I have a completely irrational fear of flying since it’s very safe but whenever I fly, I’m so nervous that I have to be completely aware of everything so as to will the plane to stay in the sky.

Oh and the movie, Super Mario Brothers b/c everytime I watched it as a kid, I’d get super super sick, like fevers, vomitting, headache, sore throat, the entire 9 yards.  So I just avoid it, I will seriously walk out of the room if someone starts to play that movie.  You just can’t get me to watch it.

I have an irrational fear of cutting myself with scissors. I’d probably pass out and die in my own vomit if I ever cut myself with scissors. Not anything else mind you, just scissors.

I have an immense fear of the dark.  So embarrassing to admit, but I can’t walk across a dark room.  Darling Husband has to be the last one to turn out the lights.

Absolutely petrified with the idea of a cockroach crawling way up into my ear one night.

Also that I may one day contract the flesh-eating disease.

My biggest fears are heights and someone breaking into my house. I know a lot of people are afraid of heights but I seriously can have a panic attack when I’m too high. I doesn’t help that I’ve been at the top of a ladder when it broke, and fell a good 10 feet off a cliff onto rocks.

As for the breaking in thing… I think I watch too many crime shows, I’m just freaked out by the idea.

I have a fear of being stabbed, especially in a crowd.  Not that being stabbed in private is profoundly less bad.

@MrsRuby: OMG, I can’t believe I forgot fire! Fire is another huge fear of mine. My microwave sparked yesterday while I was heating up pizza and I flipped out. I always have dreams about only being able to save one thing while my house is burning, and I have random thoughts about how would I save both of my cats if there were a fire since I live alone and carrying both would be tough.

Ugh… I hate millipedes too! And spiders, ick. Spiders freak me out too. Good thing I have cats 🙂

@MsPanda: Legitimate question: what exactly are you afraid they’re going to do / result from having contact with them? (the cold hot dogs, that is)

I am terrified of being burnt alive. I had nightmares every night as a kid of being burnt up in my sleep. The nightmares continued for 15 years! I therefore refuse to be cremated. I made Fiance put it in writing that he wouldn’t cremate me. Chop me up and feed me to the fishes just don’t burn me!
