    I have this phobia of people touching me that I don't like. If they touch me, I will scratch that part of my skin off.

    I also have a fear of things jumping on me - like frogs, crickets or grasshoppers - don't laugh it has happened to me. I once took my skirt completely off in public when a grasshopper jumped up in it.

    I also am afraid drains - sink, bathtub, swimming pools. SCARY

    Also deep, dark water is terrifying.
