First off. Phobias are no laughing matter if you got some. I have listed couple of odd ones. Some of my readers added some other things they are afraid of. So feel free to add yours too.

I think the first step to overcomecome your phobias is to admit them and the be able to talk about. Maybe this thread helps you a little. Seeing that other people being afraid of odd things might help too.

quite a varied list. If I got to pick which phobia I have (yes, it’s a silly notion), it’d be Lutraphobia. I don’t think I’ve seen a single otter in person. Perhaps I do have Lutraphobia and I just don’t know it.

i have a fear of raw meat. i live by myself and it limits my cooking abilities! on a good day i can handle it very quickly (straight from the package to the pot, pan, or whatever) as long as i have on rubber gloves or plastic bags over my hands.
and to go to a restaurant and order a steak ‘well done’ with ‘no pink what-so-ever’ doesn’t work very often. i always have to send it back or its burnt to a crisp!

#35 jessica :

i have a HUGE fear of snails. and slugs too.
i don’t know exactly why, but it has a lot to do with their “slimy-ness.”
snails more than anything. i can’t be near one, or i get major anxiety attacks and freak out.
it also has to do with my fear of insects/animals with SHELLS. for example, crabs, lobsters, turtles, snails, cockroaches.

what would you call a fear of shells?
(not the kind you find in the sand.)

I have pernoctation, which is a fear of pigeons.
I hate them so much, that whenever I see them walking infront of me, cutting across my path, I freak out and run the opposite direction.
When I was younger, I was attacked by many pigeons and I have the scars to prove it.

Has there been a diagnosis of a phobia of a meat slicer? My friend is traumatized by them.

i also have a fear of veins they scare me terribly i find them so gross and sickening ahh ugh i get the chills thinking about them.
my last fear is getting shots into your veins. in the inside of your elbow scares me the most. it scares me terribly i will NEVER let anyone do that to me but on the other hand its kinda good cause i will never inject drugs into myself lol

#54 Mugugey :

I hate slugs too! I love snails though, I think its ‘cos slugs are all exposed and the slimyness can touch you (if that makes sense?).
Also I hate other peoples ‘stuff’ like clothes or shoes or especially things like ‘bathroom stuff'(toothbrushes, hairbrushes, girly products etc).
And wet dishcloths, they are disgusting!
And anything to do with injuring hands, like kids getting their fingers caught in car doors, or nails falling off but that fear is legitimate ‘cos I caught my thumb between a concrete wall I was knocking down and the sledgehammer I was using to knock it down. My nail had to be removed and my thumb got infected and now(7years later) it still doesnt bend properly!

Umm and last thing: fast cars or people messing about in cars(driving silly, swerving for no reason, etc). Again I feel this is legitimate as I was in a car accident a few years back and still have flashbacks and nightmares.

God I’m a right bundle of neuroses aren’t I?!?!

OMG! I am not the only one afriad of Jello! It warms my heart that other people afraid of jello were kind enough to share there thoughts! Jello terrifies me so! I will freak TOTALLY FREAK if you even give me the recipe for jello! It horrifies me that the monster even exists! I have no real reason for being afraid of it, but man, is it scary! I run fevers when people touch me with it, and I can hardly breathe when when I hear it spoken. Anyone else afraid of jello? Email me and we can talk!

#56 Maury :

I’m afraid of balloons. Seriously, no one believes me and they chase me with them and sometimes it gets so bad I cry. Usually I’ll just get tense and cover my ears when I’m around them. I think it’s mostly the anticipation of them popping. I’m not afraid of deflated ones, and if I hold the balloons it’s ok because I know they won’t pop. Weird…and fear of balloons is not on any of the phobia list sites. 🙁

#58 Marie Sue :

yep yep…..I have a fear of me or anybody else touching the inside of my wrists or the inside of my elbows. I’m trembling now just typing about it!! My head on the inside is feeling like I am hearing fingernails being scratched on a blackboard…another thing that makes me cringe and want to run!

