Seems It’s Happened Again

Really and truly it’s inevitable, a phenomenon that is a true force to be reconned with each year, for I have turned another year older. For those of y’all unable to read between the lines or for those who can’t appreciate dramatic sarcasm, I had another birthday. I would first like to thank everyone who has reached out to me in the last few days with all the fantastic messages. For my good friend Rex who always brings a smile to my face I just wanted to share a big thank you. I don’t do allot of the blogging thing any more, for that I will apologize, but also cannot make any promises about the future.

Anyway, my birthday was very nice, went out to eat locally, went to my middle daughter’s house to open presents and have a piece of the cake that was her special creation, as she is the baker we all turn these days. I had requested a dark chocolate cake with recees peanut butter in the center and a white chocolate and cream cheese frosting, and I was not disappointed. I found the decoration to be absolutely hilarious, disturbing, but still funny as hell. For those of y’all unable to figure it out, it a representation of used toilet paper and turds or crap (tootsie rolls).

So, everyone can rest easy, I slid right in to 49 and I’m still kicking. Thank y’all so much for all of the greetings posted everywhere!

What is Parthenophobia?

Okay, so this is weird, right? Yes, I will just say yes for you, there, done, weird. But wait, there’s more, there’s an actual reason for me bringing up this very specific Phobia. So, I’ve mentioned before I play a stupidly addictive game called Trivia Crack, which on occasion has some truly bizarre multiple choice questions. Maybe y’all have seen it. It’s addictive, like crack, like the game name states. One of my recent questions was “what is the Phobia that is associated with the fear of virgins?”. Intrigued afterwards, I scanned my own list, found above, and was actually surprised that Parthenophobia was already in my very extensive list. But now y’all actually get to see a full definition. So, have a look, add it to your useless knowledge database, and then move on. And yes, I got the question right.

What is Parthenophobia?

Parthenophobia is the fear of virgins or young girls. The origin of the word partheno is Greek (meaning young girl) and phobia is Greek (meaning fear). Parthenophobia is considered to be a specific phobia, which is discussed on the home page. Parthenophobia is also related Pedophobia (fear of children) and Ephebiphobia (fear of teenagers).

What are the causes?

It is generally accepted that phobias arise from a combination of external events (i.e. traumatic events) and internal predispositions (i.e. heredity or genetics). Many specific phobias can be traced back to a specific triggering event, usually a traumatic experience at an early age. Social phobias and agoraphobia have more complex causes that are not entirely known at this time. It is believed that heredity, genetics, and brain chemistry combine with life-experiences to play a major role in the development of phobias. (Wikipedia – phobia).

What are the symptoms?

As with any phobia, the symptoms vary by person depending on their level of fear. The symptoms typically include extreme anxiety, dread and anything associated with panic such as shortness of breath, rapid breathing, irregular heartbeat, sweating, excessive sweating, nausea, dry mouth, nausea, inability to articulate words or sentences, dry mouth and shaking.

Can I take medicine?

Medicine can be prescribed, but please note that these medications can have side effects and/or withdrawal systems that can be severe. It is also important to note that medicines do not cure phobias, at best they only temporarily suppress the systems. However, there are treatments for phobias, which include counseling, hypnotherapy, psychotherapy, and Neuro-Linguistic programming. Please click on the tab at the top of the page called “Treatments” to find out more information on these types of treatments.
