Fear of Demolished Buildings

Okay, so this "phobia" that I have is really odd and I'm not sure that it counts as a phobia. Ever since I was about seven, I've had a fascination with and fear of collapsed/partially-demolished buildings. Every time I see one, I can't help but look and fixate all my thoughts on it. Because of them, though, I have a lot of trouble sleeping, and looking at them/thinking about them makes me feel physically ill. They also make me feel on-edge and jumpy all day.
Again, I have no clue whether or not this counts as a phobia...just wanted to get it off my chest. I've never told anybody before because I have no clue what to call it and saying "fear of buildings" sounds weird. :)

Sounds absolutely fine to me. I am disheartened to learn you suffer from this phobia.

They say immersion therapy can help with phobias. Maybe try to watch a lot of them on google and see if you eventually feel better.
