matchsticks. When the fire was lit I put my marshmallow about 30cm away from the fire. It didn't do anything. Our instructor told me to put it closer to the fire. I was so scared I was about to pass out. I closed my eyes and directly stuck my marshmallow inside the fire. It didn't harm me at all! I was over the moon! I had finally overcome my Pyrophobia

    I would like to say thank you to my primary school for giving me this opportunity to overcome my fear of fire! I love you all very much! And I miss you too❤

Shadowheart Maybe research spiders in books. Research all about one that won’t hurt you, and all the reasons why. Then work up till you can look at a dead one. Finally your goal is to be ok with a spider near you.

Quizzy how can I overcome arachnophobia? One time I was at the YMCA and there was a spider on the wall. I screamed and couldn't move. It moved. I felt like I couldn't breath. I didn't feel safe from it if I was in the other room.

Hi so I scrolled all the way down and I found my other comment. In response to TheQuizzyAddict’s question, Arachibutyrophobia is the fear of having peanut butter stuck to the roof of your mouth!
P. S. I don’t actually have it, that was a joke lol
