Text Preview Eisoptrophobia
There are many types of phobias but here is one that will surprise you, eisoptrophobia.
To start you are wondering what is eisoptrophobia, well I wondered the same thing it is “Fear of mirrors” (Fear not, 2001, 52). How crazy is that why would you be scared of mirrors. It would make since if you were extremely ugly and did not want to see your self because of it but that would not make you scared. Next, another reason why you could be scared of mirrors is a superstition. Sufferers experience undue anxiety even though they realize their fear is irrational. Because their fear often is grounded in superstitions, they may worry that breaking a mirror will bring bad luck or that looking into a mirror will put them in contact with a supernatural world inside the glass. (Definition of Eisoptrophobia, 2000). Other superstitions revolve around the idea of the mirror acting as a receptacle for the soul. Therefore, if someone dies, the mirrors in the house should be covered to prevent the soul entering the mirror ("Death and dying in central Appalachia: changing attitudes and practice", J. K. Crissman, University of Illinois Press, 1994). Third, The Romans were the first to make glass mirrors says Myrriah Lavin ("The Mirror," Obsidian, Issue 1, 2009). They attributed the seven years bad luck following the breaking of one to their belief that life renewed itself every seven years. "Breaking one's health," as it were, would not be remedied for seven years., " Obsidian, Issue 1, 2009). Even though, there are many different phobias this has to be one of the strangest.

Fear Not! For millions of sufferers, science is offering new treatments--and new hope.  (April 2, 2001). Time, 157, 13. P.52+. Retrieved October 12, 2010, from Opposing Viewpoints Resource Center via Gale: http://find.galegroup.com/gps/start.do?prodId=IPS&userGroupName=morrow
