    I'm just wondering what types of (common or unusual/odd?) phobias everyone else has?
    I have way too many... I'm kind of a paranoid person to begin with...

    I'm afraid of:
    the dark
    deep water
    seaweed
    birds flying overhead
    walking under bridges
    caves
    flying
    chocolate pudding [that's actually a funny story. lol]
    wide open spaces
    cramped spaces
    ELEVATORS
    people [yes. people in general.]
    objects flying at my face
    getting ice cubes caught in my throat
    body hair [not sure why... I just don't like it on ME. I wax my arms constantly, along with the rest of me and when I was younger- I shaved my eyebrows. AHH!]
    popping balloons
    Things like fireplaces with chimneys, or garbage chutes... because people *could* break in! [extremely unlikely though. probably impossible... haha]

    ...lots of crazy things- too much to list!
    There's so much that freaks me out! No wonder I never go outside XD

    Are we talking actual phobias here or just things we fear?

    My biggest phobias are:

    being sick/someone near me being sick
    social phobia
    phobia of heights
    claustrophobia

    btw what happened with the chocolate pudding? lol

    haha~
    well... back in kindergarten; I think- I told all the kids in my class that chocolate pudding was actually poop.
    After telling them that for so long, I grossed myself out and now I can't stand to even look at it anymore >.<

    --And I guess that it's fears in general, as well.
    I'm not sure how I should class my fears and phobias... I've never really thought about it before.

    I'm afraid of crowds,
    elevators,
    spiders,
    crabs(because they look like spiders)
    the dark
    heights
    the unknown
    being put on the spot

    I have a huge fear of being isolated somewhere and be stuck there..

    I'm also afraid of traveling buses, to sit in between seats cramped up next to the window, I get panic attacks and I feel like its too small...thank god normal buses aren't like that...

    housing. losing what i've built over this year. it's taken around 2.5 years to settle down in my flat and my health improved so much when i did that although it was difficult to stay put.

    I used to have lots of phobia's as a kid, but I've gotten over most of them as I grew older, like the dark or spiders, insects or even disease.

    Phobia's:
    Claustrophobia
    Social Phobia
    Fear of house being burgled

    ^All I can think of
