Haha, mine are kinda silly. I have a phobia of thunder storms and getting electrocuted, to the point of hiding under my bed or far away from my windows when there's a storm and making sure not to touch electric poles and hanging wires on the street. Also, claymotion. Any movie with it are movies I avoid. I don't know why, they just unsettle me a lot since I was young.

@transgerine ayyy hello fellow asexual! I'm aro/ace myself :3

I have pretty bad emetophobia, to the point that I'd never work in a restaurant, amusement park, or healthcare because of it. Only from other people, though. Being sick myself is miserable but it doesn't terrify me. I'm also really scared of daddy-longlegs/harvestmen, the creepy arachnids that look like a big dot on long spindly legs. Oddly enough, I'm perfectly fine with basically any other arachnid, and I actually really like spiders.

Needle phobia? Hold on a mo- Google says it's trypanophobia. I always get super worked up about vaccinations and blood tests, to the point that I'd almost faint (after it was over, bc I can). I hyperventilate and my blood pressure skyrockets. :woo:

My biggest fear is the dark - I’m just terrified of being alone in it, even in my own house.
I also hate clowns - and dolls!

Eugh.

maislecakes that's understandable, lots of spoopy stuff. You can't see anything in the dark, who knows what's lurking...and who knows what clowns are truly thinking/feeling. Same with dolls, their creepy unmoving faces...eugh is right.

My biggest phobia has always been spiders, even typing the word freaks me out. Huge fear. Lucky enough to live in a place where it's too cold so they aren't that common, but we do have insects like daddy long legs, and the biggest we have is wolf spiders.
I watched a documentary (covering my eyes a lot) of people overcoming their phobias, and one of the groups was arachnophobia. Maybe more terrified than I was, the lady could barely go to parks with her kids because of it. The only way they were able to overcome the phobia was to face it, and I completely get that. But I don't know if it's worth it, though I would love to travel I don't know if I could handle possibly seeing more spiders than I've ever been used to seeing here. Seriously, when summer hits and the daddy long legs come out I'm on edge going outside and it's not uncommon for me to scream/hyperventilate.

(sorry that was long lol)

I just have the usual stuff. I despise spiders, still get spooked a bit in pitch black darkness, but one thing I really, really, REALLY don't like is going upside down. I don't know if it's a phobia but I just hate it so much.

I have a couple of phobias. One phobia is bees and wasps. Anything yellow and black striped, or those horrid all black wasps. I don't know why, but for some reason I'm extremely afraid of bees. Any time I see one I just scream and run away, even if there's only one of them, I just can't force myself to be anywhere near them. Someetimes I'll see or hear a buzzing and freak out before I even know what it is, and I'll turn around and see that it was just a fly or some other harmless bug.


Then there's mannequins. The ones with faces like you'd see in stores are fine, but the old time cloth and/or metal sewing mannequins with just a blank, featureless head are the ones I'm afraid of. They're disturbing and creepy, even in a fully lit room, but when they're in a half lit or mostly dark room its terrifying.

I have a weird fear of things in/touching belly buttons. I don't know why but even just thinking about it really freaks me out.
