I think most of my fears seem quite normal when I think about it. I think the worse ones would be fear of failure and fear of getting blood drawn. However, the latter is very irrational and intense when triggered-I have fainted as a stress reaction over finger pricks and someone else's bad blood donation story.

Well I guess many of the phobias I have would be considered weird, but the two weirdest ones I can think of are my fear of home insulation, and one of my oldest fears, that of bananas. I also have a very intense fear of spiders, and some other fears that include dogs, mushrooms, sharp objects, germs, death, failure, change, etc. I guess I'm a rather messed up person, but oh well.
I forgot the name of it and was too nervous to google it because pictures will pop up. I don't like holes. Bee hives for example or when someone has really really bad acne to where there are tiny holes in their face. Its just weird..

I have eisoptrophobia. It is hard to do something as simply as shower without being terrified that something will come out of the mirror. razz

I, too, have trypophobia.

I also have a horrible, irrational fear of teeth, though I don't know what that's called. Especially, like... diseased teeth or broken, bloody teeth, but even if I think too much about normal, healthy teeth, I get sick. Teeth terrify me.

Odontophobia.
Hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia - fear of long words. No joke. I memorized how to spell it years ago

That isn't a real phobia.
Dogs.
Don't know why, but I've always been terrified of them. When I get invited to a party at someone's party, the first thing I ask them is if they have dogs. If the answer is yes, welp, that's a party I'm not going to.

So, a while back I was thinking about an interesting "fear" I have about drinking alcohol(long story) and I learned that there's actually a name for it. Dipsophobia.

I didn't really know what to make of it so I did some more research on it and found that people woth dipsophobia experience anxiety about addiction to alcohol and the effect this addiction can have on their body.


So, do you know of any officially sanctioned Latin worded fears about alcohol in regard to being afraid of drinking because you don't know what kind (like friendly, angry, sad, violent) of drunk you'd be? Because the lack of that knowledge for me is what makes alcohol go on my "never try" list.

Even if only one person is afraid of it, it's a real phobia.
