Now, we think we do not have one - like I did but then, I realize I did have. As a matter of fact, I was relieved! I thought I was the only one who felt that way which made me felt like I'm just paranoid or being stupid.
I have 2 phobias:
Climacophobia - Fear of stairs, climbing or falling down the stairs
Molluscophobia - Fear of snails & slugs
Herpetophobia - Fear of animals that creep crawly (I'm scared of caterpillars)
Maybe my phobias sound quite silly to some of you but I am really scared of staircase. Whenever I climb up the stairs at home, I always have this vision of me falling back down and break my neck. It's not funny. Sometimes I get so scared that I would lean forward to avoid falling backward.
The school is the worst because my class is at the highest floor. I always get this ill feeling of falling down the stairs and hurt my neck. I don't know why but I'm fine with going down the stairs. The higher I go, the more 'crazy' I get until the lightest slip of my hand cause me to jump out of my skin.
On the other hand, when it comes to animals - I'm down to be the silliest person you ever meet. I'm scared of snails and slugs! I HATE THEM! I remember I used to cry just by the sight of the snails...so far I haven't 'meet' any slugs and I do NOT want to.
My last phobia is that I'm scared of caterpillars. They disgust me! I'm fine with snakes. In fact, I love snakes! I love the snake's skin and don't mind holding them(I held them before) but if you ask me to hold a caterpillar, the chances of you getting me to hold is ZERO. Once I was climbing up the stairs(really slowly) up to the water slide when I stopped suddenly. There was a caterpillar with colourful colours on one of the step. I thought I was going to die there! But thank God a bucnh of boys came rushing up the stairs, not seeing the tiny caterpillar, kick it and it fell onto the ground.
I have always been sympathetic to animals but at that moment, I thought silently: Serve you right! HAHAH! That's another reason why I hate gardening. You never know what you might get and you think it's a leaf but it's not. Ewww.
Even celebrities have phobia too.
Johnny Deep has Coulrophobia - scared of clowns
Keanu Reeve has Sctophobia (fear of darkness) and Cyberphobia (fear of computers)
Pamela Anderson has Catoptrophobia - fear of mirrors (God, seriously?)
David Beckham has Ataxophobia - fear of untidiness
Nicole Kidman has a fear of butterflies
Hey! There's also Venustraphobia - Fear of beautiful women. HAHAH!
Seriously. You have to find out your own phobias - it's fun!
