Many people suffer from Obsessive Compulsive Disorder(OCD). Even more suffer from phobias.
I suffer from Grammatical Pedantry Syndrome. This is a recently discovered form of OCD. It was thought that people who went on correcting other people's grammatical mistakes were just annoying. But it is found that people like those including me, are suffering from OCD.
I am terrified of dogs. This type of phobia is known as Cynophobia.
I would like to know if you suffer from any OCD(s) and phobias. Is yes, what did you do to get rid of it/them?
I hate spiders (arachnophobia). ..not to the point where I need counseling or anything but DAMN they creep me out... If I see one in my house my immediate response is STEP ON THAT @#$%!
Terrified of the dark, always have been. If all the lights are out, I get completely paralyzed and hyperventilate.
I can understand your fear. As a child, I was terrified of the dark too; even now, sometimes. Mostly, I fear darkness because I am scared of evil spirits (which I believe have strong powers at night).
Thank you for sharing your experience AshtonFirefly. ☺
I suffer from spheksophobia (fear of wasps), which is especially unfortunate because I live in Southern Louisiana and they're pretty much everywhere here for most of the year. I also get very paranoid in complete darkness, but that's less fear of the dark and more fear of the unknown.

She can find any little black dot or speck in a food and not eat it. - Age 10 - Also she's at the complaining stage of not wanting to help with some chores around the house (unless there's a reward).