other phobias–
my ex-husband kidnapping my daughter
my ex-husband killing me and my daughter and my parents
but I do have good reasons for the last two…although my fear can get out of control and become overwhelming so easily
okay..moving along
fear of never being married again
big birds like cockatoos and cockateels
loud sudden noises
crowds-at times
grocery stores at times I feel the roof WILL fall in on me
the color red used alot in a store –I will have a panic attack and have to leave
fear of if I do ever get married again…he will be violently abusive to my daughter and myself

yes..i am in counseling 🙂 yes ..i do take medication 🙂
yes..i am trying so hard to get him put in jail for violently sexually assaulting my daughter for over 5 years on visitation… the wheels of justice are broken..but yes God WILL punish him

ok…that’s all

xxxooo 🙂 to all of you with phobias i am praying for all of you

Yeah, I’m afraid of needles and pulses. I mean, I’m afraid of getting my pulse taken, not them in general. But yeah… my dad is always making fun of me and trying to take my pulse cuz he has to “practice” for school, but he’s just trying to freak me out. But, just wondering, does anyone know the name for the phobia of pulses or blood pressure being taken, cuz I can’t find it anywhere. I think it’s Sphygmophobia, but that’s only cuz I looked up the word for pulse in Greek and added phobia, so I’m not completely sure. Thanks!

#70 Tina :

I have a fear of buildings falling down while I’m in them. The fear normally starts while I’m in the passanger seat of a car and for some reason I start thinking that there is too much weight on the floor in my apartment or any building and the floor will collapse and I start freaking out or the building I work in will collapse while I’m in it. Once I get inside I’m totally fine and the phobia goes away. Once there were way too many people in a club and all I could think about was that it’s too much weight and the floor will collapse right under us. I hate it and I wish I knew what it was called…if there even is a name for it.

Fear of clowns: The King of All Weird phobias

Does the name Pennywise tell you something? Maybe the chills, maybe some fear, maybe some hatred, or maybe nothing. Imagine that you are alone in your house, it’s getting dark, you can’t see really well. The door bell rings, you go downstairs very slowly, you open the door and… Pow! A big clown face greets you with an annoying/devilish laughter GUFFAW, GUFFAW, GUFFAW!!!Fear of clowns, together with fear of driving and fear of success, is one of the most known weird phobias and fears.

Fear of clowns, or its scientific name coulrophobia, is an extreme fear towards these hated creatures. It isn’t true what they say: clowns are not funny, cute or good-spirited creatures. Well, maybe they are, depending on who is or who is not afraid of clowns. There has always been ambivalence, since people have managed to label clowns into two types. The good, funny one with fear of driving and the evil, sinister one, that kidnaps people and puts them in the trunk of the car to eat them later. Fear of clowns could be toward both of them. However, weird phobias and fears tend to address the evil clown.

Fear of clowns is more common with children; say ages 2 to 7, nonetheless, it can also be found among teenagers and some adults. These weird phobias and fears are caused by two main reasons:

1) Children grow fear of clowns after experiencing a dramatic situation with a clown in person. It may have been at a neighbor’s party, or a cruel prank the child’s father made. This fear is usually carried to the child’s adult life. A similar situation happen with fear of driving, where a traumatic situation makes the brain to retain that episode.

2) After seeing a malefic portrayal of a clown in the movies, television or media in general.

A Social Phobia

There has been a tendency in popular culture to turn the clown persona upside down, providing it with traits of horror. Fear of clowns as part of the weird phobias and fears have been feeding of human terror since the 70’s. Weary Willie the clown created one of the first cases of multiple personality in the body of the Kelly’s dynasty, father and son. On decade later a whole lot of movies started to give a bigger stardom to these Machiavellian characters. Movies like ‘It’ and ‘Killer Klowns From Outer Space’ really created a culture of fear among youngsters. With other generations, evil clown costumes are very popular in Halloween celebrations, town festivals and parties all over.

All these weird phobias and fears, including fear of driving and fear of dentists are easy to treat. Medication and therapy are valuable options, but sometimes psychological assistance is not even necessary. These weird phobias make me think: There has to be something scary about a bunch of people coming out of a tiny car. That might even cause me a new fear of driving.

I think all phobias are just plain stupid. Ya I understand that people fear things but PEOPLE we only have 1 life to live so you might as well get over it and chillax. Now lets go meet the pope, hang with some clowns, eat some jello and finish it off with intentionally putting peanut butter on the roof of our mouths and go have some fun. lmao

And yes Hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia is a really messed up name for a fear of long words. lol

I’m terrified of snails and slugs. I start to freak out if I’m anywhere near them, and on time I found one at the bottom of my stairs and almost fainted. Terrible.

People always think that it’s really weird that I’m afraid of a “harmless mollusk.” It might be harmless, but it still makes me cry when someone chases me with one. XD

Balloons freak me out too. I’m always anticipating them to pop, so if there’s a kid squeezing the crap out of a balloon, I’ll just leave the premises.

