    I have claustaphobia, which I guess isn't that weird. But I also have a phobia of meringues lol. I call it "meringue-a-phobia" :) Years ago when I had the flu I had a dream about pink meringues crowding me in and I've been afraid of them ever since.

    i actually do have a lot of strange phobias.

    i have normal ones- like fear of phones, water, small spaces, social situations..

    but strange ones:

    people with certain names. yep, really. freaks me out to the point where i just can't focus on anything- and can't say the names aloud

    icecream- not sure what triggers that one, but can't be in a room with it

    can't think of any other strange ones.. all the others are normal

    I don't overly love the number four; and I suppose I could explain why, but it probably wouldn't make sense to anybody but myself.

    I don't have a phobia of it, but I don't like the number 4 either! It used to be my lucky number, then I watched a scary film and there were 4 of something that scared me so ever since I've tried not to do anything 4 times.

    Some of these may be strange or unreasonable, some may not. Fear of rats and mice, spiders, well basically any bug except butterflies, which I actually like. I have a fear of pitch blackness and total quiet, which is why power outages scare me. Strong storms scare me, especially if there's lots of lightning. Snakes, fear of things falling on me (like airplanes, meteors, or even tv's that are high up on a shelf), sometimes being touched by people, especially strangers. Also very tall people intimidate me a bit, because then I feel small and insignificant :p I know there's more and yeah I'm nuts lol.

    lol you're not nuts. I believe everyone in the world has some sort of odd phobia. I find the whole concept of it quite interesting :)

    I'm scared of velociraptors. I know that's stupid because they don't exist anymore, but ever since I saw jurassic park when I was 10, I would have nightmares of them. To this day, I am scared of them.

    I used to have an irrational fear of gas fires and stinging nettles. Don't even ask lol.

    I know you said don't ask...but I'm curious about how the nettles fear happened?

    Trying new things scares me, it's an unfortunate fear to have. Soooooooo clingy, can't help it.

    I'm also afraid that when I'm in the shower alone that I'm going to be attacked by something or someone behind the curtain, like when shampoo gets in my eyes I get so scared and try to wash it out as soon as I can so I can look outside my shower.

    I hate the little ceiling fans in bathrooms, I can't enter the room when one is on and have to grab a stick to turn it off.
