I have a needle phobia. As soon as I say it, people just say oh right and dismiss it. Why? Because no one likes needles - right? Maybe not, but a phobia is so much more. My phobia has caused me great distress - when I fell pregnant, going for a blood test was traumatic. The epidural I had to have in order to have an emergency caesarean nearly drove me insane. And I mean that literally. As soon as I see a needle I physically react. I become aggressive and violent if I think its coming my way. Size doesnt matter in this case- it could be a baby needle I would react the same. The "best" injection I ever had took a nurse four hours to give me and that was because she was a supremely kind human being who I will never forget. Anyway, I'll stop ranting now!
My mom has a phobia of snakes. She can't even say the word, infact I have never heard her say it. She had therapy for it a couple of years ago and at least now she can hear the word without freaking out!! I wasn't allowed to ever own anything snakeskin effect or even to WATCH the Jungle Book growing up!!

Do you have any phobias?I'm terrified of flying and needles have been known to make me faint. I'm wondering how many people have phobias, what they are and how you deal with them.
