    Omphalophobic

    Omphalophobia. It's a rare phobia, but as it seems, I have it. It's not that belly buttons scare me, it's the mere sight or thought of someone touching one. When I was younger I had the fear if I touched my belly button I'd become undone and all my innards would fall out and I'd...

    I am not but my sister is.

    She has omphalophobia. She almost started crying as I explained how I clean my bellybutton. She's fifteen years old and has never touched her bellybutton. Very strange and irrational. She knows it is irrational but doesn't care to cure it. I doubt it will keep her from...

    Why I'm Afraid Of My Belly Button

    When I was very young, I played with my belly button quite a bit. However, my fun soon came to an end. My father, observing my fascination decided to tell me a story. He told me that if I touched my belly button too much, it would unwind and all my guts would fall out. Not...
