People always laugh at me, but I’m soooo scared of fish!  I’ll happily eat it, as long as it doesn’t look like a fish.  But, I just cannot look at one or get anywhere near one…my fear is that it will touch me!

until recently i was scared to make anything from scratch (food wise). i mean AFRAID! i think it comes from us not having much money growing up and i was afraid to burn food (i mean food cost money so i’d rather play it safe).

recently though i have been making chocolate chip cookies from scratch and they are magnificent!! the boys BEG me to make them every day lol!! i’ve probably made 10 or so batches this week ๐Ÿ˜€

I have an intense fear the telephone. I’ve just started answering the phone in the last couple years, and will only do it if I know the person. I absolutely hate it when people call just to talk. Only call me if you have a reason to!

I still can’t call anybody, though.

I think my fear stems from when I was really little and lost my first tooth. I called my grandmother to tell her and must have dialed the wrong number. I didn’t realize it and the people on the other end played mean games and passed the phone around to a bunch of people. I was crying because I just wanted to talk to my Nanny!

@corgi: for me the from scratch just brings to mind someone burning something or saying it’s disgusting. perhaps it’s my phobia of failure. i don’t do not being successful well. i am one of those insane people who have to be PERFECT at everything that i do or else i won’t do anything.  i’m getting over it in food and everything else.  but M has always been sweet eating whatever I cook no matter how disgusting gross or rubbery ๐Ÿ˜€

CorgiTales I used to feel the exact same way and also would never eat meat that wasn’t in the form of a premade hamburger, peperoni or something like that.

I literally took photos the first time I cooked meat, no joke. After about 3 1/2 years of never eating red meat around me, my FI asked for some. I felt obliged.

I guess I just kinda had to get over it. I don’t cook red meat very often, but work with chicken and fish often, which is little more scary germ wise to me if I focus on it. Just don’t cross-contaminate. I wipe down counters with clorox wipes before and after cooking. We have color coded cutting boards for veggies, meat, poultry and fish. Cooking towels are not re-used, etc.

I am also afraid of birds, live fish, and will hyperventilate if a bug catches me off-gaurd.

@CorgiTales: Both!  In the water, in an aquarium, even in a tank sitting in a room.  I just don’t like them anywhere near me!

I have a crazy fear of vomit. I’m afraid of throwing up myself, of other people throwing up near  me, of seeing it in general.

 

I mean no one really likes it. But I’m TERRIFIED of it. It’s kind of crazy, I don’t know what I’m going to do when I have kids!

I am so scared of owls. I saw one out in the wild one time and I was so convinced that it was going to attack me ๐Ÿ™ And they have those scary heads that turn around. ahhh! The funny thing is, my Grandma loves owls and she has them all over the house. Ick! so creepy…

My one giant phobia? Bees and wasps. They TERRIFY me. I even had a bit of a hard time adjusting to seeing the little bee at the top of Weddingbee when I first found this site :-[

Another one, drowning. But that one’s probably because I can’t swim and I sink like a piece of lead whenever I’m in water.

Submarines. Scare. The. Crap. Out of me.

@MissNewYork – me too. I’ll hold it in for hours, it’s horrible. I’ll sit and cry because I’m so scared of it. I could never be bulimic! I run away from it if others do it. It terrifies me.

It’s not weird, but spiders.  Real, fake, cartoon, in a video game, doesn’t matter, I’m terrified of it.  If it even looks like a spider (like crabs) I freak out.  Anytime we watch a movie or something and a spidery thing comes on FI has to tell me when it’s gone.  Funny though, I didn’t freak out about the spiderman movies (only the part where there was an actual spider)
