Hey everyone i have a super weird sounding phobia basically im scared of mascot costumes and any costume where i cant see what i define as a human silhouette under it. This means im terrified of santa clause impersonators and while i was younger this may have been cute now im an adult and its christmas and i still can have anxiety attacks (sobbing and hyperventilating) if i loose track of where one near me is because im scared theyll be next to me its really annoying people. does anyone have any coping mechanisms so i can go christmas shopping without being so scared because im just so tired of it

Hi,
Counselling may help work out why you have this phobia and how to control it.
