    i have to admit, although its probably a BAD idea, that i am terrified of spider WEBS!! not spiders but their abodes!! especially the big ones that stretch across doorways. :shock:

    if there is one near me, i run squealing for cover :oops:
    anyone have any random weird phobias like that?

    ps i dont know if this thread has been done already so sorry moderators if its a repeat :lol:

    i used to be squeamish at the sight of blood, but i grew out of that, and now, it's just finger nails. Just thinking about them or talking about them or the skin around them or, particularly, cuticles. And now my fingers have gone all weak on the keyboard because i'm thinking about them.

    I must be weird as I can't think of anything that freaks me out or makes me feel ill...........................yet!! :shock:

    Just thought, that horrible disgusting habit people (usually men) have of sniffing/snorting the contents of their noses and then swallowing it!! :evil:

    Not so much a phobia but a pet hate!!!!!!!!

    Moths, butterflies, birds in close proximity, bats (had a really nasty run-in with a bat recently) oh and the thought of someone biting a mohair jumper.

    Wasps really give me the willys :shock: I don't mind bees - somehow I feel safe when a bee is flying around me, but when a wasp approaches, its time to get out of there sharpish :wow

    Actually talking of biting things - what about when you bite a piece of tin foil? AAAAARRRRRRGGGGGHHHHHH!!!! :evil: :evil:
