What is the fear of the wind called?
From time to time the wind can be that strong that anyone can get scared of it. But some people have a mental disorder, which makes them constantly afraid of the wind. This fear is called ancraophobia. No one is born with such a disease, as it's usually the result of some psychological trauma or negative experience. People who suffer from this phobia tend to be frightened by changes in the weather, such as storms. They are likely to believe that the wind has the potential to kill and destroy. Additionally, they avoid things that remind them of wind, like ocean waves. Ancraophobia, as many other unusual phobias, may be treated and controlled.
