    I have been wondering if it's unusual to be scared of "water", as in you develop a fear every time you close your eyes as you're in the swimming pool (deep end) of sharks etc

    Death.
    Deep water (e.g. the ocean).
    Injections.
    Social situations.
    Lifts.

    Fears are normal, but they're almost always irrational.

    Dead insects. I'm okay with them when they're alive but when they are dead it grosses me out.

    i have lepidopterophobia. This means that I have a huge fear of insects with big wings. I'm terrified of Butterflies, Moths and especially Dragonflies. I have no clue what caused this, but i end up hyperventilating and freaking out even when i see one. It sucks.

    I possess a phobia named Megalohydrothalassophobia. It's a fear of big things in water. I'd probably die of a heart attack if I was swimming in the sea and I saw a blue whale or a submarine coming towards me :rofl: Typing it into google images brings up a bunch of images that make me uncomfortable :zomg:

    I used to s*** myself when I first passed my test every time it came to driving. I used to get really bad anxiety over it and I was just like "OMG who TF put me in charge of a ****ing vehicle!!!???" :rofl: The more you drive, though, it goes away. Been driving 4 and a half years now and think nothing of it, in fact I sometimes go for a drive when I just need to clear my head and have a bit of time to myself to just play some music, enjoy the drive and I come home all chill

    Becoming blind
    Me too.

    I've recently started to have to monitor my blood glucose as I'm at significant risk of diabetes - diabetic retinopathy is the leading cause of blindness in adults. It terrifies me.

    spiders, I see a spider I just freeze for about 5 minutes before I have the courage to run away. Normally I'd stay out of the room the spider is in for about 45 minutes before I think it's safe enough to walk back in
