Emetophobia - I'm afraid of vomiting. Luckily it has relieved a LOT, around 1-1yrs ago it was so bad that it affected on my everyday life. I sat at home, felt sick because I was unsure and feared so much that I'd start to feel sick. I could panic if I felt sick/thought I could perhaps vomit. (I think I'd still panic if I had to vomit).

I am really afraid of death, people around me dieing, needles (but not scared of tattoos OR piercings?!), confined places, and *this is really weird I know!!* but when people excel to fast in a car. And what I mean by that, is like when you're at a stop light and it turns green and you start going again. I don't KNOW WHY I have that phobia, but I do.

I think it is because when I was younger I always had these weird dreams of dieing in a bad car crash?

I HATE spiders.

Haha, the creepy crawlys don't really bother me too much as long as they don't bite me. I am afraid of clowns and heights. I don't particularly care for needles but they don't really scare me anymore.

My biggest fear is being stabbed or cut. It is a very real danger where I work and it just scares the crap out of me. I think I would rather be shot than stabbed.

fears, phobias, scares
