Frigophobia: The Fear of Cold or Cold Things

Frigophobia is the abnormal and irrational fear of cold or cold things. Those who suffer with this phobia will bundle up in jackets and blankets even when the weather isn't cold.

Frigophobia can make it difficult to do things when the temperature is too low. This can make for a very long, hard winter. Those who have the phobia just can't function properly in the cold.

Some believe that it may be linked to hypochondria or obsessive compulsive disorder.

If you have Frigophobia please share your story. How does it affect you and how do you cope with this phobia during the winter?
