ALUMAPHOBIA, Newly discovered diagnosis
I just couldn't do it. As hard as I tried, as much as I wanted to, I just couldn't. So like any reasonable individual, I sought professional help. It didn't help yet, even with medication, although I haven't tried everything yet. But I did find out what I have:
ALUMAPHOBIA; The intense paralyzing fear of drilling a hole in the skin (inside or outside) of your Airstream.
Symptoms include cold sweats, nausea, nightmares, free floating anxiety. My counselor even thinks there may be a Medicare reimbursement code. More on that later. I know there are others out there. I've even read their posts. Maybe it's time for an ALUMAPHOBIA support group.
