    I'Ve Only Found Out Myself Recently

    Few months back I could easily say I wasn't scared of anything. And I wasn't! I can speak, sing, dance, do whatever I feel like in public. I can sit in a dark confined space for hours without panicking. I'm completely unaffected by any height (unless of course I'm falling and...

    I don't get it. People can be scared of

    dangerous things that can happen especially in their life. While I'm over here scared of getting into a Ferris wheel because it's high up. I. Hate. Heights.

    Lilapsophobia - Fear of Tornadoes and Hurricanes. I don't really know if I'm phobic of hurricanes as I've never been in one. However, I am EXTREMELY phobic of tornadoes. I get so nervous I'll make myself physically sick to the point of vomiting. It wouldn't be as bad (hopefully...

    I am afraid of heights.

    It can be weird. I used to go hiking in the Adirondack mountains. I would climb to the top of the mountain just fine....but could not bring myself to climb the stairs of the fire tower at the top. I can be in the observation deck of a tall skyscraper, and as long as there is...

    Of Heights and People...

    Mainly, I am afraid of heights.  Technically, it's more a fear of falling.  I can be high up in a building and be fine, but climbing those staircases with gaps beneath the steps, or ladders, or anything I can plausibly fall off (narrow bridges, towers etc.) just causes...

    I'm have a phobia of claymation.

    It started when I was a kid and Gumby would be on Nickelodeon. Never had a problem with it until I got the chickenpox and had these nightmares that I was trapped in Gumby's world and he was chasing me everywhere, and if I sat down on a chair, it would be Gumby in disguise coming...

    Phonophobic?

    Phonophobia is a fear of loud, or sudden loud noises. I'm not really diagnosed, but I'm pretty sure I have it. When I was about three, I was walking around the house for my sister's birthday. I went to the front porch, and the minute I stepped outside, three large balloons...

    Acousticophobia?

    I'm guessing it's Acousticophobia or something similar.  I can hear natural noises all day without problem.  Artificial noises annoy me no end.  Artificial noise annoys most people I guess; noisy cars, lawn mowers etc. Other people's music causes dread, fear, anxiety etc...

    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...

    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...

    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.
