I have caulrophobia (which isn't on the list). that means i'm afraid of clowns. I don't know why, it's not very fun, but there ya go. they creep me out in a major way.

I'm really afraid of snakes, and my psych teacher knows this. We were doing an experiment on desensitization, which gradually reduces your fears by exposing you to the thing that you fear a little at a time. He told me that he had a snake hiding in a box (it's name was "Mr. Wiggles") and that he wanted me to pet the snake. He pulled it out, and it turned out to be fake, but I freaked out anyway.
I'm also afraid of heights, spiders, and I'm not too fond of circuses.

Honestly, I know it sounds crazy but I am afraid of clowns. Ever since I saw that movie IT, I just don't like them anymore. They are suppose to be good, and make people laugh but i don't like them.

I am also afraid of the dark. Whenever I see like a shadow or something it just scares me. I get this rush that just makes me want to run and scream. I don't know what it is.

I am afraid of three things..and I will put them in order:

1. I have a tie...The Scale/weight gain and spiders
2. Abandonement

The first two scare me more than anything in all the world.

They might be, but talking about illegal activities (like taking drugs) isn't okay here, especially in any sense that might be seen as promoting such things. Just an FYI.

It scares me to death when someone reaches out to touch or grab me suddenly. It kills me to even think about it, let alone put it on a board for the whole world to see, but I was raped three years ago by someone I knew and trusted. He literally grabbed me off my horse, dislocating my shoulder in the process, and ever since I completely freak out when someone grabs me. Other than that, I'm totally over it.

On the lighter side, I'm terrified of having to clean out the sink strainer. I have no clue why, but I am. I hate our garbage disposal, so that may be part of it, LOL

My main fear is ghosts. Ghosts scare me. As creepy as I am, I cannot stand the thought of ghosts. I cross every corner in my house with a balled fist, I've gotten into the habit of having my sword at the comouter table with me at night. (I dont know what good a sword will do against an apparition, but if the shining bath tub lady comes at me I will either wet myself or start chopping her up. I've never seen that movie, but I know about it, and just the thought alone has made me terrified of hotels and bathrooms. o____________O))

I'm afraid of needles/shots... I tend to freak out insanely whenever I need to get something done at the doctor involving needles.

I'm also afraid of escalators, as silly as it may sound. I feel down them a bunch of times as a kid, and I just have a really hard time using them now. I'm not afraid of heights or anything, just escalators.

I'm also afraid of being seen nude, or being raped. I suppose that's normal, but I find it to be a pretty intense fear sometimes. =/

Agoraphobic- open places, large crowds
Arachnaphobic- spiders
Hypsiphobia- heights
Taphaphobia- being buried alive
Thanatophobia- death, dying


I've been Arachnaphobic since I was little, Sociophobic for about 8 years, and I found out that I was Agoraphobic 2 years ago. I guess I had been Agoraphobic since I was about 8 or so. Heights and death is pretty self explanatory, and being buried alive is a nightmare I always have. I've had it for about 5 years. That's why I TRY to have a good day I also have a fear of being raped.

Do I sound crazy for having all these phobias?


I think I handle all of my phobias pretty well tho.

I'm afraid of being raped, getting lost, large crowds, spiders, sometimes the dark, clowns, and dying. Oh yeah, and sometimes heights.

I'm afraid of any flying bug that can potentialy sting me, clowns(they creep me out because they always follow me around at carnivals,) and driving over a bridge or overpass that's over water. I would like to note that I am not afraid of going over bridges when someone else is driving and I'm a passenger. It's kind of strange because you might tend to think it would be the other way around and I would be fine when I'm doing the actual driving. I'm just afraid the car is going to wreck and flip over the side of the bridge and then I'd be trapped inside of the car under water. Does anyone else have this fear?

I'm also scared of the dark to the point that I sleep with my lamp on and I always have to have the loungeroom light on if I stay up at night. I'm also socially phobic to the point that I don't like to meet new people except if it is my mum's freinds or my dad's friends or my sister's friends. I started a topic in the Village People section and I mentioned that I was nervous and a bit scared, and I was shaking alot. I stumble on my words when meeting someone face to face, but online I'm ok.

My fears:

hypsiphobia, hypsophobia - heights
I am deathly afraid of heights. For some reason when I'm high up and I look down, I feel unsteady like I'm about to fall off. You should have seen me atop the CN Tower near the glass floor tiles - nervous wreck.

hadephobia - hell
Being brought up Roman Catholic, my mom always made sure to tell me stories about how committing sins would get me sent straight to hell. She'd follow those stories up with wonderful descriptions of the devil that would give me nightmares. Sometimes if I do something I know is morally wrong, I fear eternal damnation.

gerascophobia - growing old
I'm afraid that I will be one of those senile old people locked up in a convalescent home, confined to a wheel chair and forced to live out my days playing solitaire with people who don't give a damn about me.

eremiophobia, eremophobia - being alone, solitude
My worst fear. There's nothing worse than being alone. I can't imagine living life in solitude for all time. I get a knot in my stomach thinking about living alone for eternity.

