    I'm Afraid Of Bagpipes.

    Yeaaaaah. There's just something about the wau they lie there, lumpy and furry with tubes sticking out of it. I'm getting creeped out just thinking about it. I'm also deathly afraid of all types of physical diseases, even though mental diseases fascinate me and I study them...

    I'm a chef and I have a phobia of being locked

    in the freezer. Maybe it stems from the film "Shallow Grave".

    Halitophobia

    Yes. That's my weird phobia. If you don't know what it means, search on Google. Anyway, here you go. When I was a child I didn't like to brush my teeth at all. My mum didn't force me so I didn't do it for years. Of course, now the problem is solved, I have no problem at all with...

    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'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...

    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.

    I have a phobia of dogs.

    Even adorable dogs scare the life out of me. Big dogs, little dogs- pretty much all dogs. When a dog comes near me, I either stop whatever I'm soon and freeze or run away as fast as I can.
