    Over the years I have suffered various phobias and anxiety issues and I know how vital the support of my wife was during those times. I would be interested to hear how those living with phobia/anxiety sufferers cope with the everyday trials and tribulations.

    I would be extremely interested to hear the views of those living with phobia sufferers as well. As a phobia/anxiety sufferer it is easy to become selfish and put yourself first before everybody else. However, those living with phobia/anxiety sufferers do not always have the easiest of lives.

    Hopefully the forum can act as a sounding board for those living with phobia/anxiety sufferers and give them somewhere to talk to like-minded people in similar situations. The more both sides of the situation understand each other the better for all concerned.

    My view is that living with phobias/anxiety is a constant battle but a battle which can be won/controlled. Anxiety and phobias don't need to ruin your life - they are manageable.

    I have learned over the years that my best chance of tackling/controlling phobias/anxiety is to ensure I have plenty of rest and relaxation. My stress levels increase dramatically the more tired I am - simple but true.

    A relaxed home life and plenty of sleep are vital for anyone suffering from phobias and/or anxiety.
