Explain your phobias..

Most people have the irrational fear of something. these fears sometimes don’t make sense but people are still terrefied.
These fears might be irrational, but they do make some sense. Let’s have everyone here explain their phobias and how they affect them and their thinking…

I have Claustrophobia – the fear of enclosed spaces. whenever i am in a tight space with limited ability to move, fear starts growing. the narrower the space, the more terrefied i become.
I am not afraid of caves generally, only when i need to crawl or move through a really small passage, the fear is even worse when i don’t see the exit.
The fear of somehow getting stuck or the tunnel getting blocked and i be stuck there forever, slowly dying from hunger and thirst while having no way to move freely.
Just the mere thinking about it makes my tummy feel funny…

so what phobia’s do you have?
(trolling is accepted only if done with good taste)

I don’t like bees. I used to be really afraid of them, but not so much anymore, although I still avoid them if possible. Not because someone put a cage full of them on my head à la Nic Cage, but because I fell into a beehive when I was on vacation in Vermont when I was 4.

My family has some strange phobias though. My mother is afraid of chewing gum (apparently Oprah is too), and my sister is mortally afraid of buttons. Go figure.

I have a fear of spiders and that is not irrational. Spiders are evil creatures and they will try to kill you when the opportunity presents itself.
look at this thing it just screams evil

Wow you actually hit my fear on the head with that photo, I hate holes in skin ever scene I saw this in school.
If I didn’t spend so much on my monitors, I wouldn’t stop till I had nothing but wrists.

I have Entomophobia and and Arachnophobia.

I was lying in bed one night, and I felt strange pattering in my mouth. I opened it, and about two small spiders and 3 flies were in there. Turns out our front door was open. I start to have palpitations whenever I see an an insect or spider.

(And yes, I’m not lying)

I don’t find this scary, just creepy as hell…and also very, very curious.

First image might be shopped but still, what’s it about? Some art piece?

Second image has to be very, very good movie-grade zombie makeup. There is no way that’s a real…fungus…coral…living creature growing out of the back of someones neck…

If it is real, that is freaking awesome! What is it? What is it? What is it? I must know! Tell me what to Google.

[edit]

Found the web page it comes from, but no commentary on it. I think its just really good makeup. When it comes to holes like that in the skin, I can only find discussion of cysts, but that ain’t no cyst.


Back on topic.

I’m not entirely sure what my phobia’s are. Spiders and public speaking don’t bother me that much compared to others

But I seem to be pretty anxious about riding on roller coasters. Takes me a hell of a lot of nerve to get on those things. Even when kids younger than me just hop right on the ride and go ‘WHEEE’, I tend to stand back and think of excuses not to go unless someone drags me on.

No idea why I get freaked out by rides that are for all intents and purposes, harmless as long as you follow the safety guidelines