I’m really odd! I have a fear of stepping on slugs not off slugs, I stepped on one about a year ago and I completly freaked out. The other day when it was raining I was on a feild with my dog and I had to inspect every inch of where I was going to step before I stepped, terrified of stepping on a slug, My worst fears came about tonight when I stepped barefoot onto a slug, I was heaving and almost crying, I got in the shower right away washing my foot with shower gel, about six times, and then scrubbing it with a shower lily with a seperate shower gel, I refused to use the same lily on my body, because I thought it had slug germs on it. I then got out of the shower and got the bacterial stuff and rubbed it all over my toes and feet and then I moisturised it and then sprayed it with perfume.

I also have a fear of thunder and lightning which is called astrophobia

I’m *not* afraid of normal things, though, like spiders, snakes, or sharks. I think I’m broken.

I’m a magazine journalist and i write for all the womens magazines in the uk.
I’m looking for a story about someone (preferably a UK resident) who has an unusual phobia that severely affects their life. I need a female angle so it must either be a lady with a phobia or a guy whose phobia affects his relationship with his wife/girlfriend.
These are well paid features and depending on how unique the story it could fetch anything from £300+ (often achieving between £600 and £1,000). The more unusual the story and the more it affects your life, the better chance there is of achieving top fees.
The magazine feature will be written in the 1st person (your perspective), giving the opportunity for you to tell it in your own words.
If you are interested and want to know more please email me at
I look forward to hearing from you

fear of blushing in public
fear of very high adrenaline – fighting (physical, and confrontations)
im scared of trains although if I need to get somewhere ill go on one =D just watching them pass and the power of them scares me..

…I have a horrible fear of metal, heavy metal, and screamo music. Seriously. I can’t listen to it. I’ll freak out. I’ll hyperventilate. I’ll scream. Anything to make the music stop. It scares me so much and I have no idea why.

#147 Amanda :

I just want to point out that it’s not a phobia unless it is causing major psychological distress to be around or reminded of a certain thing and you do everything it takes to avoid being near or reminded of the thing that is causing that fear.

It is not a phobia if you are grossed out by something, hate something, or even are just afraid of something. Like… I’m afraid of heights, falling, the dark, spiders and bees, but they’re not psychologically distressing, and I can tolerate them. With a phobia, I wouldn’t be able to do that.

for those people whot think phobias are weird and stupid? why bother coming on this site? :S now they’re the weird ones. get something better to do with your time!
and i’m glad i’m not the only one with a fear of buttons, i’ve had it since an incident when i was like 5, it doesn’t bother me and i don’t feel like i HAVE to get over it. proud of who i am and thats part something that makes me who i am. i don’t see why loads of other people bother wasting there time on finding these things amusing and picking on them like i was..
if i don’t care, why do they!? :S

I’m afraid of women. I’m a big guy and I could beat them, but I was raised up right. The problem is, I feel that women will abuse me emotionally and physically if I were in a relationship with them. It probably explains why I’ve never had a girlfriend. Sometimes I wish I could beat up the bad ones!!! Man, why did my parents have to raise me right???

With that, I’m afraid to go to a psychiatrist, especially female ones, to talk to them about it. With male psychiatrists, I’d feel embarrassed to tell them this. With female docs, I’d feel they would try to make me feel vulnerable and then attack me emotionally. I’m just completely scared out of my wits when I try to get myself to date/hang out with a girl. Having a hearing loss certainly doesn’t help (doesn’t improve my self-esteem).

Phobias: fear of women, fear of (female) psychiatrists (or fear of female medical professionals (MDs/nurses)).

Can maybe somebody help me (without being an idiot aka a “meanie”)?

Grapes give me this weird feeling. I cannot eat them or see them at all or else i’ll start crying and shaking and my teeth get some kind of anxiety feeling. Well the reason why i decided to stop and think about it and try and do something about it, is because i recently started working last week, and my job Imports fruit from Chile, and the main thing they work with are Grapes, yes to my luck. My boss sat a bag of grapes on tuesday and it was so embarrassing because i almost flipped and i started shaking and my co-worker knew about this, so she told him, “i think u should move those grapes from there”. Anyway, Can some one please tell me if you know what this is? and why is it that i cant eat or see grapes.

Oh my gosh, I can’t believe I’m not the only one that’s terrified of snails and slugs! I cannot go near one and if I see someone picking a snail/slug up, I immediately run away because I’m scared they might chase me with it.

Once I played an animal game and a picture of a snail popped up. I screamed and dropped the DS on the floor and ran out of my room.

