Syngenesophobia: The Fear of Relatives

Syngenesophobia is the abnormal and persistent fear of relatives.  We don’t always get along with all of our relatives, but some people are terrified of their relatives.  This can be caused by many things such as physical and emotional abuse.
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.
