    I have a phobia of making calls or answering calls, whether I know the person or not. If it is an important call, I can't think well and just make stupid mistakes ... like saying i can do something without confirming with my employer etc. Then I really stress and panic after the call too.
    Even if the phone rings at home, my heart beats faster and I try my best to avoid picking up the phone.
    How can I overcome this?
    Where can I get help?

    i think it's normal to get nervous during an important call and mess up so don't worry. but if you really think it's abnormal I'd suggest talking to your GP about it? It might be anxiety and you can get treatment for it?
