Let us find out about the top 10 strangest phobias that you probably didn’t know about. When it comes to hearing news, what almost all people suffer from is a fear of hearing bad news. What they fear is hearing good news. This is a non-specific fear for some unknown evil. It is vague and persistent, but it is not registered in medical references as a type of phobia. But, not the Euphobic people. This fear arises from a person’s previous disappointing experience, following a good news that fell through. There are also some people who thrive in the chaotic and negative aspects of life.

  • It's dated, but still helpful

  • My review of the book The Good news about panic, anxiety, and phobias by Mark Gold. I found this book easy to read and covers a broad range of anxiety disorders. Right from the start though I was wishing for the "good news". Of course the good news is that anxiety disorders are the number one mental health problem among women and are second only to drug and alcohol abuse among men. I wish it gave the good news earlier in the book as it takes some reading to discover this news. He points out that its not your fault and that your condition can be treated and in many cases cured. Even if you haven't responded to treatment in the past don't despair, In reality, its not the patient that fails the treatment but the treatment that fails the patient.
    On one page he supplies a checklist of anxiety symptoms, he states that most panic and anxiety have physical causes. Then goes on a soapbox on the shortcomings of psychiatrist in the diagnosing of anxiety. When we get to page 35 we begin a definition of the terms used in the book:
    PA - Panic Attack Phobias GAD - Generalized Anxiety Disorders OCD - Obsessive Compulsive Disorder PTSD - Post Traumatic Stress Disorder AD - Adjustment Disorder
    When we get to chapter 6 we finally start getting into possible physical causes that can present symptoms similar to those of anxiety.
    The book has a listing of state-by-state experts and sources and bibliography although again most of the works seem to be from the 80's so more recent data should be available. If you need to come up to speed its not a bad book but if you need a more in depth discussion this is probably not the book for you. That along with it being 10 years old make it a ok book if you find it discounted, but you could probably find more recent data for the same buck.
