Bit of a plug I know but it's all for a very good cause. As you can see from my signature not only do I cook in my spare time but I run a Phobia Support Forum.

My phobias include: Dentists, needles and spiders!

I have 3 phobias since my childhood:

Achluophobia - Fear of darkness.

Mysophobia - Fear of germs or contamination or dirt, I have this phobia in extreme, even thinking about the contamination or germs causes rash in my body.

Claustrophobia - Fear of confined spaces.

I have a fear of edges and ledges. Put me more than 10 feet off the ground and I will NOT stand on the edge of the precipe. Not within 3 feet.
Put up a flimsy barrier of any kind and I am fine.
No fear of heights... just edges.

And dentists. Thank goodness I got good teeth genes.

And ticks. Ticks are demonic creatures that should be eradicated.

I am petrified of heights. This last week we were at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland. There was one staircase that led up to the 6th floor from the 5th that jutted out over the open space in the center of the building and you could look down to the ground floor. There was a clear barrier from the rail to the step and I was a wreck by the time I got to the top! Coming down those steps was worse since I was forced to look down!

I also am not fond of cows. Fortunately, I live in the city and don't encounter them often!

simply can't be confined. doesn't matter how big or how small the space. i know where it came from. was held hostage when my husband was killed. i need to know i can get out and sometimes i have to do just that, just get out. many of the other phobias from the event have gone away or have been made manageable. not this one.
