“There would be no one to frighten you if you refused to be afraid.”
-Mohandas K. Gandhi

One of the topics discussed in a nursing psychiatry class is about phobia. A phobia is an anxiety disorder characterized by obsessive, irrational, and intense fear of a specific object, an activity, or a physical situation.

The irrational fear usually results from early painful or unpleasant experiences during childhood involving a particular object or situation especially.

I asked my students to list down their phobia and these were what they mentioned : fear of height (Acrophobia), insects  (Acrophobia) such as coach roach and spider (Arachnophobia) , snake, fear of darkness (Achluophobia) and being alone (Autophobia) , fear of death (Thanatophobia) and dying were the most commonly mentioned phobia. Two students said they fear dogs (Cynophobia) due to a previous  dog bite. A student said he is afraid of clowns (Coulrophobia) because of the color of their faces.

Based on my experience with my patients I have dealt with for the last 15 years, the needle (Aichmophobia, fear of needles) and syringe used for intramuscular injection is a common source of fear. The mere sight of the injection created anxiety especially among male patients. In a private hospital for children where I attended training, nurses were discouraged in wearing an all-white uniform because this gave rise to fear of nurses or doctors among pediatric patients.

      Read this article about fear among children.

My fears? I fear snakes since I was a child, but lately I fear heights and closed spaces (Claustrophobia).  I believe that as one gets older, you become fearful of a lot of things.

Sex education. Let’s talk about it.

When was the first time you learn about how your body works? At what age were you able to know the answers to the following questions : Why am I menstruating ?  Why am I perspiring a lot and I don’t smell good ? How do girls get pregnant? Mom and Dad didn’t say anything about these things. Where do I get to know these things?

Sex education. Lets talk about it.


“Maabilidad na P-Nay, Malusog na Nanay!”


By virtue of Presidential Proclamation no. 569 in 2004, March 10 of every year was declared as the “Pambansang Araw ng mga Buntis.” This year’s theme centers on “Maabilidad na P-Nay, Malusog na Nanay!”

This year’s celebration will attempt to set a Guinness World Book of the Largest Pre-natal Class (multiple venues). In a pre-natal class , mothers are given information on how to have a safe pregnancy and the Do’s and Don’ts in pregnancy.
