    Butterflies. They look just gross to me.

    Also, creepy as hell....... But it could've been the spongebob episode about the butterfly in the bubble. I saw it at a very young age and it might've been that that left an inpression. :/

    Pedophiles In Funny Costumes

    When I was 2 years old, I grew my kind of hatred for mascots and I kinda grew a fear for those too. It all started when we went to one birthday party, (I don't know my age here sorry!) and I was just watching the other children play and have fun when suddenly it was time for the...

    Deep Water Freaks Me Out

    I have a phobia of deep water. I don't even know why, I've had it since I was little. I'm not scared of drowning. I'm not scared of being attacked by a sea creature. I'm just afraid of the deep-ness of it. I can't look at a picture of mostly empty water without freaking out and...

    I don't like to be touched at all.

    Everyone thinks it's a germ thing but it's not. Only those closest to me know why. I was tortured by my ex. I'm finally trying to overcome it after many many years. It sucks!

    I find porcelain dolls horrifying.

    Their black eyes seem bottomless and I feel like they're going to move or something.

    I have severe emetophobia (fear of vomit).

    I literally run away screaming when people start throwing up near me. And I actually convince myself not to vomit even when I'm really sick. I also have lilasophobia (fear of tornadoes). I could never bring myself to move anywhere with a high frequency of tornadoes

    Much to the amusement of all the kids I know I

    have been Globophobic since I was really young. Apparently it's not such a weird phobia as google tells me it's in the top ten of all phobias -but it can still ruin a bloody good party.

    Terrified

    I am terrified of snails, slugs, and worms. I don't even like to say the words themselves. If I see one, I'll stay far from it as if it could fly out to me and hurt me.

    that I am absolutely 'terrified' (more like unimaginably disgusted) by certain objects or foods. If I am in the presence of cheese, i literally cannot stand it. All I can think about it the cheese, no matter where abouts in the room it is or how far away. My mind gets consumed...

    Drains. Yep, drains. I'm ok

    when it comes to sink drains, bath drains etc. But drains in the street are a big no no. When I see a drain I always have the sense that I am going to clattering through it to my demise. I just don't like them. I always avoid a good drain. ******* drains.

    I am afraid of cigarettes.

    I've always been afraid of them since I was little. I sit, stand, look, or even touch one. It just freaks me out to the point I have to go home and take a hot shower.

    I am extremely terrified of electrical outlets!

    Like I cannot sleep until everything plugged into the wall is unplugged. I think this is because I heard a story about a boy who got shocked when he stuck something in an outlet and died. Like wow way to screw with my life, stupid curious kids -.-
