    I am terrified of large dogs.  I have been bitten several times, so it’s an irrationally rational fear.

    Ok here is probably the weirdest phobia you will ever hear on this board: FAKE HAIR!

    I can’t go near a wig, hair extension, or false eyelash without at least cringing and shuddering. If it touches me I will scream at the least, most likely cry. No idea where this phobia came from but I’ve been this way for as long as I can remember :/

    FISH!  And no I’m not talking about dolphins or sharks, just fish.  Looking at them or getting to close to them totally scares me.  Thinking they’ll touch me seriously gives me crazy anxiety, lol!

    @ScarletBegonia: omg, me too!  i don’t like hearing it, seeing it, doing it, even thinking about it, egh!  my episode of food poisoning last year was torturous. =(  but i’m actually a teensy bit less paranoid about it.

    and the dark sometimes.

    This might sound totally lame, but the bugs that creep me out the most are box-elder bugs.  There’s just something about them that is absolutely creepy – I think it’s the red design on their bodies.  I freak out whenever I see them!  Then again, I’m not a fan of most creepy crawly stuff in general…

    For bugs or critters, for me its cockroaches. I lived in florida, and they have Palmetto bugs which are basically giant cockroaches that FRICKIN FLY. I can’t even count the amount of times I slept in a different room just because there was a palmetto bug on the ceiling or something. And I don’t kill anything, so its this horrible cycle of screaming, shooing it with a plate, covering my head and ducking as it flys by…

    One of my biggest fears is attics. If the attic doesn’t have a switch outside of it, I just won’t go into it. The last time I had to go into an attic I ended up taking all of my lamps with me and putting them on the stairs and slowly trying to brighten the room before i entered. It leads into my other fear…

    Zombies. To the point of absurdity really, I want a gun for christmas because I have never been trained to use one and I’m just absolutely sure that the zombie apocalypse is coming and I want to be prepared. I have escape plans, we keep cricket bats nearby for weapons right now. Lucky for me Fiance feels exactly the same way so I don’t feel totally crazy 😀

    I put other cause getting married is scaring the crap out of me bad! lol. I gotta admit..it’s been freaking me out! As far as bugs..which would be number 2 scary on the list right now..there are these bugs that came in my last apt..every year..that neighborhood..ugh. Ok, they were long, red..with hundreds of long red legs on them with long red antennas…they are the CREEPIEST bugs I HAVE EVER seen!!! I can’t even find out what they are..I tried googling it a bunch of times. Now that I moved, there are TONS of Wolf Spiders here. And we saw THE BIGGEST spider we had ever seen in my parking lot..I had no idea Wolf Spiders could get that big..but we pull into the driveway..see the space next to us..and we see this GIANT spider. We were like holleeey crap, that’s not a spider, right?? It’s too big! But sure enough.. the body alone was as big as a silver dollar without the legs..no joke. We thought about killing it..but it was just so massive that we decided we couldn’t do it in a safe way. We thought we could try to run it over with the car..then we look, it’s not there anymore..so we just fly up to my apt. Wolf Spiders are poisonous and I knew someone who got sent to the ER after a spider bite from one of these and nearly died..so, ya..that passed through my mind when I saw this freggin thing! I hope it’s dead now!!!!

    I’m afraid of spiders and roaches, as well as most other bugs, just because they look weird. Also, those super huge red/orange and black grasshoppers, I think they’re Georgia grasshoppers…Lobsters and crabs are creepy too, lobsters, because they’re red. I’ll explain in a moment…

    @arenyth: I’m right there with you with attics. It’s not so much that I’m afraid of some person hiding away and plotting my demise, it’s just the fact that things get in there, and they can die. And I would have hated to be at my parent’s looking for Christmas decorations and come across a decompsing squirrel or something.

    Here’s something, I am totally creeped out by animals with bright colors. Lobsters, cow ants, the blue ringed octopus… It just seems unnatural to me.

    @kelsgurl: hahaha that’s so funny because I LOVED them while I was growing up!  We had tons of them and them and I were totally pals.  I let them crawl all over me and played with them and protected their eggs.  I thought they were fascinating.  I bet this gives you the heebie jeebies. 😛

    No animals really scare me, but what IMMEDIATELY gets me freaking out and anxious and feeling faint is blood, especially blood drawn by needles.  And needles in general.  Can’t think about it, hear about, or definitely not SEE IT without feeling lightheaded and really squeamish. I pass out every time I have blood drawn.  Without fail.  Same thing goes for seeing intravenous drug use on TV, or looking at an IV drip on someone else, or anything that goes into veins with a needle.   Oh god, I am really getting upset thinking about all this now.
