I'm cured of my treephobia. I don't know why, but It's gone back to being just a tree.

The two become so closely associated in our minds, that just seeing that object or being placed back in that environment will elicit the anxiety response. Does this sound like what has been happening for you?

If I am not on medication, it is only a matter of time before my panic disorder sets in. On medication it has been completely controlled. Understanding what is going on has helped me a great deal as well.

I think you're absolutely right, as the first time I freaked out over it I was about to have a panic attack; I was driving past it and was absolutely sure I was hallucinating it. But the fear began just BEFORE I saw the tree.
