The absolute top scorer is acrophobia (fear of heights), which 29% of respondents say they suffer from. A close second is (arachnophobia – spider phobia), which 18% of respondents suffer from. For almost all phobias, the majority of sufferers are women.

Some people develop ways to live with their fears on their own. For many others, the condition is so severe that they need help to overcome the fear.
Most people know the feeling of being really scared of something. But phobics experience anxiety attacks that are much worse.

“I couldn’t go to Netto or Føtex without getting a strong pressure in my chest and a severe headache. At the same time, everything became chaos in my head,” says Jeanette Scherer from Copenhagen, who suffered from social phobia.

She couldn’t be in crowds of more than 3-4 people without panicking. Gradually, she also developed a fear of anxiety. For six months, she was unable to drop off and pick up her son from daycare without having an anxiety attack.

Childhood experiences and a rape at the age of 19 are probably the reason she developed her phobia, which she has now learned to live with.
