3. I think you are on the right track.

I've heard the best way to treat things like anxiety and phobias is direct exposure to that which is the source of your irrational fear.

When I was in college I had a lot of anxiety about public speaking, but I had to do it or else I would not have graduated. So I was forced to jump right into my fear. And let me tell you, it was damn scary to me at first. But with time and repeated exposure I became more confident and the fear subsided.
