I am such a scardy cat. When I was growing up I was given the nickname "Safety Sandy" & I have stayed true to that name ever since. I have so many phobias it's not even funny. Here are just a few...
1) Agoraphobia: The fear of situations in which escape is difficult. Mine isn't so much large crowds but more being trapped under or in something and not being able to get out. I have serious panic attacks just THINKING about situations like that.
2) Ailurophobia: The fear of cats. Y'all I am serious.. I am sooooo scared of cats. The other night I was babysitting and had no idea the family had a cat until I put the four kids to bed and was sitting on the couch. I look up and not only is there a cat staring at me.. but the cat appeared to be VERY pregnant. Cue instant panic.
3) Dentophobia: The fear of the dentist. I hate to admit it, but I can't even remember the last time I went to the dentist, probably early college. I know I need to go.. and I really am going to go soon. But the thought of people in my mouth touching my teeth just makes me freak out!!
4) Traumatophobia: The fear of injury. This goes back to the whole "Safety Sandy" thing. I pretty much avoid all situations that could cause injury. Except that I was a cheerleader and played multiple other sports my entire life, but while playing I pretty much played it as safe as possible! I think this whole thing really stems from the fact that my cousin accidentally hit me with an aluminum bat at the Braves game when we were 8. They have these games that you can play and I was leaned up against the fence watching him play and he accidentally let go of the bat and it hit me through the fence. I had to be rushed to the emergency room via ambulance. I had plastic surgery and couldn't see out of my eye for a long time--very scary. I still have random moments where I will flash back to the situation and literally have a panic attack over it.
I know some of those are really silly, but these are definitely the things I am most afraid of in life.
Are you afraid of any of these things too??
