Fear Of Crossing Bridges


Do you have a fear of crossing bridges?

Is it impacting your life negatively?

There is not one single cause that can be targeted as the cause of phobias, or fears. They can crop up anytime in your childhood or later adult years. What triggers one person may not trigger another person.

If you have a fear of crossing bridges you may also struggle with;

  • A Fear of Heights
  • A Fear That the Bridge Might Collapse
  • A Fear of Drowning if the Bridge Collapsed
  • A Fear of Not Being Able To Control Your Car on the Bridge
  • Fear That the Bridge is Too Narrow or Too Wide
  • Or A Number of Other Triggers That Can Set Off Your Fear of Crossing the Bridge

So, while it is true that some who experience this type of fear can also struggle with a fear of heights, in reality Gephyrophobia (pronounced JEFF-ri-o-FO-bia) can have many triggers that create a sensation of needing to protect oneself from impending doom or harm.

Reactions to Having To Cross a Bridge

  • “I don’t really feel like the bridge will collapse. I am afraid of the size and the daunting size of some bridges that scares me. I have trouble breathing, and my heart rate speeds up until my chest feels like its vibrating. It’s awful and very annoying at the same time because I have to go out of my way in some cases just to avoid them.
  • ””My fear of crossing bridges is related to a fear of heights (acrophobia), but the fear of bridges is much worse than my fear of heights.”
  • “I think I am going crazy; I had been driving over the Bridge for years without any problems, and then one day it just hit me, and I began to panic. Now, I’m afraid if I drive on the bridge and have a panic attack I will just stop in the middle of the road frozen.”
