Red face Do you have a phobia?

Okay, so I almost started with "Do you have a weird phobia?" but then I might be the only one posting.

The needles thread got me started on this. So, do you have one? two? many, many?

I'll see if I can think of all of mine....

1. needles going in my skin for any reason, mainly taking blood out.
2. Over loading a vehicle. Pressure. Pressure. It drives me nuts. Literally. When I watch a big person or group of people get into a car and it heaves under the weight, a cringe. Definitely wouldn't ride in it. What if it tips over? What if the axle or whatever breaks? I know it's totally irrational, but that's why it's a phobia. This one is my worst because there have been times I had no choice but to ride in a vehicle I didn't feel safe in... in one case, for 8 hours. eeek)
3. Having my blood pressure taken.
4. Used to have a weird fear of cats after having a freaky one. (yes, he was freaky and mean. I have no idea why I loved him at first but he was the first out of hundreds of animals I actually became afraid of. I had nightmares about that cat for years until my dear hub MADE me get another cat and now I think I'm free of that phobia... I do love my dear kitties Bobbie Jo & Betty Jo. But if I see a cat like him I have, at least, a nightmare that night)
5. Having my wrists or the middle of my feet touched. Weird but I don't.

Now that y'all know how weird I am... most people never know any of this. Just my parents and my hubby. I can get through most of them hiding my distress, and I think it's getting better with time.

I'm afraid of mascots and clowns (Disney to me is like a horror show)

1.)The grudge. One night my boyfriend called me from an unknown number and made the whatever "OGHHHH" Grudge noise and then my closet popped open and I literally thought I was about to die. -__- Every since then that movie just creeps me out. I can't watch it, I can't look at the cover. I just can't.
2.) Furbies. I hate them. Their creepy. and I freaking hate them.
3.)Knives. I'm not scared of them when I'm using them I just get scared around other people with knives. It's like an instant panic and I just have to walk away cause I literally get anxiety over it. o.o
Those are really my only "Phobias"...

Spiders, bees, most insects, sharks, and I also slightly cringe when walking through automatic doors at stores.

I have a medical phobia in general. Needles, invasive medical procedures, swallowing pills are all TERRIFYING.

Most irrational fear? Accidentally swallowing dental equipment. What if one of those picks they use to clean your teeth went down your throat? I'm curling into the fetal position just thinking about it.

This just came up in my journal, but daddy long legs (harvestmen). I can't handle them. No other bug bothers me, even spiders are fine. I just can't be near daddy long legs, touch anything they touched, and I cringe at the thought of having one ever touch me. It's a completely irrational fear as well, they literally can do no harm to people.

Of course they're all over the place here. Or at least it seems that way.

And heights too but that one isn't serious.
