Well That’s One Way To Overcome Claustrophobia

How did 23-year-old Kristy Nicholson go from severe claustrophobic to genie in a bottle circus performer? Oh, she had her mother stuff her into a cupboard every day. Kristy was a skilled contortionist with a dream of joining the Circus of Horrors, but her fear of tight spaces held her back until her mom had a brilliant idea. She would help Kristy overcome her fear by shoving her into laundry baskets, cupboards, and animal cages a few times a day. Once Kristy got used to the enclosed spaces, she began using her skill to hide in unlikely places and scare her family members. All the practice paid off and now she is able to squeeze herself into a two-foot by 18-inch glass capsule, but only after getting her appendix removed. And that, my friends, is one way to cure claustrophobia. [Daily Mail UK]
