  • I used to be terrified of spiders and snakes. Now, iiving in the country and seeing both often, I have got over it. Now instead of running screaming in the other direction, I just kill them on sight.
    Im also terrified of bein alone in the dark.

  • Yes, quite a few as a matter of fact: The general public, public restrooms, crowded spaces, shopping cart handles (germs in general), old men, messy rooms.

  • I have issues with other peoples "bodily fluids" which of course relays into shopping cart handles, door handles, etc. I have a terrible fear of heights and am "over protective" of my children as I'm scared that they will either be stolen or killed. They are 17 and 18......

  • I wouldn't call them phobias. Some things just bother me, like germs and bridges. I also have a fear of scorpions, but that's because my son was stung last year and spent time in the hospital. During the warm season, I go out with a blacklight every night and smash them if I see them. I'm not afraid to get up close and kill them. I'm afraid of them getting in the house.

  • mice and being in crowds and even having to sit in the middle. I have to always sit on the end seat, cannot sit on the back of the car in the middle, even in meetings at work I get there early to get the seat on the end.

  • Bees, wasps, pretty much any flying thing that stings scares the shit out of me. That might be because I am allergic to them though. I couldn't deal with needles for a long time, but with as many times as I have had to be poked in the past few years, I can deal with them now without freaking out.
