Casadastraphobia led me here

I'm new here today. I googled my fear of falling into the sky to discover it's not just me being a freak but a real thing that has a name, casadastraphobia. I'm thrilled to know that and learn more about it and talk to others with it. I also have DID, PTSD and agoraphobia. Looking for current information about all of these.

Welcome to the forums! I'm not diagnosed but I most likely have OSDD due to having alternate personalities which is somewhat similar to DID and PTSD since several doctors think I show symptoms of that. I have heard of casadastraphobia before since sometimes I just like to look up phobias as there seems to be so many and you're definitely not alone in having that even though I don't have that myself (though I do have a fear of heights/falling and that can be near paralyzing).

This is the first time I have heard of your phobia. Have you tried jumping up and down outside (calmly) as a way of confronting and overcoming your fear?

No, unfortunately I'm disabled and can't jump but that's an interesting solution. I've tried looking at the sky many times in an attempt to face the fear and calm the panic but that doesn't work. The challenge is that my brain knows that the sky is an illusion and that beyond the blue is deep, infinite space. This is why cloudy days work well. They put a cap on infinity and return the sense of gravity to my body. Thanks for responding.
