Just for fun. I know there are a lot of phobias out there and that it is serious business to those that suffer from them. I am in no way trying to make fun of that or downplay the severity of the phobias. I just thought it would be interesting to see what fears, phobias and aversions, if any, existed on these forums.
I do not have any phobias per say, but I definitely have an aversion to snakes. I will avoid them at all costs. I try to stay as far away from them as possible but I do not suffer any adverse reactions if I am forced to interact with them. I just prefer not to.
My wife does not care for clowns. She is not scared or fearful of them, but does not care for them. I think she is more annoyed by them than anything. It makes the summer parade season a real treat. She also doesn't like spiders. She insists that all spiders must be squished, by me not her. Again, she just does not like them. She is not frozen in fear scared of them or anything.
I used to have a co-worker that literally would scream like a little girl and his heart would race if he saw a spider. For him, it didn't even have to be a real spider. He hated Halloween due to all the plastic spiders floating around. Even the sight of a fake plastic spider would get him worked up.
Does anyone else have any fears, phobias or aversions that you are willing to share with the forum?
