Neddles! I suffer everytime I need to get some blood test.

I'm afraid of spiders ... I can't get near them and I can't kill them because I think they want to kill me too. Especially when I can't kill them in the first try ... they remember ...

Aaaand I'm afraid of needles or to be more specific: Syringes ... I can't get vaccinated because I'm in panic and I feel like these little needles want my death.

And I'm afraid of the ocean ... even in games. When theres deep water, I always feel watched from below and I don't allow my characters to swim to far away from land. Playing AC: Black Flag is so fucking scary for me when I'm sailing and I need to jump in the water to get to a little island or when I'm hunting sharks and stuff. And the worst is: I really like the horror game SOMA but I will never play it because of the fact that it's playing underwater ... and a horror game x.x

Mannequins and dolls freak me out.

I have this intense fear of sharp objects, especially knives (the big sharp horror movie prop kind are the worst) and also needles. It's called Aichmophobia.

My only phobia is deep ocean-- the darkness of it and being dragged down...and yet I find it fascinating at the same time.
So I guess Thalassophobia? But it isn't super extreme..

Atychiphobia - Fear of Failure

I never noticed it until now...

Most likely very common;
Afraid of dark cramped places and falling asleep. 
I'm 24 and these fears are not as bad as they use to be but,
every now and then the fear kicks in.

Selachophobia - Morbid fear of sharks. ):
I've never seen one up close, but I have this phobia since childhood.
I can not even view photos. They give me despair.

spiders and falling through the tub floor of a second floor apartment or house. the floor of the tub just feels so weak, and thin, I'm frighten I'll fall straight through o-o); if I can help it I'll never go to the second floor for baths....

also I have a huge fear (I know it's childish!) of something creeping from the dark of my closet, so at night I find ways to make it so the closet door is locked at night. I kinda know how this fear started but the reason you guys would probably find too silly ^^; (the reason still scares the crap out of me though, I don't really know what I saw.)

Fear of needles, dark, tight/uncomfort places.. Also I am
feared of balloons.. It's funny since I know that it's been my
fear from childhood and it was hard to go birthday parties
since there was always balloons. If I see one I walk far away
From it or just stay there trying to thing something else which
wont distress... -v-'
Pip-chan Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Astraphobia, which is the fear of thunder and lightning, Claustrophobia, but in my case I don't fear the tight spaces, I fear the suffocation, Coulrophobia, fear of clowns, and finally, Achluophobia, I am TERRIFIED of the dark.
fokkykat Featured By Owner Jan 8, 2015
I have a phobia of slimy insects. Completely grosses me out where I might start shaking. I also hate being around puking. It's disturbing and disgusting and I can gladly live without it. Baby spit up doesn't bother me, though, lol.

the fear of heights for me

one time i went on this feild trip to the pg&e tower and we were walking across this large building (the top floor) you could see the bottom and the people on the other side were wondering why i was keeping them (this is back in elementary school mind you) and so that's how it was

Claustrophobia, and also the fear of being social with people in real life. Being in a play or any sort just makes my anxiety raise through the roofs, and it just make me want to pass out, or leave the area.

I have food neophobia. Before last year I didn't even know what I had was given an actual term. Basically I have a limited diet due to a fear of new foods. I hated going out to dinner with family because they would always poke fun at me, which made it even worse for me. I'm slowly trying to try new foods and get other people to understand what my fear is. I'm not a picky eater, I'm not a vegetarian, and by no means am I VEGAN. I hate being put into those categories without even getting a chance to explain. It really pisses me off sometimes.

I have the fear of failure and being rejected by others/not fitting in. I get severely sick before a big exam because I stress out over it.

I forgot the name of it, but it's the fear of birds. Upsetting for me since my family owns a bird.
luxsword Featured By Owner Oct 8, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I've searched for the name of it but can't find one but I'm afraid of driving which stems from the fear of crowds. Terrified of crowded places!

Emtomophobia and Arachnophobia. I pass out if I come near bugs. Also germophobia.
I also happen to suffer from OCD, panic disorder, and paranoia. The germophobia is linked to the OCD.
DarkLingg666 Featured By Owner Oct 2, 2014
A fear of needles. It wasn't that pleasant to get my wisdom teeth removed, it caused more pain than it probably should have. Ever since, I panick when needles get close to me.
And I can't stand blood sometimes.
Stupid combination, while being a blood donor, lol. But when I have enough distraction and can look away from things when they insert the needle in a vein, I mostly can stand it.

Hemophobia. Well, I'm not sure if it's hemophobia or not. I had an accident when I was younger. I fell on a vacuum cleaner(one of them weird standup ones) and tore my whole left knee open. There was blood everywhere, and I've only recently started to get over it. Still, whenever I have to go to the quack to get blood drawn, I start shaking like a leaf. Don't get me wrong. I have no problem watching things on tv or playing bloody video games, nor do I have a problem with bandaging wounds. It's just, when blood is being forced out of my body via a foreign entity, I freeze. Maybe it changed over the years. That's possible too, right?

I have ichthyophobia, a fear of fish.  0_o  I can barely watch them on TV and usually can't go into aquariums at all.  I'm also claustrophobic.

Ever since I watched "Marble Hornet" I get REALLY nervous when I'm alone in my house - particularly if the lights are off - particularly if I'm moving around with the lights off (i.e., turned off the hall light before going to my dark room to go to bed, etc, as opposed to just going to sleep) - It's getting a little better with time but man I got really freaked out for a while.

Barophopia. A fear of falling and closely related to acrophobia, the fear of heights.

There's no real reason for it, I just have this irrational fear that i'm going to fall from places like bridges or tall buildings.
Goldeneyes2 Featured By Owner Sep 27, 2014
I don't have a height phobia - I'm fine if I'm up high and there's a railing of some sort.  But if there's no railing I feel nervous to go to the edge just in case I slip or something.  And I HATE the feeling of falling - can't go on roller coasters or anything like that.
Zaphodiop Featured By Owner Sep 3, 2014  Professional Filmographer
Acrophobia (fear of heights) is my biggest one. I used to love heights. However, I fell out of a tree when I was younger and even though I don't remember the incident at all, getting onto something high petrifies me.

I am also utterly terrified of mountain lions...their screams freak me out.

My three main phobias are of spiders, injections and zombies.
Spiders because of their weird, alien appearance along with their fangs, which can be poisonous.
Injections because of the pain? mainly with the horrid feeling of metal penetrating your skin, and the fact they have the potentiality in taking away a life than saving one.
Zombies because the idea of being eaten alive and the fact you would turn into one of them if bitten.

Entomophobia, specifically mosquitos ( ). I'm allergic to their "bite" and they look terrifying D: 
It's getting better but there was a time I couldn't even grab something to kill them, I just petrified :P
Mesmer-sama Featured By Owner Aug 26, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
I'm afraid of dogs (thisis my "inner panic", when a dog approaches and I have little or no place to move and avoid contact, I kinda freeze) and butterflies/moths (this shit gaves me full panic, I cant even touch a painting of those...).
