OMG! I have a friend like this!!! I had no idea this was a thing, I just thought she was a nutjob. She’d be glad to know that her phobia has a name!

I’ve heard of it.  Lotus pods don’t give me the creeps but if there is dried mud with holes or wasps nests etc those creep me out.  I don’t get nauseous but more like the look of it drives me nuts.  Hard to explain…kind of like nails on a chalkboard but only for my eyes.  Like seeing a snake slither across the yard or something.  Just gives me the willies.

I honestly like Lotus pods and even contemplated having them in my bouquet until one of my BM said they creep her out and then I saw the message board stating just that.  So I nixed them.

No.

As weird as I am (trust me, that’s pretty weird), I don’t have any phobias. Like…nada.

Phobias are very common though. Many people have at least one.

Oh and FYI- don’t google image ‘trypophobia’ unless you want to see some weird crap.  Blech.

Omg the first one you posted made me go dizzy and cold!!! That was one of the worst things I have ever seen in my entire life. Bleh!!! I guess I have the same phobia you do.

I looked at the second picture, and it did give me a sick feeling but not as bad as the first one. The third one didn’t open, thank God!

They give me slight heeby jeebies, but nothing extreme or even bad enough where I have to look away from them.

@dovelovesfalcon:  I didn’t know what they looked like, but when I google image searched, my skin literally began crawling and I got goosebumps. Wow, that is sick.

YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I definitely have trypophobia I always thought I was crazy until I learned it was an actual thing. I have goosebumps just thinking about lotus pods. I was praying that you didn’t post a picture of one on the thread! lol
