Im scared of flying, never been anywhere only England by ferry.
Im missing out on so much over this.
Tipperary I know your campaign for justice. Do not put extra pressure on yourself. The internet can do the travelling for you.
But you can overcome this fear.
Having said that I know how difficult it is to drive in the dark from fishguard or holyhead.
thanks for sharing your fear.
I'm s*** scared of birds, pigeons mainly which is great living in london
I'm afraid of orange ladybugs and little people clowns. I don't know why I'm afraid of orange ladybugs. I know why I'm afraid of little people clowns... bad haunted house experience, but I'm not afraid of regular clowns or regular little people.
can you tell us about that experience with little people clowns.
Well, I went to a haunted house with some friends. I was around 12 years old and easily frightened. In one room, there were lights flashing and what appeared to be statues of little people clowns. It smelled like cotton candy. I walked past one of the "statues," which was holding a knife. I guess some of the props were real because the little person clown lunged at me and hit me in the leg with his knife. I wasn't seriously injured but I was very afraid and I started running. The little person clown immediately felt very bad and wanted to help me so he started chasing me through the rooms. His mistake was that he didn't put the knife down as he was trying to catch up with me. So, as I ran through the horrors (The other actors didn't know I was injured), I kept hearing the little person clown behind me, "Come back here, little girl. Come back here, little girl!" By the time I finally got out of this "fun" house, I ran into a woman dressed as a vampire and she also didn't know I was bleeding so she tried to scare the crap out of me. It worked and I ran even faster, finally couldn't take running on the leg any longer and hid behind a pine tree in the parking lot. This is where the little person clown caught up with me. I was too tired to run anymore so I put my head between my legs and started crying. He finally realized he still had the knife in his hand and he dropped it and took off his mask. But ever since then, I won't go near haunted house attractions unless I know for a fact that there will be no little people clowns. I had nightmares for months afterwards.
some lady bugs bite. no joke.
i swear. i know its unbelievable, but one crawled on me and pinched me, and i looked down and there was a tiny bead of blood like a pin pricked me!
nobody likes to be bitten, lady bug phobia explained.
Be afraid of me then !
I don't know in feet, but I'm 1.80 meters
don't torment the man. Next thing you will be telling him you are calling round with a litre of vodka. Are you a sadist?
I have a fear of leaving my house, and crowds. With crowds I get to where I cannot breathe. When leaving the house I have to go on planned excursions. I am always afraid that I am going to be arrested for no reason, which has happened to me several times in this county. I probably leave the house about once every two weeks or maybe less than that if i am having a rough time.
Never used to bother me when I was younger, but over the last several years I have developed a fear of heights.
I used to be somewhat scared of leaving my house. Now I come and go and everything is fine.
In fact any food that I dont make myself, or by a friend.
i'm deathly afraid of spiders and vomiting.
i assume i must have died by spider bite one lifetime? i don't know what would make me so scared of spiders.
and vomiting too. *shrugs* some things the world may never know...
Recently I seem to be developing a fear of tractor trailers, which I have been trying to keep under control. I am grateful for them because they help transport most of our goods. However, I can't seem to help think of how much damage they cause in a accident. Hopefully it will be a short lived phobia.
I recently became aware of 2 phobias that I have developped. One is of mice. I absolutely hate mice and I don't know where that came from. The other thing is my fear of injuring myself. Its to the point that I won't ski anymore for fear of falling. Weird, because I used to love to ski and I never had a bad fall. Maybe its because I don't know how I would manage with 3 kids if ever I was incapacitated. hard to say...
I'm scared of something coming out of the toilet and biting my balls, sort of like in that 80's film classic Ghoulies...truly terrifying!!
I'm afraid of people when they're really out of their mind, and become dangerous.
I had a gripping fear of heights that controlled me for years. Fortunatly, I was able to face this fear in 2004 by climbing a fire escape in L.A. for a new reality t.v. pilot (never aired). Since then, it's been a lot better. I'm still scared of open places with no solid wall between me & the ground, but other than that, I'm doing very well. I can do escalators and open stairwells, too. So fears can be conquered but in baby steps, ya know? Desensitization....
A couple of obvious things - needles, falling (i maintain I am not afraid of hieghts, only of hitting the ground from a great hieght) - but I do have a bit of an odd one. When I was a kid I was staying at a friend's and she had all these porcelain dolls lined up on her wardrobe. I was sure they were moving and made her turn them around...then I was sure they were going to be facing me in the morning...Don't think they were but it terrified me and to this day I have to avert my eyes whenever I see one. They just look like frozen children that could move at any second...scares me silly.
i scare of deep sea
i feel scary whenever i think of it.
don`t scare of anything else as bad as it.
i don't think i have any phobias. but my mother-in-law, jeez! she's deathly afraid of cockroaches. whenever she'd see one, she would run around flailing and screaming "it's in my hair, eeeee!" funniest thing i ever saw!
ooops. if wifey sees this, i'm dead. gotta run.
I hear ya. They are usually the most uncomfortable people to be around. always feeling judged and looked down on. I remember turning around halfway through a walk with my two daughters to return home to get my wedding rings after i saw (or imagined)two ladies tsk-tsking when they saw me walking with children and no rings. can you believe that? that is def what phobias are made of.
Oh dear, I hate it when these bible humping do gooders do that, especially when they knock on your door and say Could I leave this leaflet about Jesus having to be killed on a cross to save us all, I mean who does that, I sure wouldn't go on a cross just to save someone, what a load of pant wetting rhubarb!
And then they look at what you're wearing and your appearance and you can see their minds working overtime probably thinking yes we can turn them into jesus' disciples praise the lord!!!!
Flying. I just don't understand why 5 or 6 miles of nothinginess between you and the ground would make anyone feel free, excited or elated.
Flying is only for birds, dreams and Superman.
I'm afraid of heights, water and horribly claustaphobic. Instant panic where that's concerned. So much so I will be cremated. I know I won't know one way or the other but.............

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?

Why are some children scared of clowns?

What One Thing Scares You The Most?For me it just has to be clowns! Even as a kid I was scared of them. At a local annual fair they used to have two clown figures at the entrance gate when I was kid, I used to hold my Dad's hand real tight and shut my eyes when passing by them!!

What causes Coulrophobia or fear of clowns?I have a friend who’s scared of clowns (girl) I just learned that this phobia is called Coulrophobia so is a legit phobia. But I’m just curious what causes it? I thought clowns were supposed to be funny and make us smile. How come they scared of them?
