Hi everyone, I think everybody is scared of something. For me it would have to be a fear of heights. What about you? What are you scared of, if anything? What is your biggest phobia? cheers,

I am claustrophobic. I don't like to be in small enclosed places. Confined, too many people, too much stuff Etc... My mother was a very messy pack rat and I have become a minimalist as an adult. When I am in a very messy cluttered place or around too many people, elevators, small rooms etc I have a hard time breathing and get the shakes. I keep a pretty spacey house so I am usually fine but it does suck that the kids and Howard know this and when we are in a situation that is problematic they look concerned for me knowing it is a challenge. I am all powerful mommy after all. Grrr LOL Vicki

I am a bit claustrophic too, although in my case, the problem is confined tonarrow "towers" where one has to climb up lots of steps. It's weird, & I didn't always have this issue. I just hate the feeling of climbing up steps, particularly thoise with gaps in them, in a narrow space.

I wasn't always like this either but it is actually increasing as I get older. I always used to get a bit of a yuck feeling but not enough for people to notice. But now I can't hide it and people know. Vicki

Heights, spiders, sharks and swimming in water when you don't know what could be lurking beneath!

I have a fear of heights also, the dark, and a few other things but my biggest phobia is spiders - yuk, I don't even like typing the word. I freak when I see one or even if someone just mentions them. I was bitten by a poisous one a few years back, shouldn't be alive now actually, and that just made things worse.

I'm a little Claustrophobic that's why I find it hard to breathe when inside an enclosed space like if I'm inside a small elevator. I can't sleep if something is covering my face even a thin cloth cause I'm afraid I won't be able to breathe. I'm also afraid of reptiles.

I actually have three big ones. I could not narrow it down to one. Those three are bees, thunderstorms and the dark. I absolutely hate all of them. I am a big baby.

For me, the biggest phobia would be that of cockroaches. Since young,I have been very afraid of cockroaches,especially flying ones. They have this particularly yuckky distinct smell and I know whenever there's a cockroach around.

Well for me it's the Dentist, yes that's right the Dentist. It's been this way for years, a few years ago I found a dentist that would put me to sleep for anything, I went to him for years and was very happy, but he stoped taking my insurance so of course I stoped going. Well I now have found another one he wont put me to sleep plus I can't afford it anymore it cost alot. This Dentist is good, I have been to him twice and I have more work to be done but so far so good, he gives me some medican to relax me.

It would have to be spiders for me. I have always hated them. I am particularly scared of redbacks, huntsmen & wolf spiders. Many spiders in Australia are poisonous. I was bitten by a spider many years ago. It wasn't that bad. I just needed antibiotics.

I am afraid of snakes. I think it is called cenaurophobia.

Hey. I think my biggest phobia would be the thought of spiders and horrible snakes... We are so lucky in New Zealand, we dont have snakes here... The closest would be an eel lol...
