I Have A Weird Phobia

    I am scared of birds.

    It is not the bird, itself, but the sound their wings make when they flap them. Heights are also a huge problem.

    The thick black lines they paint in the deep

    end of pools. I have a fear of touching them and I have no idea why.

    I have a phobia of polystyrene.

    The sound of it makes me want to scream and I can't touch it. I've started crying before when somebody was making it squeak as they moved it, it was very embarrassing but I can't stand it.

    I think one of the hardest things to explain to

    people is that I have telephobia, it kinda goes hand in hand with social anxiety. Many people say "just suck it up" But I seriously can't. Telephobia is the fear of talking on the phone. It's fine if it's my sister, dad, or mom. But anyone else, even other family, I just...

    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 am afraid of people

    who seek to view the world solely from their belief, while not allowing the same to be challenged. For them, if snow was really made from marshmallows, they would try to convince others to believe it without testing their belief. Some would even kill for it. #ilovescience...

    I'm a weird person so naturally I have a lot of

    phobias but my weirdest one is Laridaphobia. As weird as it sounds, I have an immense fear of seagulls... Not gonna embellish how it formed but take my word, if I see a seagull I will literally start shaking and crying if it comes too close for comfort.

    I have a fear of seaweed.

    I call it Phykiphobia, from the Greek word for seaweed. I've never met anyone else afraid of seaweed, but I've heard Axl Rose is afraid of seaweed.

    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 -.-

    I have a phobia of people observing me,

    like it makes me uncomfortable being the center of attention, or having people stare at me while I'm trying to do something.

    I have a fear of vomiting (Emetophobia),

    it scares me so much! If I hear that someone is going to be sick near me I get engulfed in the worst attack of anxiety ever. I can't even watch hospital dramas because of it and turn away if I watch films where someone is vomiting .... Ewwwwww!

    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.

    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...
