Found this web site.. interesting that some phobias have many names... perhalps because some are easier to pronounce :kickin:

many of them apply to Millennium such as Coulrophobia [ fear of clowns] and Stygiophobia [fear of Hell] and my very real phobia .. Taphephobia [ being buried alive] !! :eyes:

I used to have a phobia. I won't say which (maybe later), but I can say it nearly destroyed me. I guess I still have it, but I can control it now.

My main phobia would have to be spiders. Can't stand them.

I'm afraid of spiders, too. Although there are no poisonous spiders in my country, I would rather not be in the same room with any of those creepy things..

An example of my irrational behaviour when I happen to see a spider: one night I was reading a book cosily in my bed. Suddenly I noticed two or three long spider legs on the top of the book, indicating that the creature itself was crawling on the back of the book, and had been there, in my bed, for who knows how long. I screamed like a raving maniac, waking up my neighbour.. :embarassed:

While there are a lot of situations/creatures that I'd just as soon avoid, the only thing that really makes me begin to feel panicky is the open ocean with no land in sight. Back twenty+ years ago, I used to love the Jacques Cousteau TV programs but really had to get a grip on myself whenever there were shots of open ocean with no boats/humans visible and when there were underwater shots that gave a good feel for the almost unlimited depth of some of the waters they went diving in. My wife suggested that perhaps I was reincarnated from a sailor that had died at sea.

My older son has a similar reaction but only to scenes showing whales. She suggested that maybe he had been Jonah in a past life. :yes:

I AM AFRAID OF ANY KIND OF BEE
Has anyone noticed that phobias become more intense as we get older? :eyes: Perhaps we become more aware of our mortality and thus the "survival" instinct begins to kick in. Just a thought..anyway, the greatest fear i have is:

1. Heights - :cry::down::helpme:

A white knuckle flyer who has to be heavily sedated. I have a very hard time walking to the edge of oh, say, a building, a lookout, a clifftop, etc...you name it...i am able to look STRAIGHT out, but cant look straight down...

I have Agoraphobia. It's a kind of free-floating anxiety. It hits mainly when I'm in a crowded place, like a large, busy store. (Wal-Mart is NOT my friend!)

That.... and heights. (not crazy about some kinds of ants, but that's because I'm alergic to them)
