Onion Phobia

I can’t even take a look at onion and garlic. I can’t bear with their smells and can’t touch them. Since I’m getting married soon, I am afraid because I don’t know how to cook for my husband since I can’t even touch the onion. No one knows about my problem. I need help how to get rid of this phobia.

A:  It sounds as though you are experiencing what is called a specific phobia. There are treatments that can help with this. I encourage you to seek the help of a mental health professional; particularly someone who specializes in this kind of work. Best of luck to you.
