I've been afraid of clowns since I was toddler, I don't remember if I had bad experience with clowns, I even asked my parents if I had bad experience I might not remember, but they also said nothing, but they remembered that I was so afraid of clowns, even if I only saw clowns on TV. Last year I went to shopping mall, and there was a clown, I just saw him slightly and realized that it's a clown! I was panicked and almost run away, I totally forgot I was in a crowded shopping mall. I initiated to fight the fear and walk close to a clown the other day, but I could only get 5 feet from the clown, couldn't go closer. Does anyone suffer from this phobia too? Or any phobias?? Can you cure your phobias?

no i have not, some one tell me how to cure your phobia by fight the phobia every day. I mean if you scare with clown, you must see the clown at least once a week, but it will be better if a couple of day a week. but, I ca not do that..my phobia is very difficult to cure by that way.
