Ophidiophobia... I'm really afraid of snakes eversince. I cannot even see their pictures on the encyclopedia and I cannot even wear a sandal made of snake skin. That's how I'm scared of snakes.

I have a fear of heights. I have vertigo and I cannot look down even from a short distance. I can walk up a stairs and walk down stairs as long as I know that the next step is easy to go down, but if I am on a step stool and look down, or if I am on a ladder, I have to hold onto something. I have another fear that is of laying down with my feet higher and my head lower. I have no idea what it is called.

I have a strange fear of bridges (acrophobia i think it is called) its strange because it normall affects people on high bridges but it affects me on low bridges that are over water, i dont know why it does because the bridges are very low (normally a couple of foot above the water)so the fall wouldn't hurt me and i'm a very good swimmer and have no fear of the water, i spend most summers in the water on jetski's ect so i really cant see the problem
