  • I don't know the terms for them, but I am terrified of blood, I am terrified of being alone at night, snakes & spiders.

  • I don't know the term for it, but I am terrified of heights. I can barely even get on a 2 step step stool without panicking. I don't know if it's a phobia or not, but I also really, really, really hate cockroaches. Like if I even just see one, I feel the need to take a shower and scrub my body, and if it touches me, I want to scrub until my skin turns red. I have to make my 8 yr old kill them b/c I can't even get close enough to do it.

  • im terrified of spiders like you have no idea. and i am scared of heights...i was goin to a sox game and my legs buckled cuz it felt the escalator was goin too high and i looked up at the other levels and almost had an anxiety attack. im scared of the dark. im clauseterphobic. i have jus about any fear you can think of when it comes to my daughter. i absolutely freak if i think somethings gonna happen. for example..when we go to the park im RIGHT next to hear. and i dont let my parents take her unless im there cuz im scared they wont stay close to her. i have a HUGE phobia of something happening to my daughter. when she was first born id get out of the driver seat lock the door go to her car door unlock it and take her out and lock it and then i would do it all again when we got back to the car.

  • yes, I'm claustrophobic. I found this out when I had to have an MRI done. I hate elevators too. If there are just a few people on the elevators that's ok but more than 8, I feel like I can't breathe.
