Emetophobia - I'm afraid of vomiting. Luckily it has relieved a LOT, around 1½-1yrs 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).

"On hyviä vuosia, kauniita muistoja, mutta kuitenkaan, en saata unohtaa,
Että koskaan en ole yksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Vaikka myrsky hetkeksi tyyntyykin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Ja pian taas uusin hönkäyksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Hei tuu mun luo, pieneksi hetkeksi. Puhutaan, varjoni, valkoiseksi enkeliksi."

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 youre at a stop light and it turns green and you start going again. I DONT 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?

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.
