thankyou for taking the time to record this!

hi Jason, i’m clearly here for an obvious reason hah. i just wanted to say that i’ve listened to this a few times because my phobia has literally taken over my life and everyone makes fun of me – so far it has really helped. i’m yet to come across a child/toddler with a balloon which is the worst trigger for me as i’ve also got a severe phobia of loud noises so that’s where my globophobia is rooted from. i suffer from a lot of issues – i’m only comfortable saying that i have social anxiety and generalised anxiety – but you can imagine that it causes a very severe anxiety attack/panic attack when i’m stuck in a large crowd when there’s balloons near me. so i’m really hoping this helps me further. thankyou for taking the time to record this!
