  • I have a phobia of the sea now. I got stung by a bunch of jellyfish in Malaysia, left the ocean red all around me (though my leg got bitten off). Lifeguard ran towards me (I was pretty far out) and pulled back and then immediately a medical team cam eand injected my leg multiple times with something. I couldn't walk for months -- lost all feeling in that leg until it gradually came back little by little.

    Now I always have a bit of a fear of the sea -- not enough to prevent me from swimming, but I'm always afraid of what lurks beneath the waters, hidden from my eyes.

  • I used to have Emetophobia, which is the irrational fear of vomiting or pertaining to it. I've got it under control now, but there was a period in my life it was pretty bad.

  • Emetophobia (fear of vomiting). Stupid and dangerous (?) I guess. And it's surprisingly a phobia too. The thought of me vomiting makes me terrified and sometimes nauseous

  • While naturally there are certain fears in my life I don#t have a phobia as those fears aren't affecting my life and choices. It's just a feeling being there, but not controlling me.

  • Dromophobia, fear of crossing streets. I get sweaty and my heart starts to beat if I have to cross a road that seems just remotely busy. Takes me long to walk to work and back as I'm always extra cautious. I'm even afraid of cyclists or scooters on the road. I really just don't like crossing roads :/ :(

  • Coimetrophobia
    I used to be super scared of cemeteries, even in pictures/movies I would freak out and have nightmares even Panic attacks when I was younger, but I completely got over it by the age of 18 and even take a walk in the cemetery sometimes.

  • A few years ago I had a terrible fear of being outside. I couldn't leave my house. It progressed to the point where I could only be in three room of my house, ( my bedroom, bathroom, kitchen) otherwise it would induced a panic attack. This fear was brought on by a series of traumatic events in my life. I got help and it vanished almost overnight.

  • I'm scared of oblivious people. They recklessly endanger others in so many ways. Sometimes I'll even see someone with that particular mentally unpresent look they get in their eye and feel fight or flight response to the overwhelming anxiety.

  • I have a phobia for stone fish. Haven't have to deal with the pain of one but they are said to be very painful if you step on one. You can't see the bottom once in a decent depth and I fear stepping on one. The only pain remedy for them is hot water and time.

  • I don't really have a phobia per say, that's more serious. I do consider myself to have social anxiety and be at least somewhat of a hypochondriac.

    Blood does freak me out but I don't have a phobia of it. I don't like needles, sharp things, jello, or heights either. But those aren't phobias. Just dislike them greatly on different levels.
