Fear: The fear of flying birds.
I can deal with birds when they are stationary, or swimming like ducks, but i cannot deal with birds that fly. sparrows, magpies and pigeons to name a few. even the sound of their wings flapping, to use a cliche, sends chills up my spine. i'm even scared by their shadows...

Name: Allie
Age: 15
Fear: Needles.
Phobia: Aichmophobia (Fear of needles).

It is time that i told the world (or at least those that read this) that my one true fear is needles. Three years ago, i had one and i fainted. this year, i've had two, and gone completely psychotic at the prospect. We had tetnus at school, and i made a fool of myself over something that i'm well aware is completely irrational. I got so worked up that i had to be taken aside afterwards, for half an hour, just so that i would calm down, and not repeat the fainting episode. It makes my skin crawl just thinking about it. I've had panic attacks and the like, all over a tiny piece of metal... i just don't understand it.

[ mood | accomplished ]

I took a TUMS capsule yesterday. I was scared but I did. I know this sounds small since some people take aspirin or other medicines. But I can't take children's cold syrup most of the time I'm so afraid of medicine. I think this is a step in the right direction.

Theophobia [14 Jul 2005|08:39pm]

[ mood | rejected ]

Name: Emily
Age: 17
Phobia: Theophobia

I have an extreme feel of religion, rituals and general association. It is most ofte triggered by words. For example: Jesus, God, Lord, Anubis, Epona, Great Spirit, ect. It has caused me a great deal of distress as religious comfort is out of the question.

This is my most recent problem with my phobia:
Sacred FireCollapse )

I have tried every community I can find looking for help with my problem. No one has helped. I've gotten some questions about it but no real help. It has always been regarded by my family as a phase or a silly little thing. However, this has shredded the concept of a spiritual life or any religious peace. Counselors often ignore it and my father only fully understood after I began shaking violently resulting from close contact with my sister's cross necklace. I am often called strange becuase of this and am asked irrelevant questions. I know I sound whiney but I am just very tired of being scared and very, very frustrated.

Can anyone lend a hand? If you culd I would so gladly appreciate it. I will help anyone in any way I can and wish everyone the best.

My name: James
My Phobias: Thantophobia (death), Apiphobia (bees)

My fear of bees is incredibly irrational and incredibly strong. For example, last summer, I was watering some plants. A bee landed on my hand. I had a panic attack. I was out there for about an hour, walking in circles with my head in my hands. And the thing is, I've never even been stung by a bee. Anyway, your phobia for the day:

Hippopotomonstrosisquippedaliaphobia - The fear of long words. Ironic, huh?

Hello there! [02 Jan 2005|08:53pm]

[ mood | good ]

Hi, I'm Lisa, I'm 26 and I have an extreme phobia of caterpillars.

(I feel like I'm in an AA meeting. LOL)

It's really bad! Simply seeing a picture of one makes me want to run. If I see one (picture or in real life), talk about them, someone else talks about them...blah blah I start to itch and sweat and get really nervous. Like I am right now. I've tried to find the name of this phobia and have come up with nothing. I've found fear of insects...but that's so broad. Hope you can help!

(Oh, if I see one in person, I'll run for at least a quarter of a mile just to get away from it.)
