I have a fear of balloons.  I don’t like sudden loud noises, and I’m always worried that balloons will pop at any second and cause me to jump in fear.  I try to keep a wide berth between myself and any balloons at birthday parties.

@BellaDee:  These are not weird, they are entirely normal:

  • Birds *shudder* Anything that can peck my eyes out and get caught in my hair is not good in my books
  • Flying. Well, crashing
  • Someone stealing my furbaby
  • Insects are creepy, gross, and small enough to end up in my mouth while I sleep
  • Revolving doors because you can get stuck
  • Rabbits because they bite me
  • Elevators because you can get stuck
  • Home invasions

Okay, I’m starting to sound a little neurotic. I will stop, lol.

I have an irrational fear of spiders – I hate them and can’t go near them or kill them.  Gross.

I also have a weird fear of going under anesthesia for an operation and never waking up again.

Daddy long legs spiders, styrofoam and mechanical/plastic sharks. The last one is a result from being traumatized by the Jaws ride at Universal Studios when I was six. I seriously freak out if we go to a seafood restaurant that has plastic sharks lol

Elevators and the fear of a snake being in the toilet and biting my goodies while I’m peeing.

@mnp:  trapped in an elevator with a clown? LOL.

 

I am afraid of open water. I’m a very good swimmer, grew up on boats, have been on 10+ cruises, but I do not like open water. What I mean is that I would never want to be in the middle of the ocean on a boat, ship, anything. Ever. I just feel so insignificant and like anything could happen at any moment. It makes me super nervous. Cruises I’m fine with because you’re not that far from the coast, unless you’re doing a trans-atlantic or something like that.

I don’t like bugs either, but I don’t know that I’d consider it a phobia. My stepfather has a phobia and is deathly afraid of spiders. This man was a special forces green beret, but no spiders. There was once a big spider in our basement and he shot it. Yes, with a gun. There was a hole in the wall that my mother flipped out about. Now that is a phobia!
