Spiders!! oh my god. dreadful things.

<p>my biggest phobia was losing my dad.. but&nbsp;i faced that and now just underground parking spaces</p>

<p>my biggest fear is buggs&nbsp; thay dident bug me untill i was in AZ we had roches BAD I opend a box of cerel and&nbsp; pored a bolw of roch puffs</p>

<p>Colorado. Seriously--I have a repetitive nightmare, and it takes place in Colorado. Just the mention of the place sets mt nerves on edge.</p>

Never fulfilling my ambitions.

<p>Crickets!!</p>

<p>To live the rest of my life alone.</p>

<p>I have an active imagination which doesn't help but for me it's the snake in the toilet. Every once in awhile you'll see a story about someone finding a snake in their toilet. So now I'm living in the snake capital Florida, home of many poisoness snakes. As a guy I can just imagine where they'll bite first. I'm an adult and know better of such things, but......one never knows........do they.</p>

<p>bugs. junebugs, roly-polys,beetles, roaches....you will never see someone freak out like i will especially if they touch me. i'm getting the hee bee jee bee's thinking about it!!</p>

<p>&nbsp;My biggest phobia would be having cockroaches, I hate them. One time, I was at my grandfather's and a cockroach crawled into my backpack, then crawled out. I didn't bring anything back home with me.&nbsp;</p>

<p>Snakes and finding person dead.</p>

<p>DEATH!! oh yeah,snakes and (don't laugh) clowns</p>

<p>I really can't think of any.</p>

<p>i am afraid of the dark. im seventeen and still PETRIFIED&nbsp;of the dark, like i get anxiety attacks if im&nbsp;left in the dark w/o any light.</p>

<p>to&nbsp;die&nbsp;in a tragic way&nbsp;is my biggest fear, what i wish is that i will die lying on my bed bec. of old age, & not through some misfortunate event&nbsp;& then be found somewhere lying dead&nbsp;in a ditch.</p>

<p>losing EP... Now that scares the hell out of me!</p>

<p>HEY! stop pickn on poor aunt phobia! She cant help it if she is huge.</p>

<p>Vomit.</p><br />
<p>Even the sound of a juicy burp sends my skin crawling.</p>

<p>Snakes. </p>

<p>I love flying but affraid if hghts out of closed areas.</p>

<p>Without a doubt it is SNAKES!&nbsp;I&nbsp;hate them!&nbsp;I hate the way the word sounds, the way the look, their ugly little round beady eyes!&nbsp;They make me sick and I cringe at the thought of them!&nbsp;I wish they were all dead, but I am too terrified to even hit them with my car when driving for fear they will attach to the tire of something and jump out to get me when i get out of the car!</p>

<p>Driving of the Freeways of greater Los Angles area.......Once I was going 15 miles....Got so lost that it took me three phone calls.....and four stops at a gas station to get where I was wanting to go......2 1/2 hours to go 10 miles....Now that is bad...<br /><br />
&nbsp;</p><br />
<p>My Mother in law says that I am being silly.....But I tell her that it is not as silly as hubbies.....He is afraid of grass hoppers.....She tells me that grass hoppers can hurt you when they kick.......But I tell her....Yea....but I have never heard of someone getting killed by a grasshopper....</p><br />
<p>&nbsp;</p><br />
<p>She loves her little baby so much that anything that he does is alright.....and me....I can do no right....Go figure</p>

<p>anything to do with vomit. nausea, vomiting, seeing smelling or hearing someone vomit.</p>

<p>I hate tight places, weather there are windows or not.&nbsp; </p>

<p>clowns</p>

<p>All of you are missing the biggest fear of all.&nbsp;</p><br />
<p>The fear of Failure!&nbsp;</p><br />
<p>We all have it.&nbsp;</p>

<p>There's a 3-way tie between heights, snakes and big, flying roaches.</p>

<p>Fear of hights.</p>

<p>&nbsp;Dying, without having experienced true love and acceptance.&nbsp;</p><br />
<p>Sometimes I&nbsp;feel so invisible, locked inside myself.</p>

<p>Saying the word "never"</p>

<p>I'm afraid of fire.&nbsp; Funny, because&nbsp;I&nbsp;married a fire fighter...that's not why I married him though!!!!!!</p>

<p>That the phone will ring, with bad news ...</p>

<p><strong>I have two phobias, the biggest being: terrified of heights and petrified of the dark.</strong></p>

<p>Fire. I hate it and I love it</p>

<p>Well as beautiful as spider webs are i still freak if there's a spider inside my house i have to kill it cause im afraid it will bite me. Other than that i would have to say heights, im deathly afraid of heights really bad.</p>

<p><strong>Riding in a plane and death by fire! </strong>(I&nbsp;have MANY phobias!)</p>