Is that weird. S:

Lol fear of snails/slugs? My sister has it, but it used to be much more severe. I used to plant pictures of snails on her desktop background or in her choir folder to scare her. It worked, but now she’s less afraid of pictures of slugs/snails. They still scare her in real life, though. I take advantage of that phobia whenever I can. 🙂

For those of you who are molluscophobic, this video is for you.

I am so happy i am not the only one with a fear of pidgeons and knees, seriously. i have quite a few fears…

genuphobia- fear of knees- not knees but seeing bear knees having my knees touched, wearing jeans that rest oddly on my knees and lying on my stomach as it makes my knees feel wierd.
ichthyophobia- fear of fish- i hyperventalate and cry and breakdown.
ostraconophobia- fear of shell fish – same effect as fish.
scelerphobia- fear of bad men or burgalars.
and pernocation- fear of pidgeons.

i don’t mind that much as none of these effect my life too badly except scelerphobia.
also, the phobia of baloons is called globaphobia
and there is a phobia of alcohol and of being drunk but can’t remember the name.

Can i first clarify that a phobia is only a phobia if it is irrational , for example the fear of dying or drowning is not a phobia they are fears.

Soo yeah , i have a huge fear of masks or more specifically lack or loss of identity.

Another one is the air raid siren , makes me sick to the stomach if i hear it.

and lastly clowns , a rather common one , again it links to the identity thing.

My jaw clenches, I feel like I’m gonna puke, I start to sweat and get itchy, kinda jumpy. It’s awful, and I hate having it. I’m also afraid of overlapping lines… I’m not sure what that’s called, but my brother put staples into an eraser, like 8 vertical and 8 horizontal, so it make a bunch of little squares. I almost throw up whenever he shoves that in my face. *shivers*

I have a few odd fears:

Mascots (like at ball games or disney world, there was this parade going by and i hid behind a pole until it passed, I was 13, not like some little 4 year old which wouldnt b as bad)
Cameras (Having my photo taken or being captured on video, I HATE picture day and spend most of my vacations dodging the camera)
Seaweed (Im afraid itll wrap around my legs and drown me)
Jellyfish (I saw this thing on animal planet when i was 12 and hav been scared of them since)
And my biggest (and weirdest) fear is of the grinch (yes, I know hes not real and he gav xmas back in the end, blah, blah, blah, its normally not a problem but around xmas time he starts showing up everywhere and…..ya)

And my mom is afraid of bridges over water (shell actually stop the car and make me drive across the bridge and then tell me to stop the car so she can get back in the drivers seat), and I hav a friend whos afriad of germs (but only on doorhandles), and my 12 year old brother is afraid of thunder and showers (no problem w/ rain), he takes baths instead which I find disgusting (Its like sitting in your own dirt), and I see no point in taking them to get clean, just my opinion

I think thats it:)

#263 Emily :

Wow I find this interesting! I’m starting to realize what I’m afraid of are known phobias & I’m not alone (:

Fear of Trees ~ mostly I’m afraid of trees at night. I can’t stand driving through a forest roadway when it’s dark out. I remember driving home one time & my headlights were on the trees.  It was winter so the trees had no leaves. Looking at them made me feel anxious, I’m not sure why though.  I began crying & desperately wanted my dad to take the wheel. 

Fear of Loud Noises ~ Loud noises really frighten me.  I usually get sweaty palms, heart palpitations, and feeling faint. I stay in the school office whenever we have pep rallies in the gym because I panic. 

Fear of Tornadoes ~ I used to have this really bad. Even if there was just a tornado watch or severe thunderstorm I would hide in the basement for hours with all the stuffed animals I could carry. A few times I had to leave sleepovers because I was afraid a tornado would hit -_- I’m glad I have over come most of this!!

Fear of Choking ~ I don’t have this as much anymore. I used to be very afraid of choking on food. If I choked or nearly chocked on a certain food I would never eat it again!! I would avoid it at all costs!   I also fear people putting objects down my throat. When doctors use those Popsicle sticks or swabs in my throat  🙁 

Fear of Mirrors in the Dark ~ I’m afraid I will see something else in the mirror…But this is pretty mild lol

Ewwwww! All the slime came off the side of the slug and onto the side of my foot!!!! Double ewwwwwwwwwww!

I said until he was fully continent, I wouldn’t do his laundry. To this day he does his own and I disinfect the washer afterward!

