I hate having phobias of things and I really want to conquer them. I used to be petrifed of rollercoasters and I have worked very hard to get over that. I have finally reached a stage where I can enjoy them once I have been on them before and know what to expect, but the first time is still very scary. It makes me feel so happy every time that I have been on one though, knowing that I'm slowly conquering a fear :)

Current phobias/fears:

Banks. I have no idea why. I get anxiety in banks, for no apparent reason! It's so odd and really irritating too.

Icy/snowy grounds because I am terrified that I will fall over and therefore a)embarrass myself and/or b)hurt myself. It is snowy/icy right now and walking to and from school today was horrifying. If it is any worse tomorrow (or even just as bad, depending on my mood), I am not going into school; I can't subject myself to the anxiety :/

Being sectioned or being taken into a psychiatric hospital. I have never experienced either of these things before, but I've read people's accounts of them and many of them sound really scary. I am also permanently in a state of fear that I will have one meltdown too many that will result in me causing too much damage and will therefore mean that I end up being sectioned or being taken into a psychiatric hospital.

I also have a fear of becoming deaf, so I never listen to loud music with headphones, and a fear of having nightmares, so I don't watch any films that look "too scary". It's odd because I hardly ever have nightmares!

Oh, and I think this is the last one; heights, but only when they are open, if that makes sense? If I am safe on the top floor of a building and I am looking out of the window, that's fine. But I cannot cope with being high up if I am not sort of 'boxed in', if that makes sense? For example, I can't do anything like rock-climbing or abseiling. I get really anxious and start crying. In June 2009 I went on a trip for five days at an activity centre with school, and one of the things we were scheduled to do was abseiling. I told the people that I really could not do it. They insisted I get kitted out and go up to the ledge anyway, and then if I didn't want to do it I could just tell them so and then I could walk back down again. I argued with them but they wouldn't listen. Anyway, eventually I got up there, and they made me stand right at the edge of the ledge. I told them that I wanted to go back down and they continued trying to persuade me. My eyes became focused on the ground below me and I started crying and shaking with fear. They told me that I could go back down now; the thing was, I was totally immobilised with fear and could not move myself. It took about 10 minutes of them talking to me and gently leading me away from the edge of the ledge before I could walk properly again. Totally humiliating as all of my classmates were watching too.

Dogs are scary, they're big, and they make loud noises, and they jump up at you, and sometimes they try to lick you, which brings you into proximity with the mouth which contains sharp teeth.

1. Arachnophobia, I'm not afraid of spiders biting me or anything it's just the way they move, it horrifies me.
2.Aquaphobia, I love swimming but going underwater or even seeing someone underwater ( even in pictures or on T.V ) makes me feel like I can't breathe.
3. Claustrophobia
4.Being exposed in public.
5.Phobias of government and god.
6.Apeirophobia
7.Ligyrophobia ( except when it come to music )
8.Demophobia
9.Gelotophobia
10.Anything on my face.
11.Not being able to breathe in any circumstance.
12.My biggest fear is change, not just to me but in books and movies too. ( For example I recently read Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows and when I read the epilougue the fact that they had grown up, had children, and their adventure had ended. This made me extremely depressed and I think as ridiculous as it sounds I would've rather had all the characters change than have their adventure end.)

There are probably more but I can't think of them.

I dont have many phobias, I'm scared of heights, though thats not too odd.
However, I have a phobia of Glitches yeah, pretty weird. I freaked out while playing Oblivion multiple times, and my addiction to modding dosent help either. Thats one game im not playing again :P

Meh, I think its a phobia, they freak me out, make me feel awful and feels like someone is driving a metal spike through my head at the same time, so, yeah.

I am completely terrified by maggots, if I even see them I get so scared that I feel physically sick. It's funny really I'm a big 6'3'' guy yet if I saw a maggot I'd gladly jump into someone's arms.

I'm not good with spiders, snakes or heights (I took up rock-climbing in order to get over this.)
.
And when I was a kid I had a serious phobia of people with deformities, and I had panic attacks when I saw them on T.V or anything, but I'm better with that now.

I am afried of strange looking things. When I was a young girl, I was afried of Aarvarks, E.T., and the Phillies Fanatic. Now I am still afried of the Phillies Fanatic, that thing was looks so strange and creepy. I don't see how little kids think it's cute. Yet I differ since I think scary clowns are hilarious and not scary.

Jellyfish. Heights, when I'm open to the air (from behind a window they don't give me a problem, but if you open the window then they terrify me).

I'm afraid of the dark/not being able to see, afraid of dead things, and of close spaces or not being able to move
