Velvet... worse than fingernails on a blackboard... If I inadvertenly touch anything made from velvet - it makes me feel almost sick..

It was **** when I was a child and my mother insisted that it was just a fad that I didn't like the stuff - and INSISTED in dressing me in pretty little velvet dresses or worse, coats with velvet collars and cuffs and buttons.... I'm cringing as I type this!

Oops, I think the censor decided that we aren't grown ups and 'asterisked' the word H e ll out!

I'm terrified of spiders, centipedes, millipedes, roaches, fire ants, & bunch of other crawly things. Thunderstorms make me want to crawl under the bed with a blanket & hide. But my most bizarre fear is of radishes. I got stung by a wasp when I was about 10 or so as I was watering a pot of them & now whenever I see a radish I automatically associate it with that wasp. My 2nd most bizarre fear is getting electrocuted when I plug something into an outlet. I've seen it happen & it wasn't a very fun thing to watch!! I'm also afraid of heights & small dark spaces. OK, I'm just a big ol' scaredy cat!!

Snakes..........but the wierd thing is I used to play with gardner snakes when i was a kid but you can't get me near the things now. And definetely spiders..............especially hairy ones. I can never remember which are suppose to be poisonous so I freak and run at the sight of them.......except if their really small then I let them have it.

Bubble Gum. Or anything that overfills your mouth, really.

Yes, I know. Weird. But when I was very little, I had this recurring dream where I was chewing bubble gum, and there was too much. So, I would bite it in half and throw part away. But then there was still too much, so I would try to throw the whole thing away. But no matter what I did, I still had this huge wad of gum in my mouth! Arrggghhh!!

And no, I never woke up with my pillow in my mouth.

Consequently, bubble gum kinda weirds me out, or anything that's really mouth-filling.
Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body...but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, wine in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO what a ride!"

The only thing I have a guttural fear of is heights.

Snakes, scorpions, gila monsters, I was raised with them and used to collect them for guys doing research.

Yes poisonous snakes.

I can grab them, or used to be able to, without missing a heartbeat.

Used to be called upon by my neighbors to rid their house of lizards and snakes.

But put me near a ten foot height, and I crumble.

Acrophobia, it is very common. So it may not be an appropriate answer here.

But I cannot get near a cliff or even get on the roof of the house. Just get me near a height and I turn to jello.

But I can fly in a plane with no problem, go figure.

The dentist! I have nightmares for three nights in a row before having to even get my teeth cleaned. I hate HATE HATE peoples fingers in my mouth and I am a huge whimp when it comes to pain of any kind.
