Strange Phobias

Do you or someone you know have a strange or unique phobia?

I will start. I have a fear of all yellow cheeses and cockroaches. YIKES!!

    I HATE hate hate hate Daddy Long Legs flies. I think their actual name is crane lies, daddy long legs is a weird british name for them because of their horrible long legs with a tiny long body. As soon as i see one i can't breathe n my heart beats so fast it's awful!!

    I hate the way they flit against walls as if they can't see them eergghhhh

    I thought it was irriational until i remembered that as a kid my older sister used to catch them in her hands, shake them up and throw them in my face, and they'd flutter against my face in the most disgusting way!!!

    p.s. tried to google a picture to show you what insect i meant but couldn't bring myself to look at the images!

    Mustard. Seriously.

    Me too I've been known to puke and/or cry if I come in contact with it

    Also ducks/geese/swans/chickens near my feet.

    Corrugated cardboard , the feel of it makes my skin crawl. If I have to touch it/carry a box and I don't have gloves on, then I have to be able to wash my hands every couple of minutes.

    I don't know if its strange but...bugs - all of them. Yup - from lady bugs and butterflies to spiders and beetles. I hate them all...and they all scare the absolute crap out of me....like scare me to tears scared. Its become rather embarrassing as I've gotten older...but I don't know what the cure is;) I've already prayed for all bugs to cease to exist...and it hasn't quite worked yet. Yup - I hate bugs :(

    Needles. I genuinely have a violent, instinctual reaction when I am confronted by them.

    I honestly can't stand to think there might be a day I may need to go to hospital and they come at me with a needle. I'll tear them apart before they put it in my arm!

    I have a lot, but my most irrational are chickens (live, not on my plate), basements, and things with repeating hole patterns like sponges, speakers, honeycomb, etc.

    Strange: vomit, to see, hear or smell it. I don't know how I survived my sons being babies and spitting up.

    Not so strange but a huuuuge phobia for me: spiders, I am too afraid of them to kill them.
  • I have a genuine, horrible phobia of mayonaise and salad cream.

    I have a fear of not being able to take a shower and feel clean. I refuse to go more than 24 hours without a shower and I stockpile all shower products. I probably have five bottles of shampoo just waiting to be used.

    And roaches. Those things freak me out. I woke up with a small one on my head not too long ago. Talk about scarred for life...

    With you on that one. Hate the way they blunder about and fly in your face, euugh. I can't settle if there's one in the room. Also large spiders, anything over about an inch diameter... doesn't matter whether they're big all over or the sort with little round bodies and long spindly legs - can't bear them
  • Vomiting. I cry and literally beg God to kill me before I puke. I would rather have diarrhea until my butt explodes than throw up once!

    I encountered one.

    I work at a bar. A couple grabbed some seats and asked for a couple beers. They then decided to order some appetizers...Queso dip & Quesadillas. "Sounds good" i said, as as I turned to put in the order, the lady grabbed my arm and said under her breat, " PLEASE bring the sour cream out on a seperate plate so it doesnt touch the other food"...umm OK. me - "do you have a food allergy?" Lady - "No, My husband has a sour cream phobia"

    WHAT...

    Food comes out as requested but, OH NO!!! the sour cream bumped into the salsa cup so they needed all new dipping sauces....

    cripes.

    Toilets .... in by themselves, or dealing with them (cleaning or reaching into) and even more so if they are LOUD flushers (commercial jet engine flushers or autoflushers are the WORST!)

    I honestly am so disturbed by them, I haven't been able to force myself to replace EITHER old semi-broken one in my trailer cause I can NOT REACH INTO THE TANKS! Argh.....

    To a lesser degree - WATER BUGS (giant cockroaches - like 2-3" long!). And vomiting - I start crying and freaking out, comes from childhood truma when my mother punished us for being sick.

    Some are the normal...Spiders (though I am unreasonablly freaked out by them i have been told. lol) sharks snakes...

    I don't know if this is an actual PHOBIA...but... uncooked chicken. Seriously gives me the heebie jeebies. I wash my hands about 10 times after having to touch it..and wipe everything down with disinfectant spray overzelouzly. That and raw egg getting on my hands. Beef, shellfish etc... do not get that reaction. I don't know why I am so strange...about raw poultry!
