    am definitely germaphobic, I can mentally see the cloud of germs around someone when they cough or sneeze. I hold my breath and close my eyes until I am away from the imaginary cloud. If I wash my hands and bump the towel dispenser the tiniest bit, I have to wash up again. I get worse and worse, my imagination is causing me major inconvenience! I am also afraid of heights and some bugs, definitely maggots, but ants are the worst for me. I have so many more, but not as bad as germs, heights, ants and maggots.

    It's weird. But I am afriad of bees and butterflies. I am afraid of butterflies because I had to go into one of those butterflie rooms and it was all humid and gross. So now i think that all butterflies are sticky and wet and slimy and just discusting. But this is the main one, my fear of bees. I sat on a log with a bee hive in it once. I got stung more than 30 times on the back of my leg and it hurt like hell. Ever since then I have been scared to death of bees.

    yep, I do, though I have yet to find the name for it. I have a fear of getting my blood drawn. I go into hysterics, and start to cry, I clench my arms together and refuse to budge. It took 3 people, to get my (a kid) blood drawn

    I fear snakes.

    Here's the weird part: My fear of small snakes is far greater than my fear of large snakes. Confusing, but true.

  • I have spiderphobia. THEY FREAK ME OUT! I won't even kill a small spider. Right after I see a spider I always feel like a bunch of them are crawling on me and like I have to keep brushing them off. I always look everywhere to make sure there are no spiders near me. I hate spiders!
