Thanks for responding. I think I have read every book on claustrophobia. I have seen 3 different phycologist. If you would grade me on a score from 1 to 10, I would be a 10+. Can't do elevators, flying, bathrooms, back seat of a car unless I am next to the window. It is not just small spaces. I can't manage any place where there isn't an open door and then I don't trust that, thinking someone will close it. I need to see a dentist but I have been unable (never bothered me before) to have someone over me. Can't stand to be in pitch darkness. I am afraid to be "put under" with anaesthetics. The fear has controlled my life. I am so embarrased and few people know it. I can't do a lot of things with my friends because I am always wondering if I will be put in a situation that I can't handle. I know why I am this way, and have had it since around 5 or 6. What happens when I am claustrophobic? Like being buried alive. D.M.
