    Thats not to bad as long as I take my pills :lol:
     
  12. I have three phobias. churches - They send me into really bad anxiety attacks as soon as I walk through the door so going to weddings and funerals is a big problem for me.

    Ice - I'm so scared of falling over on it that I just simply wont go outside if the ground is icy.

    Hills & slopes. I'm terrified of going down them...Even subway slopes. I've been known to go down them on my backside before to avoid walking down them...much to everyones amusement.:laugh::laugh:

    I dont have any that I know of. Phobias are a very different thing then being scared of something.
    Im logically scared of heights, but illogically scared of house spiders and crowds. (and mannequins give me the total heebie jeebies coz I half expect them to come to life and grab me!!:eek:).

    I've just read your other thread Sue, re the ash tray, and I'd say that the bloke in question probably now has a phobia about strange women emptying their ash-trays in his car!!!! :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

    I don't like needles very much..not afraid of them it's more a dread type feeling. I wouldn't say i have any phobias although i'm terrified of falling over....especially on ice and thanks to last winter i did fall a few times, didn't get hurt just a few bruises but my OH's brother fell and split his head!!!

    My OH, his dad, his sister and 3 brothers are terrified of spiders, bees and wasps. My dad is petrified of moths(when he was little he had a dream that a moth ate his head....he's 47 this year and literally screams when he see's them), both my grans are terrified of snakes(one is scared of all reptiles), my mum used to have a phobia of spiders but doesn't now.

    Makes me feel brave :D
