    My phobia doesn't have a fancy name. It's just a fear of cows.

    Maybe I could call it Bovinephobia.
    Fear of... cows? Hmm I guess they are a bit scary, I found myself in the middle of a field where they were all standing and looking at me once. Don't ask :p:

    I have that one too I'm not sure what the name is, but I guess it's fear of falling really. They petrify me, tube stations are a nightmare =/

    Shopping centres are a nightmare! When you want to get back to the ground floor, and you have to go down 4 of them. It makes me shudder thinking about it. I can deal with the ones going up...just.

    Aeroacrophobia- Fear of open high places

    I LOVE planes, but I'd find myself very scared if I stood on the edge of s tall building for fear of jumping off lol (is that irrational?)

    And maybe claustrophobia. :nopity:

    I have trouble with both, on the up ones I'm ok until a certain height and then it feels like the step is closing in around my feet and my legs feel like jelly :p: And on the down ones.. well, it's really getting on them in the first place and the first down bit that scares me, after that sometimes I can walk on them!
    Ah it's a weird one =/

    I was once in Horsham in Sussex and accidently stumbled into a field of cows and had a panic attack. :no:

    I am so glad Cravendale don't show these adverts any more, they were my worst nightmare.

    Ornithophobia - fear of birds. It's not quite irrational, I don't think. All my friends take the mick... I think this may be due to my reaction to birds though... I tend to cry, freeze and if they're lucky, maybe a little vomit.

    The feathers;
    How many germs must be on them things?
    The hard bit in them, are they bones?
    Does it hurt them if they fall out?
    They feel gross.

    The wings;
    They move too fast.
    How do they not bend backwads when they fly?
    How thin are teh bones in them things?

    The legs;
    THEY HAVE CLAWS!
    They're scabby and pink.

    The head;
    There's no seperation between the face and the neck - it's just one column.
    It's a relitivly small head.

    The becks:
    Is it a nose or a mouth?
    Is it both?!
    What is it made out of, bone?
    No teeth?

    The eyes:
    THE EYES ARE THE WORST THING.
    THEY'RE SO BEADY AND BLACK - THEY HAVE NONE OF THE WHITE BITS.

    THERE ISN'T ANY WHITE BITS IN THEIR EYES!
