out of curiousity,I wondered what are some of the common everyday phobia's people encounter in here? I have a fear of heights.i hate being on the very top part of building and then people persuade me to come and look down.it makes me very nervous and i start to get sick,fearing that i may fall off of the building.Some friends adviced me to do a bungee jumping to make my fear dissapear.it's a big NO NO from me.i can wet my pants if i'm doing it.. Anyway,just wondered who else suffers from any phobias of any type..

I suffer from Mottephobia. I have a deathly fear of moths. I live my life in fear of them attacking me and my loved ones. The way they flutter around, acting all frail and innocent - they are KILLERS! Do not be fooled! The have little tiny fangs and microscopic claws that can do alot of damage. I also suffer from hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia, otherwise known as fear of big words.

I am also afraid of heights. I am okay as long as I am behind glass and the wall is at least chest high and we are no higher than 9 floors. It is funny as when I was younger I used to sleep on my balcony on the 19th floor and it didn't bother me. My life long phobia is hypodermic needles. I can't even watch people get a shot on TV. I know it doesn't hurt but that is my rational mind, my irrational mind makes me run far and fast from needles!
