Scary Thought

Some people are scared of spiders, others clowns.....many people have their own fears for whatever reason.  My fear has always been the touch of newspaper or unfinished wood- such as, a Popsicle stick or wood desk.  I don't know why or how this started, but it's an awful thing to be afraid of.  I have been teased by my family and friends about it as if it was just a joke.  Hopefully I'm not alone here- Does anyone else have this weird obsession??

Yes me !!!!!!! I avoid buying anything wooden of any shape or form e.g - wooden spoons lolly sticks (especially) and take away forks . and the dry sensation when i touch a sheet of newspaper or something like that makes me wanna gag ... :L my friends and family mock me for it too. They dont realise how frustrating it is !!!!!

Yip me , petrified of wooden spoons and lolly stick brush shafts etc , makes me cringe and shake :-(

I must be the only other person on earth that has this phobia!, sarboo - i am with you on this one!!!

You could probably rid yourself of the phobia, if you wanted. There are a lot more potential ways of doing so these days, there's bound to be something that works for you.

I don't have that sort of fear, but I'm sorry that your friends and family make light of it. It sounds quite annoying. Plus, not knowing how it started, has to be aggravating too.
