    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...

    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...
