    I'm terrified of mayonnaise.

    Just looking at it makes me want to cry. When I was little, this scene from Sponge Bob would come on and a giant jar of "mayoonnaiseee" would come on. And I'd cry and cry. I hate it so much. I'm also scared of spider webs. Spiders- not so much. Also-- pregnant woman and the...

    Ok I know this is going to sound silly,

    but I don't just hate grocery shopping. I am legitimately SCARED of grocery stores. Being in a grocery store to me is like being trapped in a giant maze from a horrible nightmare. My best friend calls it my 'Groceryphobia.' (even though it's not the actual groceries I'm scared...

    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 have Emetophobia. The fear of myself

    or other vomiting or being in the vicinity of vomit. Some people with this phobia even fear the word. I guess it's the 8th most common phobia but it's a strange one.

    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...

    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.

    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.
