  • Two dogs attacked me when i was 10-12 years old, one of them bit me very close to my neck. I am 23 now and i donĀ“t feel comfortable when i hug people, they get too close to it. Watching vampire movies are a terrible idea... i get urges to cover my neck with my hands and end up holding my breath at bite scenes.
    Go figure, but it sure is quite irrational, i know :)

  • my biggest fear is fire. and spiders. any bug in general actually. I'm even afraid of butterflies. it sounds stupid, i know. but there's just something about bugs that terrifies me.
    and when i was little, whenever i would have a bath I'd fear that a shark would somehow make its way up the drain of my bathtub and eat me. i guess i had a wild imagination as a kid, haha.

    • Yeah, usually it's how it works, but I don't wanna do it just yet xD

    • Don't blame you, its hard to make yourself just deal with things like that. Still haven't faced my fire fear though, I'll get comfortable with knives then work on that

  • well I have social anxiety so there's that... I also hate flying even though I know it's much safer than travelling by car.

  • Does perfectionism count? 😕 lol
    I guess I don't have any of the types of fear you're referring to, none come to mind. What about you?

    • Haha well sadly I'm afraid of several things, knives, fire, spiders, parasites, germs, (I'm really weird about heights), tornadoes, responsibility lol some of these more so than others though.

    • Thanks. Same for your fears. :)

    • Thank you :)

  • Large ships. I don't mind sailboats, canoes, or other small boats, but being on or around large ones creeps me out.

    • Haha it's understandable but I feel like I'd be the opposite, the smaller the boat the more afraid I'd be :p

    • *cut up by propellers

    • Hmmm well good point, ok bigger boats are scarier

  • Nope I used to but I outgrew or rather got stronger then the thing (s) I was afraid of.

    • Haha that's a pretty good one. I'd probably be more scared of the grizzly though

    • Show All
    • Since 2010 only 10 people in north American have been hurt or killed by grizzly bears in that same time 240 000 people were killed traffic accident in the us alone so I'm not to worried

    • Well most people don't live in a place where they are likely to run in to one in their daily lives. For the original inhabitants of California, they were a daily health hazard.

  • Ummm
    -cockroaches
    - any insect that's not a small ant actually lol
    - The worst was cemeteries. I used to faint only by seing one from afar and would get panic attacks only by seeing them on TV or pictures... I had nightmares about it for around 5 years almost every single night! It all started when I was 9 and decided to pick up a newspaper and read it. There was an article talking about how many people in Iraq had to burry their relatives in their front yards or backyard because of the war ( not enough places in cemeteries and too dangerous to go out and burry them) it traumatized me deeply specially when I saw the picture attached to the article!
    But I completely got over it 3 years ago and I even go for a walk in some of nice historical Parisian cemeteries 😊

  • Deep, dark waters is a fear of mine. I love crystal blue oceans and such, but when it gets dark... no thanks.

  • - Walking past cars where the driver is sitting in the car

    - Walking alone when it's dark outside. I constantly feel like someone is following me even if the streets are EMPTY

    - Cats and dogs

    • Yeah, especially when I am in an elevator.. With tons of people!!! Body cringes! What is yours? :)

    • Haha I could write a paragraph, mostly common things like spiders, tornadoes, deep water... oh and maybe a little less common... parasites, the thought of them freaks me out lol

  • I'm afraid of being murdered or drowning.
    The second has never affected me in any way though. I love swimming and all that jazz.

    Nothing irrational though

    • Yea I love swimming but I've yet to go in water over my head. I hate the thought of not being able to touch bottom

    • I will in a pool, but not even close when it comes tot he ocean! I won't go over waist deep. I went chin deep and as a wave came over my face so did a jellyfish. I barely dodged it.

    • Oh yea that'd be scary having a jelly fish almost hit your face

  • I'm absolutely terrified of vomitting. Even the word bothers me.
