I remember when I was young my parents
kept a scary looking record cover called THE
ROLLING SILENCE by Manfred Mann in
the 1970's among their record collection.
I would run away from the house or lock
myself in my room when my parents would
take the record cover out to show me.
The cover is scary looking; it's a patina
green color with a screaming mouth inside
this giant ear. My parents called it the
Mouth in the Ear and would tease me saying
that the Mouth and the Ear was gonna get me!
I remember tackling my older sister to the
ground one time because she was reaching
for the album in the cabinet. She thought it
was it funny that I was overeacting to just
a stupid album cover, but I was in panic
Years ago I had my parents tear the
album cover into shreds while I hid in my
room. I hope that they did! Yeah, I know
it seems crazy and silly, I am pretty much over
the fear but every now and then it comes
to my mind in the
middle of the night BOO lol
Fear of lossing my step and falling
and im afraid of the face of the Exorcist
I have a real fear of Roller Coasters and feel if I go on one, something might go wrong with my head. Even as a kid, while all the other kids were happy and smiling on the little roller coasters, I was the only kid crying to my parents "I wanna get off".
Watching Final Destination hasn't helped either.
when I was a little girl, I used to be afraid to open my oldest brothers closet where the ouiga board was, then my mom moved it down into the basement... so I would get the creeps every time I went into the basement. I covered it and hid it under the stairs.
The only thing I am fearful of is getting stuck in an elevator and the breaks giving out. I take the stairs most of the time but if I have to I suck it up and take the elevator.
It's not a fear just being uncomfrotable with driving around big rigs, I hate when they are all around me, blocking me in so I can't get out around them.
They have too many legs! Nothing should have that many legs! I can't even handle little money spiders...I shiver at the thought.
Funny i was looking up spiders yesterday just to read and learn, i never knew a camel spider existed check it out
camel spider? wow I have to see that and nope no fear of spiders.
Spiders are creepy, and I hate it when birds fly inside the house. I have no problem with them outside, but if they fly in the kitchen while I'm sitting there having lunch, I am under the table like a shot. Seriously. I don't want to get a bomb dropped on my sandwich.
Snakes are terrifying too.
well since you said irrational I have a fear of....HAIR- ok let me explain loose hair, clumped hair in a drain, hair balls on the floor, etc. When I was younger I use to pay my brother to clean my brushes out, and when he wanted to be mean he would chase me around the house with a handfull of hair.......Aaaagh! Lastly, bugs, all except Ladybugs and butterflies..... I know now you all must think I'm a freak!
For some reason I fear heights like crazy but in a odd way. If I am in an airplane it really does not bother me at all. But if I am walking up open stairs you know those ones that are metal and you can see though I get up about 4 flights and I freeze up in most cases HAHAHA there my deep dark secret
There was a hell of a funny scene years ago. Our friend's neighbour had a mole snake in their yard. So my brother went round there with a shovel, and I was given a bottle. This friend of ours, who was completely bonkers and drunk, said, "Get the snake's venom in the bottle." Mole snakes aren't venomous as far as I know.
My brother ended up chopping the thing's head off with the shovel and throwing it in the bin, wrapped up in a plastic bag.

We all have phobias without exceptions, but the question is, how do we generate them? Some people are afraid of spiders (Arachnophobia) but others don't, some are afraid of funny things like fear of number 13 (Triskaidekaphobia)! Why is that?

Now there is Islamophobia, so wondering especially in light of all the hatred for Christians and ridicule of Christians, including here on HubPages, if there should be a new "phobic" called Christianphobic? Of course, then the "hate speech" rule would have to apply to this...

Do you have an irrational fear? If yes, what is it?

Feinstein doesn't know what the things she is trying to ban actually are. When you ask her, she can't answer. For example, she thinks a barrel shroud is a 'shoulder thing that goes up'. Clearly, her desire to ban those 'shoulder things that go up' is a rational, logical decision, right?A young girl...

Hi! I am currently planning to take my 3.5 year old daughter on a short trip to the US. The problem is I have developed this irrational fear of flying. It's never been a problem with me before I had my daughter. I used to fly at least once or twice a year, every year, and I...

What are you afraid of?When you were a little kid you were scared of the dark, and "monsters". What scares you as an adult, a phobia, a thing or something else?
