Autophobia (Fear of Being Alone)

Dr. KennedyAutophobia is a persistent fear of loneliness, of being alone. A fear of solitude. Sufferers from autophobia may experience anxiety even though they realize that being alone does not threaten their well-being. They may worry about being ignored and unloved, or they may worry about intruders, strange noises or the possibility of developing a medical problem. Autophobia also has another sense, that of an irrational fear of oneself, intense self-fear that s groundless. Then there is another meaning – fear of automobiles (just kidding).
