I've come a long way since I began suffering from Pyrophobia when I was 16 years old. It doesn't control me the way it used to and there's only certain times that it makes me stress out I guess you could say. I'm able to control it by making sure that I stay in control. I don't leave lamps on, Christmas lights or any appliance on when I leave the house and I periodically check everything around the house to make sure it's all working correctly. I'm cautious and I try to stay alert about everything. This is how I deal and some may still not understand, but I stopped caring a long time ago.
Do certain holidays trigger your phobias?
