    The only thing that really freaks me out is probably spiders. And cheap lager (eugh), but mostly spiders.

    I can deal with like injections to a degree (like jabs in school), but even then I have anxiety attacks haha. Cannulas are my arch nemesis because they never stay in my hand and just screw with my head (it's like the thought of something being in my vein just freaks me out). My veins are all ****ed up from a genetic condition so the people who try and get blood from me or put cannulas in just consistently mess up. They make me have panic attacks and I've actually refused IVs when really ill and stuff because of it. I also can't look at needles either.


    I think I know why I have this phobia though (will spare you the details), so gonna work on getting rid of my fear/phobia relating to it soon - kinda need to because of my health.

    I used to be iffy with heights but then I got a job that partly involved working at height (sometimes up to 300 feet up) and it just got better. I still won't teeter on the edge of a cliff but I'm a million times better than I was. I think exposure works, really.

    Ah, I getchu now. I think I had a similar fear when I was younger coz I used to overthink back then....now....I just don't care xD Still I can't seem to use this when I encounter a medium to large sized spider, fakkers are x10 horrifying in real life than on vids or tv and even then they give me goosebumps...

    Best of luck man, this is one phobia I still have today (but nothing compared to arachnophobia). I used to cry my face off when I saw syringes, even when I was like 11 years old. Only when I turned 13-14, I was able to suppress my emotions.

    Something could grab me in the night. Unresolved child fear lol I don't feel creeped when I see spiders but the fear of them spreading venom or sudden defensive movements or crawling in my ear terrify me :afraid:

    Failure. Sometimes I don't try things because I just hate that feeling when you fail at something. Suppose in a way it's good, cause I make sure I'm thoroughly prepared for whatever it is I'm attempting to succeed at and usually succeed one way or another, but I just try and avoid the feelings of disappointment and depression that come on immediately after failure. If I wasn't afraid of failing I could probably actually succeed even more, and failing in the past has ultimately never had a lasting negative effect on my life.
