Facing Phobias

My mom has been in the hospital for almost a week now and I've been staying here with her so I haven't really felt like writing. Since I've been here I've had to deal with one of my biggest phobias-Claustrophobia.

To put it simply I despise elevators and I've had to use them a million times already. They're small and I'm afraid I'll get stuck in one. Actually just today someone did get stuck in one. That doesn't help my situation at all. Taking the stairs doesn't help much either-They just prolong the period of time I have to deal without having windows to look out.

Another thing that is bothering me here is that my mom's room is tiny. It drives me crazy at night when the door is closed. I feel like I can't breathe. At least there's a big window though. There's no way I could handle it if there wasn't.

How do you deal with your phobias when you have to deal with them head on? Do you run or do you find a way to deal?

Let me known your thoughts on this and hopefully I will be back to my regular posting schedule soon.
