    Acrophobia - fear of heights.

    Serisously, I get uncomfortable when I'm just 3 feet off the ground, standing on a chair/desk. It scares the shit out of me.

    Agoraphobia - Fear of Embarrasment or losing control.
    That's my worst fear. It petrifies me to the point where I get panic attacks sometimes...it's the worst feeling. I know I haven't been diagnosed but I know that is my worst fear, I'm terrified by it. So, so much that it's really not healthy...

    Agoraphobia - Fear of open spaces
    I am the opposite of a Claustrophobic person. It is odd, because I love open fields, but I am absolutely terrified to be an open space. I do believe it is because of a reoccurring nightmare that I had as a child.

    Athazagoraphobia - Fear of being ignored/forgotten
    Oddly, sometimes I feel ignored and/or forgotten, but I am terrified of being forgotten. When I feel that it has happened, I kind of freak out, a lot. I don't know. It is strange.

    Autophobia - Fear of being alone
    I have had this fear for a long time. I have somewhat gotten over it, but it creeps back up on me at the worst times. But, a few years ago, I couldn't be anywhere by myself or I would flip. I would have to know that someone was in the house with me.

    Virginitiphobia- Fear of rape.
    In my past, I was raped, numerous times. And now, it is one of my biggest fears.

    Agoraphobia- Which the actual definition is way too long, and hard to describe. I've suffered from this as long as I can remember. Whether it be avoiding dances, going to slumber parties, ordering at resteraunts, or even ordering pizza for a friend. I just honestly can't do it, I freak.

    Methyphobia- Which is fear of alchohol. My parents are big drinkers, so I guess I blame them. I can't stand the smell of it, and I cant stand touching it. If I accidentally bump into the coffee table, and the beer spills, I absolutely refuse to go near it.

    Potamophobia- Which if fear of rivers, or lakes, or such. I'm terrified I'll drown. With pools, I'm okay, but I've been so close to losing my life before in a lake, I can barely stand being near any source of murky water.

    Gephydrophobia- Which is fear of crossing bridges. I'm just afraid they'll fall in, especially when it's over water. It's like, I can't stand looking, but I feel like if I look away from below, it'll happen. And, because of that, I'm literally through fits when it comes to crossing a bridge. Especially on foot.

    And, on a long note, which I'm not much on actually admitting this one; Ecclesiophobia, which is fear of churches. I'm not afraid of them, on the outside I think alot of them are beautiful. I believe in God, I used to go to church when I was really little, I own a bible. Just something about it really freaks me out, bad enough to where in a church, alot of the time I end up bawling, and leaving as soon as I can, never to come back.

    I think that's it...

    Arachnophobia - fear of spiders.
    Acrophobia - fear of heights.
    Cancerophobia - fear of cancer.

    I also have a fear of going to the doctor's and going to the hospital. I don't think it's a phobia, because I will go and be alright, but when I'm there I'm super anxious and my heart begins to race. The smell, the environment, everything just freaks me out. Does anyone know what that's about?

    Last but not least, I have a fear of chainsaws. The sound of them makes me cringe and cover my ears, and the sight of them makes me freak out. There's no actual phobia for it, though.

    Enissophobia ... fear of criticism. I don't take criticism well at all. Not by pretentiousness, I just panic and cry.

    I'm very much a scaredy-cat in general, though. Tongue

    Aichmophobia
    Fear of Needles
    It's just the thought that Holay something is in my arm. And it's not the pain (Although that's no plus side to it.) And its not just needles either its pins too. I cringe when I them on camera too.

    Coulrophobia
    Fear of Clowns

    Most people don't think this fear is nessacary, but whatever. I was nine... it was Christmas, my mom had gotten me Stephen King's It on dvd, and no one wanted to watch it with me. So yeah, kind of self explainatory from there.

    Cleisiophobia
    Fear of being locked in an enclosed place
    I can't stand elevators, or when I'm sitting in my closet (yes i sit in my closet, it eases my mind) and I get locked in there because the handles broken, I freak out screaming, banging on the wall for help. But mostly I hate being locked in elevators because like there's like what six elevator related deaths a year or something? I think i heard that somewhere, but I can't remember where.
