What are the Symptoms of a Fear of Thunder and Lightning?
At home a person with a phobia of thunderstorms may seek shelter under a bed, in a cupboard or the corner of a room during any rainy or overcast weather. They may obsessively listen to the weather forecast and keep a watch full eye on the sky. If they have to venture out they may experience sever anxiety at the possibility of being caught outside in a storm. If the sufferer has to be away from home – such as at work, their whole day may be distracted if they fear there will be a storm when they have to travel home.
How Does a Fear of Thunder and Lightning Start?
It is said that we are only born with two fears - the fear of heights and the fear of loud noises. Many children shy away from balloons due to the expectation of them bursting and children frequently have a fear of thunder storms because of the loud noise of the thunder and the extreme phenomenon of the lightning. This accepted, fear of thunder and lightning is a phobia that is frequently inherited; this means that the sufferer has learnt this fear or the fear escalated to a phobia from experiencing someone else’s fear. In other words if everyone remains calm or positive towards the Thunder Storm while a child experiences it, the child will usually process the fear and ultimately react towards it without fear.
