    My cats hate you.

    Anyway, I am a bit scared of dogs, vomiting, velocity and tiny holes. The tiny holes one is the only one that freaks me out PROPERLY, and I suppose the velocity (I'm not sure if that's the correct term..) one affects me most (no theme parks, I don't like getting in people's cars in case they speed etc.) but none are proper phobias... I have a legitimate reason to hate velocity in that I hate the feeling on rollercoasters, like it doesn't scare me in a good way it just makes my stomach feel horrible and I just hate it.

    So no REAL phobias, no.

    From the age of 5 I've had this intense phobia of Mick Hucknall.

    It will not subside.

    I could possibly be the only type-1 diabetic with an ankle tattoo to have trypanophobia (fear of needles).

    Oh I have nightmares about dogs all the time. I mean, I'm ok with passing a dog in the street but if one lingers around my feet for too long, well that upsets me.

    Hmm, I once had a friend who had a phobia of veins; he couldnt even look at his own

    Where to start...
    Vomiting to the extent that I won't drink alcohol, each meat unless I've prepared it (avoid food poisoning)
    General Illness
    Germs
    Cancer
    Death in general

    I can directly blame my Dad for pretty much all of them, he's super neurotic. I seem to have internalised all his anxieties throughout my childhood. I often felt like he made a conscious effort to make me share his phobias. It's ****.

    Cats Cats Cats

    I have nightmares about them sometimes, like being chased by them, really big ones, coloured ones, ones with big fat necks, striped ones, purring ones.

    Typing about cats worries me.

    On a brightener note, my friend has a phobia of buttons. I know its evil but it really makes me laugh. Back in year 5, I accidentally offered her some chocolate buttons. She was not impressed.

    She laughs at my cat phobia *shivers*

    So, the question put forward to you, fellow TSRians is...

    Do you have any phobias/ know of any strange phobias.

    Lets just get it all out in the open
    You hate cats?

    You will never go on this then. My little bro loves it.

    My phobia...I hate going upside down... went on Colossus a few years back in Thorpe Park, hated it. And people and dog drool URRRGHHHHH!!!!!!

    PS: You really won't want to click my second spoiler tag either...

    Spiders, I was quite brave the other day and saw one when I was hoovering, from a distance it didn't look that big (it looked like, small money spider size) but when it was on my hand it was really so much bigger :sad:

    And, uh, I have a phobia of dolls/mannequins. Automatronophobia :ninja: Scare the **** out of me, I can't be in the same room as one and when they come on TV I freak, lol.

    Flying, I find it so frightening even if I think of it too much I start to cry. It's horrible, I wish I could stop being so scared, I used to be fine, flew back and forth to America even! I don't know what's made me this way, my dad is wary of flying and he did use to watch air crash investigation, and I've lately had a few bad flights. I think it's more the fear of death than being up in the air itself, it's knowing that if it were to crash, I'm done for.

    My fear is to the point when I constantly shake and silently cry all the way through the flight, the tiniest bit of turblence sends me wailing. It's so embarrassing and I know people are laughing at me but I can't help it, the fear is indescribeable, it feels like I am in full blown terror for the entire length of the flight.

    Any ways I could cure this? It's my dream to travel the world and I don't want to cut myself off.

    Spiders. Actually, the whole of the insect kingdom pretty much terrifies me, but Spiders are the worst. If I cant get away from them I scream and cry yet I know it's completely irrational, that's a specific phobia for you though.

    [QUOTE=xTash3007x]I'm scared of insects, I've literally not be in rooms for days if there's some sort of flying thing in there. Especially if it's a moth Why is it that so many people hate them, but not butterflies? QUOTE]

    I hate Butterflies, and ladybugs to mention it. Actually, anything that can crawl, land on me or fly has me running scared.

    Centipedes and tapeworms.


    Just thinking about them almost makes me vomit. I refuse to eat raw onions because they reminds me of tapeworms.

    The idea of living forever freaks me out too.
