    Necrophobia

    I can finally put a name to my fear - Necrophobia. The fear of death or dead things (corpses). For me, the first is not the problem, but the latter is. Researching it hasn't been fun either, as psychologists say that necrophobia is one of the most serious phobias... which...

    The One That Won't Leave Me Alone

    I have several phobias, but none are as severe as this. My one phobia was formed last year around this time. Now, I am pretty sure that this is not an "official" phobia because it does not have a name; I have searched for one, but none have turned up. Well - I am deathly...

    Dentists

    I have a irrational fear of the dentist. I haven't been for probably about 7 years and in that time my teeth have got really bad, both my parents have bad teeth and it seems I've been cursed with it too. I know the dentist is only there to fix the problems for me, but I'm 17...

    I've Got Catagelophobia

    Yes, I am very afraid of being ridiculed. It does me real trouble, I am never relaxed except if there's no one who can see me - for example, if I am on the 10th floor of a building, all by myself. And I also am afraid of ghosts and paranormal stuff like that in general. I...

    I am phobic of the following: 1) "Aei5" (don't ask...I don't know. I was paranoid for weeks of that combination.) 2) Germs (Have been mysophobic for 2 or 3 years now.) 3) Being touched anywhere by anyone or anything. (It's kinda related to #2 but I don't like being touched...

    Death

    I am an internal hypocrite. I cut, yet I fear pain. I have planed suicide, but I am afraid of painful death. I do not fear death itself. Fearing death is illogical because we will all die eventually, but dying suddenly, or painfully is a logical fear. I fear being out of control...

    Not Many

    I used to have a phobia of dogs, but it's now just a fear of them. I have phobias of spiders, vomit, and deep water. I don't really count this one, but because I have OCD, I have a phobia of germs.