#334 mischieftoo :

i am completely afraid of my heart beat. feeling it pounding against my chest, every waking moment of my life, just makes me feel so terrible. and it is almost always right non top of my mind. and also, i have a fear that, if i am in a building and not in the basement (if there is a basement. i LOVE buildings with only one floor because of this) the ni am afraid that the floor will break, and the whole building will collapse. i guess i have always lightly had this fear, but… in my house, there are 2 floors (basement, main floor), and the family room is on the main floor. we have two couches there, and recently my family got two new couches that are sitting around while we wait for my uncle to take the old couches, because he wanted them. so meanwhile, we have four couches in our family room. it COMPLETELY UNNERVES me. all the time, i feel like my house is going to collapse.
and also, i am completely paranoid at night (when it is dark), or i am alone in the house. i am afraid that there are murderers just waiting behind the corner with a knife. i know its ridiculous, but i can’t shake off the feeling. and so, i guess that is why i am afraid of the dark, too.

no one else had posted something about them being afraid of a multi-floored building falling apart, which i guess is a good thing, because that means that its probably so ridiculous that no one had ever thought of it before. well, i hope that’s the case.

good luck to you all, and reading this page makes me feel better.

I too cannot have too much furniture on my floors or even fill up the bathtub too full b/c I’m afraid it will fall through. When my husband and I bought our house I had to be reassured and reassured some more that the house was sturdy and will not cave-in. I DO NOT trust houses that were built in the early 1900’s. If I could live in a basement I would. You are not alone. Lately, I have been losing sleep over this. My husband thinks I’m nuts, but at the same time tries to be reassuring and supporting.

I’m afraid of being in water. (as in water in a pool or at the beach) I hate it when people come close to me, touch me, lift me or do anything to me while I’m in the water. I don’t like being in water past my waist and if I go any deeper and the water reaches my chest, I start panicking and breathing hard. It feels like a fat man sitting on my chest when I’m in chest-high waters.

I also am afraid of bugs…all kinds including butterflies, moths, caterpillars, roaches, beetles, ants…all the works.

the only way to get over a fear is to do the thing that scares you and you wont be scared of it anymore. trust me i know. i used to be afraid to leave my house and ddnt leave it for a year. whenever i tried i would have terrible panic attacks. but i just kept trying it little by little until it ddnt scare me anymore. it takes work but anyone can get over a fear no maatter how dibilitating it is.

I have an extreme fear of pigeons and frogs. I didn’t have either until a few years ago, and they began out of nowhere.

My mom says I used to love pigeons when I was a kid, always running after them in the city. Now, if one crosses my path, I turn around and go another way. I’m terrified of them, which is really unlucky for me because I live in a big city, there are pigeons everywhere I go.

#383 Namelessnessone :

I am afraid of spiders.
I am afraid of my peanut allergy working against me, in some horrible way.
I am afraid of food getting stuck in my throat, in the midst of swallowing, and nobody being around to help, or people being around and not helping me at all.
I am also afraid of swallowing pills, and would honestly much rather get a guaranteed lifetime of needles, then to swallow another pill ever again.

I am beyond petrified of sirens and horns of ALL types. I buckle to my knees with fear when they blare. Especially when the sirens are related to emergency vehicles, because of all the accidents I have survived and bad news I have recieved over the years. I cringe when I hear sirens and curl up in a ball, in public SERIOUSLY.I think of the person/s being attended to, and even of their families. My reaction is ALWAYS exactly the same even when I’m by myself.
I am also really afraid of car horns, like after a car accident. When I hear people “laying on the horn” I think of the very very worst.

I’m afraid of possums. One night, i was sitting in my backyard and I was distracted because I was messing with my phone. I felt something soft brush against my leg and I thought it was one of the many cats I have…it was an ugly ass possum! It ran off when I jumped in surprise and it didn’t bite me (thank god) but I then ran down the block screaming. When I got to the end of the block, I threw up because I was so scared! Possums are soooo creepy. I don’t mind raccoons or skunks or any other critter that comes out at night but possums I can’t tolerate. It’s mostly the way they look that scares me. They look like giant mutated rats morphed with an owl (idk, that’s what I see when I look at their faces lol). *shutters* eeek!

I have hematophobia- fear of blood.
It really freaks me out! Im okay with my blood, but when its someone elses… blegh. I cry and feel like Im going to vomit. Then people describe it and its all red and grooss and I just looked at my red hat and felt like vomiting.
P.S I am turning 12 October 2014
P.SS Please dont just repeat phobias from the list cos we have all read it and WE KNOW, OKAY. Thanks! ;-D
