Writing Challenge: Invent a Word (Shadowphobia)

I was watching a You Tube video about children scared of their own shadow, suddenly this word came in to my mind, 'Shadowphobia'. That means some one scared of their own shadow. I am not sure is there any word for it already,

You can watch that video here:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BWKHzMPd2fY

Shadow|noun | '/ʃadəʊ/| ,Plural noun: Shadows – 'A dark area or shape produced by a body coming between rays of light and a surface'

I rang the door bell, I could see the shadow behind the curtains.

Trees cast long shadows in the park

Phobia|noun|'/fəʊbɪə/|,Plural noun: Phobias – 'An extreme or irrational fear of or aversion to some thing'

Lena had a phobia about spider

She suffered from a phobia about snakes

Shadowphobia| ʃadəʊfəʊbɪə| : Tia never go out in bright sunny days, due to 'shadowphobia'

One's shadow can be so scary, especially when you feel you're shadowed by some shadow.
