We all have phobias - it's what life is about. I had a phobia about speaking in public. I worked on it, day by day, and I no longer was held back by the fear. People have phobias about all sorts of things. They aren't permanent. They are just a temporary mindset which can be changed.
Apparently snipe flies enjoy resting on daisy fleabane flowers, too. For some reason there are bunches out today.
