I have SEVERE Claustrophobia, to the point that I can't even close the
bathroom doors on airplanes :(

I've had this condition since I was a child, when my older ( and much
meaner ) sister locked me in a basement closet.

I cannot take elevators or even walk into a windowless room. Just the

While in college, one of my professor's wanted me to try hypnosis, but
when I found out that he would hypnotize me and make me get into an
elevator, I quickly declined the offer.
