Okay, I have this huge irrational fear of...

Daddy Long Legs (Crane flies)

I hate them and I freak out when I see them.

What are your irrational fears?

With pics, but not if it will scare other people, like zombies or gore...

Uergh. I can't even think about it - it really hurts my brain :p.
I'm also very scared of strong winds, when high up. I don't know why.. I love heights most of the time :D.

For a "draw your irrational fears" thread elsewhere I already illustrated it:

http://files.noctifer.net/wetroad.gif

When a road is even a little wet, I get really cautious with my bicycle because one time as a kid I slipped and fell :(
Becayse I never had any serious injuries from it or any other bicycle fall, and it's not that likely I'll fall in the first place, I'd call it quite irrational.

No. I won't laugh. I think that that's actually a really rational fear. There's no way to be certain any journey is safe.

Unless ships was a typo, and you freak out everytime you need the lav... :D

Having to go to the dentist.
None ever hurt me or did have to do painful repairs, but each time I have to go, my heart rate fastens, the palm of my hands get moist and my mouth goes dry.
Mind you, coming to think of it, it's maybe not so irrational - it's that feeling of not being in control.

Really? I can't say that I have ever heard of a fear like that. I'm reminded of a quote that might be appropriate:

"Fear is the mind killer. I will face my fear and let it pass through me. And only I will remain."

Ten points for whoever guesses where that is from.

Ages ago I came across a theory that our irrational fears where things that had happened to us in another life...So maybe Net had a bad experience with a ship. Deep water could indicate drowning. Fear of your neck being touched being hung or strangled.

Some things like fears of spiders etc are perfectly rational though. :)

Claustrofobic, but not that bad ... :(

Maybe I should have put that one to be my main fear, first thing that came up was waps. But hell yeh I went to Disney Land Paris, when I was 13 and I went on the haunted mansion ride. I started to panic like crazy, and nearly screamed :( I also nearly cried :( It was horrible, luckly this happened right at the start so some nice... lovely man *stares into space*. Oh yeh and he led me along with my mum outside through a fire exit, as she was next to me in one of the chairs on the ride.
But apparently because they had to delay the ride a bit, the speakers had said something like "Sorry... we are currently having a spooky... techinical issue..." Also I had gone on it when I was 8/9 in Florida, but that time awareness was low, so I went on the ride and came out crying :(

I know a friend who's agriphobic (not sure on spelling) but it's where your afraid of too much space

Let's sum up my issue with fears - Lack of CONFIDENCE!

I have four major fears:

4. Premature burial (and pretty much any other form of being trapped in a small space with no way out) (strangely, one of my favorite scenes in one of my favorite movies features this)
3. Getting pregnant
2. The burglar alarm in my house (I don't know about others, just that the one in my house is terrifying)
1. Earthworms (lots of you guys are braver than me, posting pics/drawing of your phobias. I can't even do that. I have this "How to Draw Manga: Occult and Horror" book, one part's got drawings of worms and bugs and other critters; I drew a cape and fangs on the worm, called it Wormpire, just so that I'd be able to look at that page. It still didn't help.)

can I take a guess at this and say Kill Bill Vol. 2?? :p


I'm the same. I completely freak out if I have the feeling of physical restraint (be that in a zipped up sleeping bag, in a small space, or under a bed *shudders*)

I also have an irational fear of being tickled, or anything of the sort. I flip out and just attack whatever tickled me, so be warned!

Being in cramped spaces with too many people, the GameStop over here is the perfect example. Good gosh, it's a HUGE city, but the store is soooo tiny. So whenever I'm there, it makes me really nervous.

Spiders. (Don't hate them, just afraid) Freaky, how I adore snakes with a passion, yet I'm afraid of these little critters. Except for tarantulas, I think they're adorable.

Any other bugs

I know it's lame and totally unoriginal, but I have a very real fear of flying.

I feel 'fairground ride' safe on a plane... does that make sense?

I feel safe, but something could go wrong.

OK, flying is the supposed to be the safest form of transport, but if something goes wrong you're doomed.

I dunno... I guess it's because I have no control.

This is going to sound odd but I have a fear of windows. I have had so many nightmares of voices talking to me through my window at night and people breaking though it and killing me or loved ones. And last year someone threw a giant brick through my window and luckily I just got up to go use the restroom, I was sitting right where the brick went through and it would have hit me in the side of my head, unfortunantly they threw one through my grandpa's window too and hit him in the back.:( Luckily he is okay.

If I have a dream that involves them in pretty much any way, I have to curl up into a fetal position and lie awake for half-an-hour trying to get back to sleep.

I used to have a really irrational fear of balloons, couldn't go anywhere near them when I was little coz I would be so scared of them bursting in my face... now they just make me quite nervous, lol! :o

Something have hated my whole life though and I have never got over is most things made of rubber... such as rubber bands,; I just absolutely HATE the feel of them! I have to give out the post in work, and whever I get handed the letters, they always have rubber bands wrapped round them, and I always find myself biting my lip and trying to get the bands off as soon as possible...
Yeah having an irrational fear of rubber is never a good thing, esp. when you're in a serious relationship... :o

Oh and I hate clowns and spiders, but then they are quite regular phobias...

I hate the thought of being shot. It bugs the crap out of me because theres no reason for it...but it really does scare me.

It's not even like "oh, I wouldn't like to be shot." It's like.."see if I was shot, I'd hate to be shot anywhere that wouldn't kill me."

Crowded places. I hate being in shopping malls, for example, it freaks me out if there's people everywhere. And when watching a movie in theatres or listening to a lecture at uni I need to sit somewhere in the last few rows, at the edge. If I can't make a quick exit everytime I want I'm nervous all the time until I can leave the room.

And I really hate wasps and hornets!! I run away screaming if there's one flying around suddenly when I'm outside, especially if I'm eating something sweet that's attracting them :o

Fear of your neck being touched being hung or strangled.

I guess I was hung or strangled in my previous life then, lol. I hate hate hate other people touching my neck and I have no idea why. It just feels...gross for some reason.

Other than that I don't really have any irrational fears. Or maybe I just can't think of any at the moment.

Sometimes when I'm sick I get nightmares where things are growing. Then when I wake up some things looks like they are growing. I once had to go to the bathroom and sit there in like 2 hours because I was too afraid to go back to my bedroom.

And this was only a few weeks ago. <.<

Elevators - Another bad experience. I've been stuck in two elevators before.
Spiders - Because they're creepy and they've bitten me.
Global Pandemic - I have Resident Evil and I Am Legend to thank for this one.
Things that are dirty - Germaphobia, yes it exists.
Having someone look over my shoulder - This creeps me out!

Those are the major things. I also have Generalized Anxiety Disorder which makes me anxious about almost everything.:wve:

I was just coming out of a temple when I saw it. I only saw it's dark body and it's chickeny feet.
I later found out that it was actually The Guardian of the Talion and it was an eagle instead of a chicken.
But it will always be known as chicken Legs to me :pi:

Hospitals and spiders.

I also used to be deathly afraid of tornadoes, but I'm fascinated by them now. You know how sometimes fears become an obsession, and you want to try and understand them and know everything about whatever it is that scares you so you can move past it? That's what happened to me with tornadoes/severe weather.

I'm also afraid of being buried alive/suffocating.
