Nyctophobia is a limiting and disabling disease characterized by a frenzied fear of the darkness. It is triggered by the mind’s disfigured perceptivity of what would or could happen when in a dark environment. Although nyctophobia is a morbid fear of night or darkness a lot of people suffer from a mild form of it in which morbid fear is replaced by a fear or dislike.
