    Heres a fun little thread.

    Do any of you have any phobias? I have a few.

    Im scared of spiders, scared of heights (although I have no problems on a plane), and terrified of public speaking.

    I am absolutely terrified of snakes.
    I used to be terrified of public speaking, but I'm much better at it since I took Speech in college.

    Driving. I know it sounds completly stupid, but I am terrified of driving. I don't even have my license. Driving is such a huge responsibility too so it's like if your going to have a panick attack in a car on the road, I don't think that is safe to the other drivers. It's a really hard thing to be afraid of because it can really hold you back in life. I literally have panick attacks when I get behind the wheel and feel like I am going to black out. It's funny, none of it started until AFTER Driver's Ed and AFTER I got my permit. I dunno if it was the scenes of death crashes videos we saw in drivers ed or what. Now at age 27 I don't know if I will ever get it.

    I am afraid of puppets and the idea of being crushed between two gigantic slowly-moving concrete blocks.

    I don't like spiders. And it's not so much a fear of heights, it's that slow assent into the air. example I love roller coasters but that first assent where you go up really slow, that bothers me.

    *I have a slight fear of bones. I can look at them on tv w/ just a little bit of uneasiness but that is pretty much it. I have no problem w/ plastic bones on models though, just the real thing

    *I also hate riding in vans. It makes me really nervous and I always feel like the van is going to crash. It's pretty bad actually, if my friends want to go on a road trip and a van is involved, I will most decline out of fear.

    Flying. I'm fine with heights as long as I'm in a building but I cannot get on a plane.
    And babies! Not that they're scary themselves but whenever I'm around them, I feel like I'm made of cinderblocks and broken glass. I'm terrified to hold one for fear that I'll hurt it and forever be 'That girl that hurt the baby'. Being clumsy is no help either.
