My phobia is very strange but a slightly common one, it is the phobia of failure.
Spiders for sure... they are so scary. I think the fact that they can slip in and poison me without even being seen scares me the most. If I see a spider, I'm not scared to kill it. I just worry that it might disappear then reappear when I do not have my guard up.
Spiders are sneaky little boogers.
I feel my phobia is ophidiophobia or the fear of snakes! I simply DON'T LIKE SNAKES! I don't like even looking at film footage of them. We sometimes get snakes around our house, and just the thought that this can happen is enough to make me feel like I could throw-up. I can't talk myself out of it. It doesn't matter whether or not the snake is poisonous. I just can't handle being around them!
Heights......without a doubt. It's actually a morbid fear. I become light-headed and nauseous, simply LOOKING up and imagining being that high up. I don't know when or how I developed this particular phobia, but I've not been able to overcome it.
I have vivid frightening memories of the waves of panic I have experienced, on occasions when I found myself looking way down from where I happen to be standing. The severe physical reaction includes rapid heart beat, hyperventilating, I've even burst into tears.
Any other minor phobia I may have, pales in comparison to heights.......Can you imagine being in Paris, France and not going up the Eiffel Tower? I couldn't even watch my family reach the top!
I'm afraid of heights. I can climb high buildings but I can't be there for a long time and I can't look down. I will feel dizzy then.
All my life I have been afraid of the dark. I must have been born that way because I can't remember when I wasn't. I feel all crawly in the dark, like something is crawling on me. My parents would never let me sleep with a light on, so I'm not afraid of the dark when I'm in bed, and I can't sleep unless the room is pitch black.