Lastly, a fear that wasn't listed on entropie's long list of fears: I fear eternity, especially eternal consciousness. Ugh what a nasty, horrifying thought.


So, now all of you know what a neurotic person I am.

I'm afraid of dogs . . . whenever I'm walking and someone with a dog on a leash approaches me, I always have to move all the way to the other end of the sidewalk (and sometimes even the street!) just to make sure the dog doesn't go near me. I'm always afraid that they'll bite me or something. If a dog barks -- even a tiny one -- it always scares me.

Apart from that, I have a bit of social anxiety. I'm also afraid of losing my mind.

I'm afraid of the dark. I'm always afraid Regan from The Exorcist is awaiting me there or something.

I'm also afraid of my crush finding out I like him. I'd be devastated.

I'm also afraid of death.

I'm also afraid of freak accidents happening, like electrocution or getting hit by a bus or something. Not only am I scared of this happening to me, but of my family and friends.

I'm also afraid of a burglar. For instance, last night I was cleaning my kitchen and i couldn't look in the dark rooms or through a window because I was afraid someone or something was in there. And I'm such a freak, I kept ducking when I went past windows afraid someone was snipering me or something. I get VERY paranoid at night. Once my friend was kicking her feet in the air with white socks on and I had her stop because it looked like ghosts. *sigh*

I'm also afraid of teeny tiny enclosed spaces. Im chlosterphobic (sp???)

My main fear is Panocidophobia, the fear of the destruction of the entire human race, because after that, there's nothing you can do. I mean, noone to continue your legacy, noone to pray to their various gods for you, noone to even take care of your remains. But fortunately, I doubt thats going to happen any time soon. However you never know...

i'm opposite to the first poster in that i often think i am afraid of life... i'm not suicidal at all but life seems so huge and terrifying and terrible and difficult and exhausting that death seems quite good to me - just as a kind of break, a relief sort of thing....

just theoretically though, cos when i am in a life-threatening situation - i get just as scared as anyone else. i had a young (only about 18 maybe - looked younger) policeman pointing a gun at my stomach after our car was pulled over in a mistaken identity when i was abroad (they thought we were mafia/militia of some sort) and he was shaking with fear and i kept on thinking "one loud noise/car back-firing and my stomach is going to have a huge hole blasted through it" and was just praying for him to lower the gun - which he did when they realised, fairly quickly, we weren't who they thought we were and it probably didn't last nearly as long as it felt.
so i am kinda scared of life but only when it's not being threatened!!!
though when i fell over the edge of a ravine i wasn't scared at all - the last thought i remember having before i knocked myself out on the bottom was just "oooh nooo - this isn't right...." no life-altering flashbacks or thoughts and apparently that's what i said too when i was falling just "oh no" - no swearing or anything! i was fine though in the end (obviously) so maybe that's why.

Fear Phobias.. hmmm... past or present?

In the past
--rollercoasters (that was overcomed at 10)
--being hurt by love (overcomed at 16)--death (overcomed that at 16)

In the present day
--I hardly have any. I've learned to accept and love for anything or for any one that i come across to in my life. A big thanks goes to photography interest that was revealed in HS and photography taught me that things are natural and that you should not alter anything from it's course. I've let many doors open up to the lifestyle i lead.

I'm terrified to death of ants. I can't explain it. If I catch one crawl on me, or even imagine it, I freak out and hyperventilate. I'm also afraid of silence and sometimes of height.

My boyfriend is scared of spiders. They never used to bother me, but even since I started going out with him, I've been freaked out by them too. Not to the extent he is, of course, but they're pretty scary creatures. I've never heard of a phobia being contagious though. Maybe it's all in my head.

Taphophobia. Most definitely. I would *never* want to be burried alive. I think it may have something to do with my brother sitting on my head and almost suffocating me to death when I was a year or two. Yes... Bad things happen when I'm in extremely tight places and the only way out is blocked. There's a lot of screaming, yelling, cursing, pounding on the walls, etc, that goes on until I'm let out.

Things I'm scared of: death, illness, pain, (all horrible things like that), spiders, poisonous things and things that sting (bees, wasps etc), horrible creepy crawlies, the dark (not being able to see what's around me or where I'm goin is scary). There will be more but I'm not gonna go on and on. Man, I'm such a scaredy cat.

being in complete darkness really freaks me out (had an episode of panic on the weekend), I'm scared of small, closed in spaces, (claustrophobic), death/dying, being buried/burned alive, drowning, being tortured, I get scared when I'm home alone that someone is going to come in(or is already in) and is going to try and kill me, centipedes, spiders, sometimes heights, tornados, suffocating, getting cancer,

that's all I can think of right now... wow I'm kind of a wuss! heh
