    Default What are your biggest silly/completely irrational fears?

    Absolutely cannot stand pulling hair out of plug holes or out of my vacuum cleaner (my long hair snags on the vacuum cleaner head and I periodically have to pull out clumps of hair). Doing both of those makes me dry retch. Blerghhhhh

    This is me too . It's horrible especially when there's gastro going around. I've just received a book on curing your emetephobia so I'll let you know how I go with it.

    Yep. Another one with a fear of birds also. They are like flying rats to me. *shudder*

    Heights. Hate them. I don't mind being in a tall building because it's enclosed but I couldn't climb the Eiffel Tower, I hate chairlifts .

    Rides at the show , unless they aren't very scarey.

    Enclosed things. So waterslides that are enclosed , small places ...uck. The subway in London....gives me a panic attack just thinking about it.

    Flying. I hate it. Used to be ok but after one panic attack on a flight to Bali I had panic attacks on 3 out of my flights to Europe. Never again. I hate everything about it. The heights. Being enclosed. If something goes wrong, there is nothing you can do. Just no

    *shudders* me too. My college dorm showers were the worst, most of the residents were Asian so had long black hair. Which was lovely when it was still on their heads, not so much when it was clogging the shower drain.

    My other one is 'banana strings', you know after you peel a banana and then sometimes you have to peel these little stringy bits off it too? Except some people don't, they just eat them lol I don't even know why they're so bad.

    Heights. Magpies. Emus. Being struck by lightning. Going over bridges. Being caught in a terrorist attack. Dying alone. Mushrooms.

    I'd probably literally have 100 more. I am a very phobic person.
