I Have A Weird Phobia

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 1,427 People

    I have this little thing called Misophonia,

    which makes me experience uncontroable rage upon hearing a everyday sound, which in my case is sniffling. Unfortunately for me, my dad has allergies and sniffles at a speed of 58times/minute, and I simply cannot concentrate on anything at home without earplugs and ear muffs. My...

    I'm terrified of door-to-door salespeople.

    I haven't always been afraid of them, but a few years ago I opened my door to a charming old man. He introduced himself, shook my hand, and began to make his sales pitch. I don't remember what happened after that or even what he was selling. The next thing I do remember is...

    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.

    Not really a "phobia"

    but I'm scared that I'll sit in front of a large group of obnoxious teenagers in the movie theater, and they'll put popcorn in my hair, or in the hood of my jacket.

    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...
