    Megalohydrothalassophobia I believe it's called - fear of large objects in water. Or submechanophobia, the fear of submerged man-made objects.

    So basically whales and submarines and the underside of boats and those really large deep tanks/diving pools. I braved google images to bring you this picture (though feel all dizzy and tense from looking at the search results!)

    Thankfully these aren't things I have to deal with on a regular basis

    I have glossophobia - it's the fear of public speaking. If I have to stand up in front of people I go completely blank, can't see people's faces, sweat like a mofo and lose all my words. I asked not to have farewell speeches when I left my old job. I hate being the centre of attention, which may be one of the reasons I don't particularly want to get married.

    I am extremely phobic and can get very overwhelmed and panicky, but it's all pretty normal stuff:

    Heights
    Confined spaces
    Death
    Anything that flies at your face
    Spiders/insects
    BATS *vomit*
    Driving across bridges
    Home invasions
    Being caught in a terrorist attack
    Being alone forever
    Swimming in the ocean
    DS choking or drowning

    Spiders and snakes- it's a fear but not a phobia iykwim. Same with heights- it's not the height itself anyway, it's actually the fear or falling. When I'm up high u always imagine the building falling or me being pushed off the edge and it's the fall that terrifies me.

    I actually get the feeling there is something else but I can't remember what!

    Me too! I went to a seminar at uni today (with only ~20 people) and started hyperventilating at the end and was shaking for about 20 minutes after because I merely thought about raising my hand to ask a question.

    It didn't occur to me to list it as a phobia since I know it's nothing that can actually kill or hurt me. Unlike whales which will just swallow you whole and keep on swimming

    Snakes - kinda. I can deal with one if I have too. ( ). But I can cope with seeing a picture or video of one.
    Apparently my mumma bear fears can out rule the phobia.

    Rats. I can't even walk past them in cages at pet shops. They absolutely terrify me.

    I remembered. Sand. I hate sandpits. I detest beaches.
    I hate the texture. I hate hearing it. I hate the look of it. I hate sand.

    I deal with it if I have to. But just no.

    I have the normal ones - heights (only started once I had children), snakes @ spiders.

    Other ones would be vomiting - if you be sick, I'll be sick with you then continue to be sick. My worst fear is gastro.
    Swallowing tablets - freaks me out where I think I'll choke..
    Last one would be a huge fear of people bringing up phelgm. I literally get the shakes, sweats and want to be sick.
