Simple question really

I don't have any that i know of.. I don't mind heights, Spiders don't scare me and neither do sponges  SmileD)

Although, i used to be frightened of spiders, heights and even aeroplanes when i was younger  Smile

How about all of you?

Cheers

Dan

I am afraid of heights but when I make sure that there is no way I can fall down, I relax a bit. I am also afraid of wasps (those fat red wasps) because I am allergic (sp?) to them and it won't be pleasant if they bite me. Nothing else.

I'm afraid of needles, closed in spaces, and burglars. There's been a lot of incidents in my neighborhood lately, so I'm kinda freaked out.

Well, I'm not really *afraid* of crowds, but I don't like them much. People always blocking me, inadvertant as it may be, delaying my progress. It sort of gets on my nerves. But I love crowds at events though... It makes concerts, games, etc. even more fun.

I'm terrified of needles. In fact, I sometimes pass out when seeing an injection on TV.
I know what caused it, but that does not help.

I'm also not especially fond of crowds. I'm a bit paranoid, so I have trouble being at ease with people all around when there is no clear route to an exit.
Strangely, this does not bother me at all in aircraft or busses (though I dislike trains).
Because of this, I rarely go to concerts or pubs and have not set foot in a cinema in almost a decade.

Spiders. I don't mind those tarantula-type big spiders but I hate those ones with thin long legs like the daddy long legs.


I used to think the brain is the most fascinating part of my body. But, hey, who is telling me that?

Flying.

Seriously, I used to be terrified of flying but I've pretty much gotten over it by reading and learning as much about aviation as possible.

I'm not very afraid of anything involving medicine or medical procedures, although if you try to take blood from my fingertip with one of those "snap lancet" plastic thingies, I will make you take the lancet out and just poke my finger with it. Better yet I'll poke my own finger, thank you.

Let's see... I volunteer at an animal shelter but I will not clean puppy cages. The smell of dog feces makes me sick. It's not really a phobia.

Hmm... I don't particularly like metal grid bridge surfaces, but that doesn't keep me from driving over them...

OK, maybe I don't have any phobias any more.

Ants and any other bug. Sometimes, for no reason, I will hallucinate and think that there are ants on me, and then I freak out.

Argh i hate it when that happens too.

Whats worse (with ants) was i was cycling, and going down a grassy hill to a raised grid which i jumped over, but when i landed my front wheel landed first and buckled, and i fell off.

I was quite badly hurt so i just lay there, i went to take my helmet off when i felt this tickling on my forehead. I quickly whipped my helmet to find it crawling with ANTS!

I had landed on an ants nest and they were crawling all over me

It was horrible, i was feeling them for days.

Its amazing how many people here used to be afraid of flying, i remember going on a holiday to Portugal and i used to cry every night at the fear of flying, not because i thought it was going to crash but just the experience. But when it came to the day i was fine (thankyou Air2000!) and waited for the flight home with anticipation!

Cheers

I was terrified of flying, up until 5 years ago. But when you company sends you on a few dozen trips a year, you kind of get over it. Now I'm as comfortable as riding in a car.

I once sat down on an ant hill. And the person next to me was like "There are ants there." And then I realized these ants were crawling all over my legs! AHH!
