Pamela Anderson EisoptrophobiaPamela Anderson Eisoptrophobia, Have you ever spend a day without seeing your face on a mirror? It’s hard to find. But some people are afraid of seeing themselves on a mirror. This is known as Eisoptrophobia or Catoptrophobia. Sufferers may fear of mirror for many reasons. Basically because of some emotional trauma related with mirrors. And some sufferers may fear mirrors out of low self esteem and avoidance of wanting to see and judge them that gradually builds into an aversion to mirrors even when the low self

esteem is gone.
In many country and creed it is granted that the breaking of mirror is a sign of certain bad luck. An individual may be a superstitious and believe that there is a connection of supernaturalism with mirror. Celebrities like Pamela Anderson have Eisoptrophobia. She is actually scared of her own reflection and also hates seeing herself on television. Pamela Anderson as once having said in an interview: “I have this phobia – I don’t like mirrors, and I don’t watch myself on television. “If anything comes on, I make them shut it off, or I leave the room.”
The symptoms of Eisoptrophobia are like having
Irrational fear of mirrors
Feeling of dread, panic and terror.
Rapid heartbeat
Shortness of breath
Extreme avoidance measures taken

When the fear become intense and dislocate the daily basis then there are some techniques to get rid of it. These can include

The talk therapy which will help a person to identify and control the phobia.
Self-help techniques.
Support groups with other people having this phobia.
Desensitization therapy
Sometimes this fear can become so intense as to halt a person’s ability to maintain daily functioning. Unchecked, Eisoptrophobia can become a debilitating condition that interferes with the individual’s social life, their personal life and their job responsibilities. Untreated, Eisoptrophobia can impact every aspect of a person’s life. If the phobia is out of control then one should consult with a psychotherapist. Maybe the person dealing with this phobia was frightened by the childhood stories and dares to stand in the dark while staring into a mirror. Of course, Hollywood horror movies have done little to minimize the eisoptrophobic individual’s fears.
