« on: January 31, 2015, 11:06:34 pm »
What phobias do you have? I have coloraphobia ( fear of clowns) and claustrophobia ( fear of small spaces).

I don't have any phobias per say, but there are things that I'm afraid of, like certain critters. I'm not talking about your normal ants and flies, but unusual-looking things.

I am terrified of travelling in planes and riding in elevators (I'm afraid that either of them will crash.)

My neuroses are way too numerous to name, but just a few are: isolophobia (being alone), claustrophobia/agoraphobia (confined/crowded spaces), and I have a completely unreasonable need to know exactly where my kids and husband are at all times and when they will be home to the minute, and if they are even just a few mins. late, I start panicking and am positive something horrible has happened to them. To be fair, it's actually not that unreasonable a belief with my accident-prone husband, lol. And I am getting better. It now takes 15 mins for me to panic (it used to 3  :-[). (I am aware that I have issues, but firmly believe acknowledging them is half the battle in managing them)

I'm claustrophobic. Clowns, germs, insects, nothing else bothers me. Just small spaces!!

I am a bit claustraphobic and I am not crazy about elevators or heights. But that doesn't stop me from living my life. What is comes down to everyone is afraid of something what's important is how you deal or not deal with your fear(s) :heart: :peace: :wave:
Be grateful for what you have and you will receive more than you ever expected

If you believe it you can achieve it.

Sort of small spaces, but it is really more about being trapped. If I am voluntarily in a small space I am not bothered.

I am claustrophobia, there are also parts of me that can't stand crowded places.

Good morning,
I only have one phobia.  Disambiguation which is the fear of falling.  I have had  this phobia for my entire life.
