I made a thread about abnormal fears a while ago but my list has changed since then. Most of these things I am relatively terrified of. In no particular order:


1. Getting stuck in tight spaces.

2. Edges (not heights - just looking over the edge of a tall place or looking up while standing under a tall building makes my knees weak).

3. Permanent scars from mosquito bites.

4. Anything to do with losing partial/total vision, I am extremely sensitive about eye injuries etc.

5. Highways, especially busy ones.

6. Driving in general (I have barely been in a car since Covid started and am not used to it anymore - it always feels out of control, like everything is one step away from colliding).

7. Ascending/descending steep hills (by foot, in a vehicle, etc).

8. Big waves in the ocean.

9. Dogs that aren't my own (I always go out of my way to avoid people walking dogs, and dogs in other peoples houses when possible).

10. Spiders and bugs in general.

11. Most places at night (the streets, forests, etc).

12. Stores that aren't well lit.

13. Jumpscares, I hate jumpscares with a passion.

14. Accidentally eating moldy food.

15. Being kneecapped like the IRA used to do.

16. Getting a papercut or bee sting in the eye.

17. Being pushed into a bonfire/campfire.

18. Falling/being pushed into the subway tracks pit.

19. Swallowing my tongue.

20. Getting HIV or any other STI.

21. Getting falsely convicted of rape.

22. Losing my phone/watch down a sewer gate.

23. Getting my eyes gouged out.

24. Getting a flesh-eating disease.

25. Getting electrocuted while showering during a thunderstorm.

26. Having my balls crushed by sitting on them/being kicked.

27. Having a needle stuck up my urethra.

28. My teeth losing their enamel over time because of brushing slightly too hard.

29. Getting a small object (eg. a pea) stuck up my nose.

30. Getting my circulation cut off by tight clothing to the point where I develop gangrene.


This thread probably makes me sound like a lunatic but I swear I'm mostly normal :D any of you have strange fears you'd like to share?

(edit: originally there were 10 on this list but I might add more as they come to me)

no fear is abnormal. it's perfectly natural to feel fear. i think calling it irrational or unusual would be more apt.
