    Probably being lazy.
    I'm not afraid to admit I do have some irrational fears of my own.


    One of them is heights.
    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    I am deathly afraid of them.....deathly afraid. I cant even go a story high, let alone any more than that. If I end up having to, and I see even a glimpse off the side, even through a window or any other barrier, then I usually shake and shudder uncontrollably with fear, usually right before I run the other way. I've been this way since who knows when. Kinda ironic compared to my username.

    My other phobia are Bees.......I hate bees....I'm always afraid of getting stung, yet I never have once in my life.

    And Needles.....*wimper*..*bloodtests*....*wimper*

    Apart from that, I think that covers my phobias.

    I have a few things I am afraid of, most of them pretty small.
    Still these are the things that scare the shit out of me.
    1. Maggots. God there is just something about them I just don't like.
    2. Heights.
    3. Enclosed spaces.
    4. Being alone.
    and 5. The dark, if you lived through what I lived through, this would make a lot of sense.

    Megalophobia
    I hate huge inflatable things.
    Hot air balloons, floats, large helium filled balloons.
    I just feel uneasy around them as they could easily pop and swallow you up I guess. Probably a link to claustrophobia there too though I'm generally alright in confined spaces like elevators as long as they won't collapse any second.

    Anyone else feel queasy around hot air balloons?

    I'm afraid of...

    Greys (Type of alien) - Not just any alien, but greys. They look so freaky. This has also spawned a fear of the dark, but only when I'm trying to go to sleep. I'll always look over at my window, hoping there isn't a grey staring in it or whatnot. I've been sleeping with my TV on for the past MONTHS because of it (I used to just sleep with nothing on, except my fan).

    Tornadoes - Never saw one in real life, and I never want to.

    Heights - I get sick and dizzy just thinking of high places. Looking up at high places also does that same thing, and of course looking down FROM high places.

    Death/Eternity in Heaven - It's always been a thought of mine. Like, once I die, and I'm in heaven forever...It just seems mind boggling thinking about eternity.

    Insects - I find most insects revolting, disgusting, and I sometimes gag on sight of them. Especially things like centipedes, slugs (Not actually insects, but I consider them to be insects), maggots etc. Creepy, crawly, slimy insects are the worst.

    --Heights: If I am not standing/sitting/whatever on a stable floor and I'm high enough off the ground to break bones, then I'm scared.
    --Bugs: I don't know what it is about bugs, but they freak me out. All kinds of bugs, actually. I get creeped out and want to smack imaginary bugs off myself.
    --Disasters: I get freaked out really bad. There was a tornado warning around here around a month ago, and I was sitting in the designated safe area of the house until it was over, slowly trying not to imagine what would happen if the disaster struck the house. I get freaked out just imagining it.
    --Clumps of holes, usually randomly-sized but mostly small: It's called Trypophobia. I have it pretty bad. If the holes are small and/or tiny, I will freeze up on the spot, close my eyes, begin to itch all over, and whimper for around ten to thirty minutes. The worst freak outs are caused by a photoshopped evil called Lotus Boob.
    --Lamprey Fingers: Self explanatory. Sure, it's just a photoshop, but holy SHIT. Just thinking about it makes me rub my hands together and have to constantly make sure my fingers aren't lamprey fingers, too.
    --Crowds: I don't know what it is about crowds...
    --Being around people: Mild fear, but still, I don't know what causes this one... I think I just don't want to make faux pas....
    --Being alone: It's just so creepy being alone. I mean, not hearing anyone else talk? Not seeing anyone else?
    --Doctors: Just the thought of ANY doctor doing anything to me.... I mean, sure, it'd be a medical procedure, but...

    Me too.

    Clowns - Don't really know why.

    The Dark - Well not so much anymore. Probably because of the alien thing.

    Yes
    Here's a Phobia List, for those of you who don't know specific names or want to know about more phobias.

    Nowadays, I have MUCH less phobias than before, just three:
    Spiders.
    It's not a fear, per se, more like repulsion to big, flying cockroaches. I can stand (and kill) medium-sized or small cockroaches.
    Death (mine or death of family or friends), being around corpses is not a problem.
    Deformity.

    I used to fear the dark, being alone, crowded places, car accidents, cars running at high speeds, crossroads, the sea, masks, heights, corpses and ghosts; but that was some time ago, and now I can stand all of them.

    I used to be afraid of heights, but I conquered that fear by going sky diving, it was a blast.
    The only other fear that I am currently aware of(not sure if there's a name for it) is the fear of something happening to my wife and child. I always get paranoid that something is going to happen to them almost every time they leave the house, it drives me crazy. Other than that I can't think of anything that I am aware of.

    Have have remnants of kinemortaphobia, the fear of zombies. This is due to the fact that I don't believe they exist but I also believe anything's possible, if the latter of the two wasn't true, I'd be over it. The phobia doesn't bother me unless I do something related to zombies, in which case my interior mental stability goes haywire at night time for about a week.

    The initial cause made me fear the night and unable to sleep for 3 months.

    Spiders- They got all those creepy little legs.

    Parasites- The idea of that is creepy and disturbing, especially since some rot off your skin and still have in your body. *Shudder*
