Yup, its true, laugh if you want :) I laugh at myself :). I am terrified of aliens. more specifically the most commonly depicted grey alien. This is a phobia I've had since I was a child. It started when my dad made me watch Cocoon when I was only six or seven years old. It has since then grown to crazy heights. I have vertical blinds and if there are any spaces in them I can't sleep because I can see out my window into the sky. Here's the funniest part though. Even though I am terrified of aliens, I am also extremely fascinated by them! So it's a love hate relationship I've got going on here.
