  • Taking new medications, because I have had such serious side effects and reactions to medications since I was quite young. I think it is natural to be very cautious/phobic about new meds now, but it gets in the way if a doctor wants to give me a shot or prescribes new medication for me and I have not had the medication before.

PS poeple, I'm not trying to be funny here, I really am afraid of really pious christians, so if this offends you, then I apologize.
  • I am afraid of red lights and persistent beeping noises because I become paranoid and feel like I am being watched. Seriously. I mean, I'll turn off/unplug the dvd player or radio or playstation or anything with a red light on before I decide to stay in the room. Also vomit/ing. I hate when people throw up. I have no compassion for them whatsoever. If someone is about to throw up or keeps complaing about it, I tel them to hurry up and go to the bathroom. If I see it or see someone doing it, I start to break out in a sweat and get a faster heartbeat and all that. It seriously scares me out of my mind.

I cannot get on top of building and look out over the edge, I will freak out every time. Even if I see one of those things on TV where the camera makes it look like you are in the plane and it goes over the edge of the Grand Canyon, or over the buildings in a city, I cant watch it. Forget climbing a ladder or getting on the roof. I will fly in a plane, but I keep my eyes closed the whole flight. If I close the window shade it helps, but not much. I guess that is goofy,, but I cant help it.
  • I can't stand people touching my neck. I swear I have nearly broken fingers from clamping them down so hard between my head and shoulder! For some reason, I have serious issues about touching other people's eyeglasses--not sunglasses--but regular glasses. It just freaks me out and I can't do it. Yes, I know I'm weird.

  • im scared of dieing in my sleep, it takes me forever to fall asleep
  • Butterflies/moths/flying insects in general, but especially Butterflies. Also jumping insects; grasshoppers, crickets, spiders that jump. Birds (though not to the extent of flying insects). If it's flappy or hoppy, it terrifies me.
  • being underground in the subway. which kinda blows, since i live in NYC and get everywhere by public transportation.. i take the bus most of the time, but to get to manhattan (from brooklyn) i take the train. when im actually IN the train, its not so bad. its the waiting on the platform that freaks me out.
  • getting bit by a brown recluse spider. spiders, all of them. I have a big problem with them.

  • open windows and hallways.
  • its a little common but being scared to death of bee's boy do i hates me some bees
  • Hydrophobia. I can't get into a open body of water. I remember going to a party where my hockey coach was drunk. He took us all out on his boat and we went belly boarding. I took a spill and was left there for over a half an hour, with no sight of land and nothing around me but the ocean. I was in the ocean for a half an hour. A lot of things go though your mind. You begin to see things, feel things as you're dreading water. I threw away the belly board and lifevest. I could swim then, and I wanted the best chances that those other things would be targeted first. To this day, I fear going into pools. I don't go swimming and I don't visit the ocean. But the funny thing is, I fear being dirty. So, I wash my hand with hot water and soap, a lot. I take two to three showers a day. I guess you could say that water is my best and worst enemy. And if you think this was painful? Check out the question, "what hurt you the most?"
  • I'm terrified of alleyways because the sight of them has a strong link to being attacked at night. My sister is terrified of clingfilm!! Seriously! She makes us peel it off bowls and things cause she can't bear to touch it.

  • im scared of dieing , spiders, people watching me when im getting dressed & terrorists & murderers .
  • The weirdest phobia I have is of low ceilings and small spaces like closets. But mostly low ceilings because I feel like the ceiling is coming down on me. I also have a phobia of things touching my neck. Including turtle neck sweaters. I would rather be cold than wear a turtle neck. This may be due to the fact that when I was four I wrapped the cord from a window blind around my neck and jumped. I didn't tie it right (fortunately) so it just zipped across my neck and I fell on the floor. My mom came in the room just at that moment. I saw someone lower themselves with a rope tied around their tummy in a cartoon and the cord didn't fit around my tummy so I thought my neck was the next best place.
  • butterflies. no lie.
  • Getting hit in the neck, sometimes when I think about it I think I feel my pulsing artery and it feels like somethings inside it.
  • I have an irrational fear of objects that are bigger than me in the water. Boats, bouys, even fish. Actually, especially fish.

  • i'd have to say i am fearful of losing my teeth!
  • fear of being reincarnated as a fence post.
  • Falling down the stairs. Unfortunately, about 3 years ago it happened. Now I am even more afraid of it. I didn't break any bones, but I did suffer a sprained ankle, sprained wrist, and damaged my ring finger on the left hand. I had to cut my wedding ring off, which I had never taken off. My knuckle on that hand is permanently damamged. My ankle and wrist gave me trouble for nearly 9 months.
  • I am actually afraid to swim in the ocean. Might have to do with the movie jaws back in the 70's, but I simply cannot do it.
  • I'm so scared I'll lose my beautiful girlfriend :( But I'm also terribly affraid of fast food joints spitting in my food!

  • I have several...like getting things like bugs and water etc stuck in my ear(s), which is kinda ironic since I'm a swimmer lol...also, looking out a window when it's so dark I can't see anything, or looking in a dark mirror...mainly cause I tend to see creepy wierd things in them... The wierdest one though (you're really really gonna laugh HARD)...is I used to have a somewhat phobia of the color yellow a few years ago...It's a long story, but to make things short I had a nightmare that I was chained to a wall in a yellow room and all of my family and friends were brutally slaughtered right in front of me...it was really grose and I almost cried every time I saw the color yellow. Now I'm fine, but I still get a bit nauseous and light-headed when I'm in a yellow room.
