Good for you working on this! My kid and I love balloons. A friend of a friend recently said she doesn’t allow her kid to go anywhere where balloons would be, and it was the first time I’d ever heard of this phobia. But of course she framed it not as a phobia but as a messed up society she had to endure. So I’m really impressed with your response to it.
