Anybody have weird fears or phobias?

Anybody have weird fears or Phobias? I’m not talking about typical fears like of Spiders, or somebody breaking into your house or something like that. No, I’m talking about extreme phobias; like peanut butter sticking to your mouth, or Ketchup, or stuff like that. Myself? I am Radiophobic, meaning I am afraid of X-Rays. Does anyone think that’s a little strange? Like I’m afraid to see them, I’ll cover my eyes, and I don’t know what would trigger a fear like this. Anyone have Radiophobia or strange fears?

Answer #1

Insects [Entomophobia] and spiders. All of them. Even Ladybugs and Butterflies. Although they don’t scare me as bad as the other ones, they freak me out still.

Also: Irrational fear of TOO MUCH COLOR! Like all those websites that have rainbow on them, I just FREAK OUT! I don’t even like color! [meh, I was raised on B&W movies, go figure!] Now some colors I can stand, but other times I can’t! As a matter-of-fact, my fave color is gray… It’s not even a color.

I’m also Homophobic [not in the way you may think]. I HATE-HATE-HATE-HATE certain things being in order or the same! It makes me crazy! Sometimes with other stuff, I don’t mind it, but the mojority of the time I hate stuff being the same.

I hate being in large-open spaces. I like my little-enclosed space. All nice and cozy-like. Agoraphobia- “Fear of open spaces or of being in crowded, public places like markets. Fear of leaving a safe place.” Well, I can stand markets, I don’t like them, but I can stand them. Sometimes I can stand public crowed places too, but only if I’m Hell-bent on getting what I came for. Then when I get it I start begging to GO HOOOME! The only time I like to leave my safe place is for sleep, food, and the bathroom. Even then I wrap myself in a jacket or blanket and smother myself with it until I can’t brethe then I come out for air…Then I go back in.

I used to have Arrhenphobia wich is “fear of men” but I’ve managed to get… used? to that now.

Not that I have this phobia, but I thought this was always Ironic: Hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia - ‘Fear of long words.’ GUAAA!! That’s a big word!! I can’t even read all of it I got to the ‘q’ and forgot what I was saying! A very rational phobia if you ask me…

Mageirocophobia - ‘Fear of cooking’ OK, that’s emberrasing. But I am seriously afraid to even think about cooking. Baking pre-made stuff is different. Like pre-made brownies or cookies. But COOKING I am scared sh*tless of.

Scoptophobia - ‘Fear of being seen or stared at.’ I never really knew this was an actual phobia. I hate it when people stare at me… I know because it just happened last night. My whole family stared at me for no reason just to make me freak out. Being seen I can live with, but being stared at for a while I hate.

Wow… I’m more messed-up than I thought! Coool…

Answer #2

I have an unexplained fear of elevators. I am so afraid it is going to get stuck, and I’ll panic because it’s such a small space. I still get on them, and I probably don’t look like I’m scared when I am on one, but I am. :)

Answer #3

I’m afraid of lots of things but what really gets to me are: -when people are doing surgery on a person. Like, cutting their stomach open and digging around. Even if it’s on TV I squirm and close my eyes. -Martians. I think it’s because I watched ‘Mars Attacks’ when I was only 4 years old and even though it’s a comedy I was scared to death and still am. Every time I have my eyes closed in the shower, if I’m washing my hair, I think that when I open them I’ll see a creepy martian in front of me. -Religious paintings. I know it may be offending, but I can’t stand it when there are paintings of Jesus and other biblical figures and scenes on the walls. My grandma has it all over the place and I get really scared and start thinking of cemeteries and church and mostly death for some reason. It’s not really fright, but more like eerieness and total discomfort. -3:00 am. It’s mostly from watching the Exorcism of Emily Rose. She gets possessed at exactly 3 am every day and 3 am is apparently the time Jesus was killed. So when I wke up in the night and I look at my alarm clock and it’s like 2:58 I close my eyes and panic and sometimes just lay there avoiding the clock for half an hour to make sure I won’t see 3:00. Don’t watch horror movies! I’ve watched three hundred too many. They really screw up your mind. The definete must-nots if you don’t want to have a raging phobia haunting the rest of your life:

  • Carrie
  • The Exorcist
  • Saw
  • Silence of the Lambs
  • The Orphanage
  • The Exorcism of Emily Rose
Answer #4

I’m extremely afraid of dolls, and I hate going to my best friends house because of all the dolls her little sister has, and I have so many glass dolls that I give them to my mom and they end up being right there in the house where ever I go. I feel trapped everywhere I go.

I’m also afraid of being shut in closed places, and even in the lunch line at school I have to walk on the outside and my bestfriend keeps me safe, he’s really nice about my fears and tries helping me through them too.

oh and my greatest fear; no lie, is small/tiny black and white tvs and there is one in our house that takes batteries for if the power goes out and my mom has to hide it from me because if I see it than I start shaking like crazy. she’s decided it’s best that we get rid of it, but she can’t because of power outages.

Right now my worst phobia (apart from arachnophobia) is the fear of the future. It sounds crazy, I know. But I’m often asked what my goals are for the future and I can honestly say that I don’t really have any. I also know that the future also brings death, which is one of the things about the future that freaks me out. But I’m also afraid of getting older and watching people get older. For me, years seem to fly like seconds. I’m absolutely terrified because of that.

I have a deep and haunting fear of stupid people. and situations where I can’t get out of a situation with stupid people. and I’m not talking about the people who don’t know about star wars like the lame nerds.

Answer #38

I’m afraid of these things especially: -my toenails coming off or ripping off. I’m really scared of that. -that someone’s hiding in my closet or shower. I have to keep the light on in my bedroom all night. -bugs. I’m extremely afraid of spiders, moths, centipedes, worms, catepillars, and flies -when people stare at me. It REALLY bothers me. When they’re talking about me AND staring it makes everything worse. -dolls. My aunt gave me this doll (before she passed away) when I was five, and its eyes literally followed me everywhere so my dad gave it to someone. I felt so bad.

Answer #39

I’m hopelessly afraid of chickens. I think I might’ve had some sort of bad expearience with them when I was little. I’m claustrophobic, and I also hate being tied up or trapped somewhere I can’t get out of. And I am terrified of elevators. The elevator thing could just be more claustrophobia, but I also think that the elevator could get stuck, or the cables could snap and then I’d DIE!!!

“I have a deep and haunting fear of stupid people. and situations where I can’t get out of a situation with stupid people. and I’m not talking about the people who don’t know about star wars like the lame nerds.
