    This. A million times. Any time I go for a doctor's appointment, I get so nervous that they have to take my blood pressure multiple times because my racing heart is throwing off the results. The fact that one time I fainted at the doctor's doesn't help me get over my fear of it! I also have a fear of blood in general, so getting my blood drawn is a nightmare.

    As for the dentist, I have a definite fear of going even though I've never had a particularly bad experience there.

    I can't stand to get my blood drawn or have a needle poked in me. Plus the atmosphere of the doctor's office is just uncomfortable. I don't like a stranger to be paying attention to me and touching me.

    As for the dentist, my mouth gets so sore with them trying to put all those tools inside at once. My mouth can only stay open so wide for so long! >.<

    Let's see...

    Dolls,some statues (looking at you weeping angels! *shudders*), closed spaces, ironically enough open spaces (crowded market places), insects, spiders, needles, elevators to some extent (it doesn't stop me from using them, I just fear a little that I'll get stuck or something), oh and sometimes heights yet I'm ok in an aeroplane? :confused: Also, darkness can be terrifying. And I hate when you have sickly-sweet music playing over a otherwise morbid scene.

    In fact, overly sickly sweet music/things in general really. Just think of Rainbow Dash's dream, like that really. They're just not...right.

    Also, those smilers from Doctor who. In fact, I blame most of my fears from that one show alone really.

    Oh, and those statues in Museums that have the sensors in so whenever you walk past them they start playing a recording, in fact whenever I go to Museums I tend to run past them so I don't trigger them. The sensors in their eyes make their eyes glow red.

    Overly realistic mannequins can be creepy too, but that ties into the whole statues and dolls thing. I tend to be alright with them though, it's just when I'm in a small room and there is a bunch of realistic looking mannequins in a circle. I guess that ties into the whole weeping angels thing.

    Those dolls that look like realistic toddlers are the worst, and the ones with buttons for eyes...ugh...nope,nope,nope,definitely nope. And also the ones with the eyelids that you can close and open. Especially if said dolls are in a crowd of said dolls. I'm actually ok with barbie dolls, it's just the ones that look like babies/toddlers. I'm not afraid of babies or toddlers though, it's just those types of dolls make me think of Chucky. (Child's play).

    Weird thing is, I'm ok with ventriloquist dolls BUT only if they're being used by someone, if they're just lying on their own they freak me out. It's weird.

    Oh, and sometimes when I'm in the shower I feel like there's an axe murder stood behind me or something. But I'm just paranoid about these things. And there's that feeling that something is going to crawl up from the drain and grab you. Yeah....

    Any bug that stings, and spiders, and any bug that can sting and fly, and flying cockroaches

    Also have a fear of becoming addicted to things like pain medication. I refuse to take prescription pain pills even after surgery because I'm terrified I'll become addicted

    Bugs and public speaking are all that I can think of right now, there probably more that I just can't remember right now.

    I hate water towers. They totally freak me out and I don't know why. It might have something to do with What's Eating Gilbert Grape but I dunno. They freak my mind and I don't like them, nope.

    I used to be terrified of needles-my mother would tell the story of me kicking a male nurse in his private parts and taking off running down the hall as a kid when they tried to draw my blood-but I literally forced myself to get over it. I just donated blood today. :slight_smile:

    I'd say I'm still a pretty big hypochondriac though. So I guess a phobia of illness?

    Ooh, I forgot my claustrophobia, fear of public speaking, and fear of wasps! Okay, now I think I'm done.

    Heights (only on open places like hills though, I'm not scared of skyscrapers or cable cars).

    Getting lost. I have great spacial awareness and I rock at reading maps, but I still worry about getting lost.

    I was biphobic toward Jackson because he went from being bisexual to gay then back to bisexual. At the moment I felt lied to. I think I was more mad at the fact that Jackson couldn't decide what his sexuality was.

    I'm a bit scared of getting dirty, I dislike being alone in the dark but not darkness itself and I am very scared of heights.
