Biggest Fear/Phobia?

My biggest fear is bridges. I'm not afraid of heights, nor am I afraid of water. I am afraid of bridges. I know it is weird but I LITERALLY get panic attacks if we have to drive over one. I even feel anxiety looking at a picture of a bridge. I used to have recurring nightmares when I was about 5/6 yrs old that me (though I was a 8-11 yr old boy in dream) and my family (not real family...dad driving, mom in passenger seat and me a baby and a little toddler girl (must have been siblings) in the back seats). We were listening to Elvis (IRL I didn't even know who Elvis was at this age...but I recognized it later.) in the car and were driving over a bridge and it broke and we all died. This was over and over for about 2 yrs I dreamt this. I don't know if the dreams had something to do with my fear or not, but it's stuck with me for years...

Do you have any strange Fears or Phobias? If so, do you know why or what may have caused them?

 My biggest fear is that I will die alone and won't ever have that "forever someone."

Will you climb up a ladder? Does just looking at a ladder make you nervous?

spiders. I HATE spiders. I am.terrified of them and will.scream like a 2 yr old and make my 7yr old son put a.container over one and trap it if I see one in the house (he thinks it's fun to "save" me)
My son has a plastic spider toy and if he leaves it out I find it difficult to touch it to put it away. I KNOW it's.not real but I still must FORCE myself to pick it up. Every fiber of my being screams "don't f-ing touch that"! It's horrible.

Looking at it, moving it around not so much. Climbing it freaks me out. I have to get on step ladders at work and I freak out a little bit. I refuse to climb any other ladder.

Do you live near volcanos? Do you know why you are scared of lady bugs?
