Atomosophobia: The Fear of Atomic Explosions

Atomosophobia is the abnormal and persistent fear of atomic explosions.  This has become a fairly common phobia.  Everyone feels some fear at the thought of atomic explosions, but those with Atomosophobia let this fear control their lives.
A phobia is a strong, persistent fear of situations, objects, activities or persons.  The main symptom is an excessive and unreasonable desire to avoid the feared subject. Other phobia symptoms include shortness of breath, irregular heartbeat, sweating, nausea, and an overall feeling of dread.  Phobias are the most common form of anxiety disorders.
