I don't like being touched behind my ears
I don't like being touched by people with gloves on (doctors hate me)
I get nervous thinking about demons and aliens because I think they will focus on me and find me if I think about them
If my hand/foot hangs off the bed at night I get scared something will get me
When I'm alone I won't walk past closed doors because I think someone will open it and hit me


What's crazier is that I am an extremely sensible and reasonable person. However I'm extremely open-minded and imaginative so I guess all that leads to irrational fears. I may have a wee touch of paranoia though.

Off to take my crazy-pills... teehee
Im all of the bold! Your fine lol.. I creeped myself out reading this and had to go look out my house to make sure no one was there:0

Me too on these things plus a few others that are similar so you are not the only 'nut job' out there.
Nothing very sensible about me though but I am imaginative I should probably be banned from watching anything even vaguely spooky or episodes of Criminal Minds - oh and the Dr Who one with the creepy statues
Take care & keep smiling!!!!

When I was in high school, a friend's sister was at home alone one night and decided to watch "The Ghost and the Darkness" (if you've never seen it, it's about crazy man-killer lions in Africa - still creeps the crap out of me every time I see it). Towards the end, she looks up & out their basement window... their Newfie dog was staring in at her. Since it was dark out and the dog was black, all she could see was eyes. Apparently her scream brought the neighbours running over!

It used to rule my life where I would not go anywhere where maybe I would get sick/see a sick person, etc. I got therapy for it and it's much better and the anxiety only really pops up when vomiting is imminent (or perceived to be by my crazy brain)... I vaguely remember waking up from gallbladder surgery last Nov very nauseous and saying melodramatically "it must never happen! I would rather die than throw up" haha... I didn't.

I am also afraid of balloons, metal silverware, fish, toasters (although I love toast, I have to put the bread in and push down and run out of the room), scary movies, and bats. There is more, a lot of them are sensory issues more than actual fears, though :)

More irrational, is the new 35W bridge in Minneapolis. I know it is now the safest bridge in Minnesota, and I'm not afraid of it collapsing like the old one, but they put all these weird structures on it that light up different colors, etc and it is just creepy to me. I will go any route NOT to drive over it, and luckily I don't go the city very often at all.
If you ever meet anyone with .
CVS (chronic vomiting syndrome) RUN! I have it and it sucks, I vomit for no reason...well kinda no reason It can happen from not eating, not sleeping, eating too early in the morning, stress, nerves.
For those who are curious this is all cause by an excess of stomach acid, every once in a while the body says "hey we really ought to get rid of this stuff" and....yeah, I'd die without soda crackers and other absorbent foods

Heights, only when I feel out of control. Rock climbing for instance I feel like my belayer is controlling me and nit myself as I KNOW I am.

Clowns. Not so much anymore but when was a kid there was some in our annual parade so I calmly moved away from the curb as he said hello to my friends, then he came to me, I backed further off the sidewalk and he kept coming at me. Yes clearly advancing on the terrified child is a GREAT idea! I about kicked him in the face.
And peopling big costumes, like mascot costumes ever since my friend made a seemingly harmless joke about them being able to hide weapons under their costumes
