Living with anxiety, panic disorders or phobias can make you feel as though you don't have full control of your life. For the uninformed or those delusionally self-absorbed, there is little question that we are absolutely not in control.

Life and aging often resemble bouts of insomnia laced by dreams that spiral beyond our grasp. An attempt to command and control our chaos is laudable but largely illusionary. Since statistics confirm that none of us ultimately escape life alive, one of our best coping mechanisms is to substitute humor for terror, correctness and emotional paralysis. This tactic becomes a sound Fair Trade Exchange policy and is complimentary priced.

Our phobias and obsessions may seem strange or unacceptable to others, but we have not invited them into our dreams or nightmares.

Many books, itinerate speakers and bloated self-help enablers stress the urgency of eradicating and eliminating our personal phobias and obsessions. Their explicit goal is to permit us to navigate life more proficiently and accomplish great achievements.

For many individuals, their greatest daily challenge seems to be what to eat for dinner. Should we achieve this vaulted goal of being fear free, how would we redistribute our time? Watch more streaming video?

"101 Surrealist Phobias and Obsessions" is an entertaining and disarming visual portrayal of some of our shared anxieties, desires, fears, terrors and insecurities. This 115-page edition is Marques Vickers' second visual portrayal of the demons, symptoms and influences that prompt neurotic and unexplainable behavior.

Radically changing your life can be a gut and wallet emptying process by employing a therapist. Understanding your unique distinctions however may prove a more beneficial phenomenon with a more modest sticker shock. One day, clinical research and pharmacology may cultivate the perfect blueprint for healthy living. In the meantime, we glimpse truth primarily through our dreams and intuition.