Ichthyophobia<br />
<p>My phobia is a Fear of Fish .... looking at them, God Forbide Touching them,,,, can't eat them, don't want to be around fishtanks ... fish stores, etc.</p><br />
<p>I remember how it started ... I lived on the Lower East Side of Manhattan when I was a little girl and my mom use to bring me and my sister to the FULTON FISH MARKET ....down by the Hudson River.&nbsp; It was a huge white building where they sold raw fish . .and it smelled awful ... Fish use to be peeking out from various refrigerator cases and since I was short, those fish eyes would always be looking at me ... made me sick to see them and actually made me vomit.&nbsp; My mom would tell my sister to bring me outside for some fresh air and she would deposit me against the brick wall and leave me there to continue throwing up ...</p><br />
<p>So who do I marry ... a man who loves to sportfish ... Always has ... fish fish fish .... I am surrounded by them, and they are my biggest phobia.</p>

<p>Agoraphobia.</p>

<p>I&acute;ve got 2. Making a fool of myself in front of people, even if they&acute;re family and people who make me look a fool, at least I feel that I look a fool to everyone...and really I could go on, but their are other people who have phobias.</p>

<p>Snakes and spiders equally.&nbsp; I wont even touch a picture of them.</p>

<p>freakin spiders..&nbsp; It is so bad that I can't walk down an aisle if there is a stuffed animal of one. I won't go down any Halloween aisles either!&nbsp; FREAKING&nbsp;SPIDERS&nbsp; they are so nasty and gross and creepy and ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww</p>

<p>&nbsp;Anything with large teeth that is growling......</p>

<p>I have a pretty bad case of mottephobia - the fear of moths. Yeah, laugh all you want, I&nbsp;know it's pretty silly. :) </p><br />
<p>I&nbsp;even know that a moth really can't do much of anything to hurt me, but since a phobia is just an irrational or disproportional fear of something, the facts really don't matter all that much to me when there is an erratically-flying monster in my room. If I&nbsp;know that there is a moth in my general vicinity, I will just stand and keep my eyes glued on it if I&nbsp;can, ready to run if it starts coming in my direction. And if it's in my room at night, I can't sleep until it is either dead or trapped on the other side of a window or door from me. </p><br />
<p>My friends make fun of me all the time for running away from moths, especially since I've been known to calmly stand within a couple feet of a bull snake, and then run, flailing, down the street minutes later as a moth flies toward me.</p>

That something bad will happen to someone that I love.

<p>Crowds or just people being close to me.&nbsp;</p><br />
<p>&nbsp;</p>

<p>SPIDERS!!!! those freakin eight legged monsters of the shadows. Do you know that in the aversage lifetime of a person, we eat almost 2 pounds of spiders.</p>

<p>I&nbsp;guess you can say claustrophobia. But it's more a fear of not being able to get out of some place or move around.&nbsp;I'm fine in elevators with a few people, but pack it so tight you can't move, forget it. I start freaking out.</p>

<p>I have got this mad THING against flying stinging insects!!!&nbsp; It doesn't matter what species I can't stand them!&nbsp; I was stung by a bumble bee on the side of my face when I was 6 and I haven't forgotten it and I'm 50 years old now.&nbsp; I cut the bud and flowers off of my plants during the warm and hot months just to keep them from coming around my house.&nbsp; Of course they still flit here and there but it's not like they are camping out on my rosebuds.&nbsp; HATE&nbsp;THEM bugs!!!&nbsp;</p>

<p>1)&nbsp;Getting old</p><br />
<p>2) Birds (I freak out when one flies close to me)</p><br />
<p>3)&nbsp;I'm a bit claustrophobic too</p><br />
<p>&nbsp;</p>

<p>Running out of chocolate :)</p>

<p>speed</p>

<p>Spiders!!! I am so scared that I can not even kill them.&nbsp; It is a paralyzing fear.&nbsp;</p>

<p>Wasps.... I can't stand them. I have jumped off of a roof to get away from them....</p>

<p>That the christian world as we know it now, will be taken over by the islamic peoples . They are getting away with so much , its the radicals of this religion that will kill our way of belief and life . And I realy am scared for our children</p>

<p>Realizing that nobody cares about me</p>

<p>Being locked up in a an enclosed space somewhere. Having no control of that situation and no way to get out of there, that is my biggest phobia. I don't even have to be alone in the space, just the fact that I have no control of getting out of there and not finding a possible way to get out on my own scares me. </p>

<p>&nbsp;My biggest phobia is of the future. I am extremely frightened that I will die alone sometime without having made a difference in the world. No one would realize I&nbsp;was gone and the world would have been the same had I&nbsp;never been born. I need to believe I have a purpose in life, that I matter.</p>

<p>i dont know what u call that phobia, but i am terrified of lizards and rats...</p>

<p>Being alone in the dark.. I dont know what its called. And when i say 'darkness' i mean the kind i know i cant control by like.. flipping a switch or something.</p>

<p>&nbsp; I have arahnophobia(</p>
