What is your phobia?

Mine is a fear of spiders. (I couldn't think of how to exactly spell that phobia.)

And that movie scared the daylights out of me, just the thought of one of those eight legged spawns of satan crawling on me makes me squirm. Ick!

See snakes I dont mind. I actually miss my pet ally, he was an albino corn snake, purely harmless, and a loveable little guy. =[

I don't know if I would say I'm "phobic" but there are a few things that freak me out: bees, wasps, snakes, etc.

If anything I am freaky about other types of things like all the hangers in my closet matching. LOL

Heights = acrophobia
Spiders = arachnophobia

That may qualify for OCD.

Arachnaphobia.

Although I do love the movie, the creepy-crawlies in person give me the heebie-jeebies.

I still have to look up at the shower head every morning, because of that movie.

That's OCD I have issues too!

I don't know if I have any true phobias, I don't like bugs or spiders of any kind.

My phobia is being in a lake, pond, or river with large fish. The ocean doesn't bother me, but if the water is not clear and I know (or suspect) there are large fish nearby, it creeps me out.

Anybody ever see the list of official Phobias? There is some bizarre stuff on there! Like "Fear of eating peanut butter because your tongue will stick to the roof of your mouth" kinda stuff!


I'll see if I can find it!

I agree!

I don't like spiders, hate snakes, and not big on heights, but I do like roller coasters and other amusement rides.
