This Is What I Fear #7 - Dystychiphobia

Having the thought stuck in your head that your actions will cause an accident is devastating, and that's what people with Dystychiphobia have - the fear of accidents. 

Even though it's common for people to have the fear of accidents, Dystychiphobia is not so common and causes panic attacks and a lot of distress. The cause of this fear is not known as well as some other fears, most who suffer from Dystychiphobia have experienced an accident early in their childhood and are suffering from PTSD.  Even though it does not affect most people in all aspects of their lives, caution should be taken while driving or doing duties that can risk lives. If Dystychiphobia is left untreated, it can cause you to lose control of yourself and harm yourself and others so seeking medical attention early on is a must.


Accidents are going to happen as they are unavoidable, focusing on the positives rather than the negatives and understanding that the situation is just a small part in your story might help you out. This phobia is highly treatable so please get attention if you suffer from it. Good Luck!
