Ok, maybe it's not a phobia, but possibly a HUGE hang up. Has anyone had the problem with nudity? What I mean is, have panic attacks knowing that "strangers" will be leering and jeering at your body that they have no right to be seeing anyway?
I experience major panic attacks when even talking about it and have found that it gets worse with age. Even if I am scantilly clad or otherwise hidden behind shear material, I am disgusted and humilated at the idea that certain "undesirable" individuals will see me vulnerable and haven't earned the right nor the trust from myself to see me in that state. I break down in shakes, feel light headed and even close to fainting at the very thought of this happening to me.
Does anyone else have any similar experiences? Have any of you overcome them? How? And was this something you have always had, or did this start after a tragic experience?
Thanks for your input...
