Every human being on this earth have fears of their lives, it may be supernatural, emotional, things, situational nor other living creatures and more. It denotes the chilling of the feet and arms, sweating, pale color of the lips and skin, can't focus, stomach upset, worried, panicky and sometimes led to unconciousness if the drive is too much. This phenomena is what we called, Phobia, a great fear in life. Most of the Phobias are simple fears but excessive and intensive phobias should treated already since it denotes mental disorder. Specialists said that Phobias can be treated but it calls for drastic measures since you will overcome your fears. It takes time, alot of mind set and determination to be successful of conquering your fears. Too much fear is not good because our body produces chemical like having stress that would lead to serious condition aside from having mental problem. One of the greatest fear, I can't over come with is flying cockcroach. I should say, I got this phobia due to personal experience when I was a kid. I'm not affraid of venomous snakes, scorpions, spiders, large wild animals but with this little creature would surely make me run. Its funny but its the truth but now somehow I can manage not to over react if I see one. Guys do you have phobias? How did you get it?

There are certain things that i'm scared of but none of them can be categorized under phobia. I'm afraid of ghosts but i'm not scared of being alone in the house. I have heard some strange noises before but i just went to bed and didn't think about it much. I'm afraid of losing the people i love but i guess that's just normal. So basically i don't have any phobias. And i hope i won't acquire any in the future.

me? i don't believe in Ghosts, Spirits, and Souls.... but i am afraid to be alone in the house... maybe that is what they called adrenaline in Phobia.... another example: when you see your friend, at least worthy of having graduate in her school, you like and enjoy because somehow your friend is already graduated by there is something flows in your eyes, its tears.... tears??? therefore, it's a tears of joy....

I hate spiders. I just don't like their legs for some reason and how they like to crawl on you for no reason. That happened to me more than once so it only made me hate them more. Nowadays whenever I see a spider I show no mercy and squash it asap. It might not be a huge phobia but I get pretty nervous when I see a spider near me. Still can't get over it...

just follow what i did... i used to buy insect crawling sprayer in 600 ml... the brand name is Baygon.... it's waterbased.... when ever i see spider or suspicious maybe it's hidden in that area, i used to spray and then my prediction is right.... suddenly a big so very fat hairy spiders just to come out of the hidden hole and panic to hell.... when i see that spider is about adrenaline running out of nowhere now i am rolling on the floor laughing out loud, it lessen my worries.....

i think if your personal Talents is self discovered... therefore... Phobia's in different types too is also self discovered... and the only way to intercept those phobias is to face it gradually in order to become immune... i have a phobia in the following: 1. Spiders 2. Heights 3. Depths 4. Bang!!!!! sounds 5. Dark 6. Alone 7. Approaching Boss as the owner of the company but i really like to face and never afraid of sparring matches of martial arts...

Mine is snakes of all sizes whether their venomous or not. I'm not sure how I had gotten the phobia. I think they look evil and scary.

I know exactly how you feel with the roaches. I live in the country and we have them outside. They have actually flew into me a couple times. I've also had bees and wasps run into me too. It's like they know I'm terrified of being stung so they test me. But I am extremely terrified of bees and wasps and hornets, anything that hurts when it stings. It started when I was about 10 and I was mowing my grass. I ran over a hornet nest and was attacked by a horde of them. Like I could see a dark cloud as I ran away. I ran two blocks away from my house into a gas station. I was stung well over 15 times on my ankles, and I was swollen like crazy. So that is my main phobia. I am also terrified of rollercosters cuz my dad made me ride them when I was little, about 8 I guess.

i have phobia with anything that crawls, mainly snake or worm. you can surely kill me by using those things. even watching it on tv or seeing it crawl in front of me or even talking about it.. i can imagine me running away.. i remember the last i saw a snake, i never set foot to that place for a week. i'm really afraid of them. one other thing im afraid of but not as much as i am with snakes, is height. i can go up to 100th floor of a building but dont let me look down. i cant imagine myself crashing into pieces in case i slipped or missed it.

I have great fear of snakes and the likes of them. Every time I would see snakes on Tv screens, pages of magazine or newspaper, my hands and feet get cold and I have difficulty breathing. Ir will last for some minutes and as if I will pass out. I don;t how i get this phobia but until now I have it and can't get over it.

I'm very afraid of snakes. I'm just as afraid of a grass snake as I would be a rattler. I have no idea why, I just don't like them.

many types of a phobia experienced by someone. sometimes towards something we think is very unlikely to fear, like a balloon a phobia, phobias several kinds of fruits, phobia about words that are repeated, specific a phobia of clothes ... there's nothing weird Misc
