I have fear of loud noises, like fireworks, firecrackers, popping balloons, and people who yell and shout!!! You I can resolve this phobia?

A good working title for this would be crescendophobia, until a better term comes along.

Let me ask: If you had the balloon on your knee and you were about to burst it with a pin, and you knew - right down to the very second - when it was going to be burst by you, would you still have severe anticipation and fear about it, anyway?
