10 – Astraphobia





Astraphobia is the fear of thunder and lightning. While some enjoy sitting at a window watching the rainfall, others will curl up n the closet sweating, and crying. Astraphobic people can become obsessed with monitoring weather and can develop a fear of leaving the house, known as agoraphobia. Many children are afraid of thunderstorms so further monitoring is necessary before diagnosing a child with astraphobia.
