    I can't say they're phobias, though they do cause me general ugh from the keeping a wide berth, to the crying, sometimes yelling and running like a spazz, and feeling sick levels, depending on the situation.

    Having blood taken from my elbow - I'd say this is the worst of the three.
    Heights - Conversely I also get the urge to jump when I look over edges .

    Can I add intimacy phobia? >_>

    I couldn't find my phobia on the list, but I suppose staurophobia is the closest one. I have a phobia of religious iconography. I can't be alone in a church or in a room with a lot of religious statuary or crucifixes. I had a lot of nightmares (mostly in childhood, but every now and then to this day) about seeing religious visions or being present when religious statues or crucifixes become animated.

    I actually used to have a fear of when I was younger due to a scary movie that my brother was watching. This really religious person wearing a cross was murdered by poisonous snakes. D: My parents got me a cross necklace for my birthday shortly after (they didn't see the movie). I was very nervous whenever I wore it, but I've gotten better.

    Teehee. Mine too. I'm always tempted to test it out and make it stick (if only I could stand the taste of peanut butter).

    I don't have phobias. I think. I dislike some things, though, but not so much that it would paralyze me.

    Arachnophobia - spiders.
    Automysophobia - Dirty, being dirty or personal filth.
    Claustrophobia - being closed in.
    Dystychiphobia - accidents.
    Catagelophobia or Katagelophobia - being ridiculed.
    Lygophobia - being in a dark place.
    Panthophobia - suffering and disease.
    Pharmacophobia - medicine, taking or drugs.
    Social Phobia - being evaluated negatively in social situations.
    Soteriophobia - dependence on others.

    Ergophobia or Ponophobia - work
    Phobophobia - phobias

    lamely enough, botanophobia (fear of plants) and chronophobia (in my case fear of clocks)

    yeah... I know, pretty bad

    at least my Coulrophobia (fear of clowns) is a sensible one (there's no fear of mimes on there )

    Ants- Myrmecophobia
    If there are just a few, then there's nothing to worry about. In numbers, though, they freak me out.

    Bolsheviks- Bolshephobia
    Just for fun.

    Beautiful women- Caligynephobia
    I get nervous around beautiful women.

    Cancer- Cancerophobia, Carcinophobia
    Carcinogens make me cringe.

    Creepy, crawly things- Herpetophobia
    They're so... creepy... and crawly. *shudders*

    Decisions: making decisions- Decidophobia
    I have trouble making even simple decisions, like what I want to eat.

    Single: staying single- Anuptaphobia
    I guess being single is okay for now, but the thought of being single forever is horrifying.

    Skin lesions - Dermatophobia
    Only on myself, really. This is a result of my previous experience with acne.

    Speaking in public- Glossophobia
    My brain goes into panic mode.

    Tyrants- Tyrannophobia

    Venereal disease or prostitutes- Cypridophobia, Cypriphobia, Cyprianophobia, or Cyprinophobia

    Granted, none of these qualify as actual phobias; they're just things that make me feel substantially uncomfortable.

    I might, however, have a genuine generalized social phobia.

    Some old fears:

    Atychiphobia (Failure) - Oh, good times. Long story. Very likely the longest fear I've had.

    Philophobia (Being loved) - I used to have an intense fear of being liked. If someone confessed they romantically admired me, I'd think about settling on a new island far, far away. This probably stemmed from my parent's marital troubles affecting me as a young teen, and it slightly scarred me because I was afraid I'd make an endless number of stupid choices if I allowed myself to feel deeply. That and I didn't want to risk being manipulated, hurt and loosing my self-identity by my emotional attachments. Once I found someone I could completely trust, this fear became a habit of the past -- nevertheless, it was a long, difficult path. Before then, I only 'liked' the guys whom I could keep my emotional walls with, and stayed away from the ones who I felt would take them down.

    Being nurtured - A combination of a fear of dependence on other people (steriophobia), personal attachment and loosing control. And just plain awkwardness: "What should I do?!?" I'm used to being the giver that I feel weird and vulnerable when I switch positions.

    Loosing self-control - Super long story. Second to my fear of failure. Everything could be tied into this.

    Anything new- Neophobia.
    Changes, making; moving- Tropophobia or Metathesiophobia.
    Crowded public places like markets- Agoraphobia.

    Default Phobias

    Do you have one?

    I'm more repulsed than afraid, but . . .

    Trypophobia: The unofficial word adopted by Urban Dictionary to describe persons with an irrational fear of clusters of holes, pods, circles, cracks and/or other asymmetrical shapes which results in an all-over itchy feeling and general uneasiness.



    I get chills just thinking about it. My general impulse is to claw away at the cluster of holes in question until the surface is flat and even.

    Here's a video.
