Exhibiting a Fear of Very Long Words is More Common Than You Think

Have you ever heard of Hippopotomonstrosesquipedaliophobia? Do you know what it means? As it turns out, this condition is more common than you may at first think. It’s the fear of being confronted with very long words. This is a condition that strikes fear into the hearts of people who have been afflicted with such conditions as anxiety or dyslexia but it goes even deeper than that. Suffering from this very real phobia could cause severe issues in your life that have more to do with than just a fear of long words. There could be issues here that you aren’t even aware of.

Having a Phobia of Very Long Words Could Be a Sign of Trouble

There are many ways in which having a phobia of very long words could be a sign of serious underlying trouble. This fear could play out in a variety of physical symptoms which themselves may be purely the outward manifestations of a much deeper condition. Outward symptoms can take a number of forms. The most common is a sudden crippling sensation of extreme social anxiety or dread. You may experience rapid breathing or a suddenly noticeable shortness of breath. You may even begin to notice even more troubling symptoms, such as rapid and shallow breathing. Some extreme cases have been known to result in potentially alarming symptoms, such as palpitation of the heart.

Having a Fear of Very Long Words Can Be the Result of Several Factors

There are a number of underlying factors that can result in a person suddenly developing a fear of very long words. For example, people who regularly exhibit this particular phobia may suffer from a comparative lack of education. They may also have a history of suffering with a learning disorder, such as dyslexia. This fear may be due to a traumatic event that the sufferer underwent in childhood, such as a tragic accident or injury that was related to their inability to pronounce or comprehend some long medical term. Whatever the reason may be, the results are hard to deal with.

Could This Phobia Be Due to an Unresolved Emotional Conflict?

There are many experts who believe that the roots of this particular phobia may well stem from a subconscious overprotection mechanism. Think of the basic human “fight or flight” response. This phobia may also, at least in some cases, turn out to be related to some sort of unresolved and currently ongoing emotional conflict. The conflict may be bred into the sufferer by their parents or their experiences at school. Some form of peer anxiety, such as the extreme fear of falling behind the educational level and achievements of other students, may be at the root of this crippling social phobia.

Is There a Reliable Path of Treatment for This Disorder?

The phobia related to the fear of very long words is currently undergoing a sort of renaissance as far as the search for treatment is concerned. There doesn’t seem to be any sort of industry consensus as yet concerning any kind of approved treatment regimen. However, a great deal of research is now being filtered through in order to find a standardized treatment that may be able to finally bring this phobia under some sort of control. In some cases, a prescribed path of Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) has been seen as the ultimate source of recovery for this painful malady.

With Research and Treatment, You Can Conquer a Fear of Very Long Words

The main thing that people who suffer from a phobia of very long words can take away from this article is that, with the right course of research, therapy, and treatment, you can hope to one day conquer this crippling social phobia. While there is much more work to be done, signs are emerging that this condition will one day be subject to reliable diagnosis, correction, and preventative therapy. While the understanding of this phobia is still very much in the formative stages, there is plenty of hope that, in the future, no one will ever again have to live with a fear of very long words.

What To Eat For Morning Sickness

Morning sickness is a rough part of pregnancy. Especially if you are in the early stages of your pregnancy, you might really struggle with your morning sickness. However, there are a few tips you can remember to help you know what to eat and what not to eat for morning sickness relief. And for many who have experienced trouble getting pregnant, morning sickness can be a bittersweet feeling, assurance that you are indeed pregnant.

Bland Foods: This isn’t a time to try creative, experimental recipes, or spicy, exotic foods. Stick to bland, plain foods that don’t upset your stomach. Try crackers, oatmeal, or toast to keep your stomach from acting up, and save your exciting recipes for another time.

Mint: Mint has long been proven to help with tummy troubles. If your morning sickness is getting the best of you, try a peppermint, a cup of peppermint tea, or something similar that can help to ease your issues.

Water: Although not actually a “food”, make sure to get enough to drink in order to stay hydrated. Keeping hydrated will help your body to combat your morning sickness issues. Drink as much water as you possibly can, as there is not really a way to be “too hydrated” during your pregnancy.

Ginger: Ginger is a food that has always been associated with tummy taming properties. Try ginger ale, ginger snaps, or other ginger flavored foods if you are having an upset tummy moment.

Lemons: Much like ginger, this citrus fruit has been known to calm upset tummies, so keep some on hand when your morning sickness kicks in. You can eat them, or just sniff them to help ease your tummy during it’s troubling moments.
