I completely understand your phobia. I hate paper cuts. They are sooooo painful. I swear, cutting myself in my kitchen with a knife does not hurt as bad as a paper cut. But I don't have a phobia of them. I don't really have any severe phobias. There are things in life that scare me a bit, but not to the phobia state.

I am afraid of going to sleep at night. I don't know why. It isnt the dark that does it. I just want to be awake. I guess I'm probably just afraid that something will happen while I'm sleeping. I am also afraid of being alone. The thought of having no one scares me. I also don't like spiders. They just creep me out.

I am afraid of heights. I went on a ferris wheel with my niece and they stopped it with us on the top. I took all of my willpower not to try to jump off. I'm not too bad if I just look straight out and not down. I just get a weird feeling and I get real jumpy. My brother used to tell me that I need to go to places where I can confront my fear, but it is never easy. I was hoping I would grow out of it but I never did.
