silly fears

I have been thinking the past couple of days about some of my fears that other people might find silly or different from most people's common fears.

Feel free to post anon and share some fears that you might have that are different than what you think people would normally be afraid of.

Surely, I can't be the only one!

Edit*** I do not think that any fears are silly. I just meant fears that are uncommon. For example, one of my really "silly" irrational fears is porta-potties. I don't know why, but I have always been afraid of them. I understand that the person suffering from the phobia does not think their fears are silly. I am also afraid of ants!

Fears are never silly from the view of the one suffering that phobia.


I'm afraid of lady bugs, and always have been.

My greatest fear has always been losing my SO though, and being able to do nothing. I hate feeling helpless.

I do apologize, I didn't mean to offend. I'll edit the OP. But this is a fear of mine too.

 Wind. Scares the shit outta me. That and most other things. Life in general terrifies me.

Holes. If I don't know where it's going... or if something can be hidden in it that I cannot see. That freaks me out. I'm not sure why, I've always felt this way. Like the honeycomb shapes on the doors in a car where the speakers are, that freaks me. Bee hives freak me out. I get sick to my stomach. It's so gross. Thinking about it can make me sick.

I have a fear of being lost. I have no sense of direction.

I also fear bridges (especially suspension bridges) and tunnels.

Yeah, zombies!!!

I'm also afraid of insects, particularly the stinging kind. And spiders. They make me scream.
