This is really common for people when it comes to dealing with "their" animals/children versus someone else's. I can deal with my pet's runny poop or vomit of half-consumed random objects, but a puking baby gets returned to momma. Ick.

I forgot... and I'm embarrased to admit it.. mirrors and toilets at night. I'm grand during the day, but since I was young I used to try and last the whole night without going into the bathroom. I'm still funny about it :(

I used to be fearless.... But now as I've gotten older and realized that I CAN DIE and so can others, I've become terrified of...

Floods-When we lived on the river we had a few surround/get in the house and I've never felt so helpless. Twice we had to be rescued by boat, every time I literally got sick to my stomach, and I can't even talk about how terrified and irrational I was about the horses. Now we live on top of a mountain!

Bleach- It makes me feel like I'm pouring cancer all over my body. I WILL NOT swim in a pool, drink tap water, use it in the house, and I rave like a mad woman when people use it. It was created for chemical warfare! Use Peroxide!

Injury to my horses- I'm becoming so paranoid about their health. I stress about it daily. My kid, not so much! IDK why, they are just so fragile, kid's bounce and heal... horses always seem to break.

Wasps of any kind-especially red wasps. I'm not sure if I'm technically allergic, but I react worse that most people. Last time I got stung I was laying on the front of our boat, and one hit me in the forehead and then fell down and stung me on my stomach. I had a reaction on my stomach that literally looked like half of a baseball. Over the next couple of days it started decaying like a spider bite. Gross.

Tornadoes- I have never seen one but I have nightmares about them all the time.

Barf-Just can't deal with it. The smell, the sound, yuck. Totally freaks me out.

Crowded places-Ever since 9/11 I haven't felt comfortable in crowded places. I hate going to movie theaters. It was only about 2 months ago that I was talking about this with co-workers and how nervous I felt in movie theaters. I also don't enjoy going to restaurants. Just looking around at everyone chewing food grosses me out. I guess that is not a fear though...just me being weird!

My biggest (and dumbest) fear is of drains, manholes, grates, and pretty much anything else in the ground that leads to a hole. I have an irrational fear of falling into and not being capable of getting out of one of these, and absolutely refuse to walk, drive, or ride over one or even near one. I'll go way out of my way to get around one.

JDI, the only monkeys who don't invoke disgust in me are golden lion marmosets. They're so tiny, golden and furry, that they really don't look too much like monkeys. Not that I want to take one home as a pet, just that I think they're rather attractive little animals.

Wow, so many interesting and diverse fears! Thanks for sharing, guys

One of the strangest I ever heard was my brother's mate, who was terrified of cheese. My brother and another mate accidentally sprinkled some parmesan near him when opening the fridge looking for food, and he ran screaming out of the house and all the way down the street.

Huntsmans (not the human kind, but the spiders).
In general I don't care about spiders. Little ones, big ones, deadly ones, big and deadly ones, just don't care. But as soon as you put me in a room with a placid unlikely to bite you huntsmen, I turn into a full on quivvering, sobbing, hyperventalating mess in the corner of the room.

I know it sounds stupid, and it's not like it interferes that much with my daily life, but giant bugs. Like impossibly giant bugs. Considering my favourite genres of entertainment (books, tv, movies) are fantasy and sci-fi, there are a lot of giant bugs. I LOVE Doctor Who but I literally crawled under a blanket screeching when there was an episode with a race of human-sized intelligent flies.

Also water - not so much water itself, but the THINGS that might be living in the water. I had a fish bite my toe (not badly, I don't even have a scar) when I was little so I think that's where that came from!
