My dd has been afraid of butterflies her whole life. She's not overly fond of ladybugs, either. When we did the Behind the Seeds tour at Epcot, my family opted out of the ladybug release so she could enjoy the tour without doing the ladybug part. BTW, she LOVED the tour!

I'm afraid of rodents people commonly have as pets----hamsters, rats, gerbils.

Interesting to see all the people afraid of insects. Our 28 year old daughter is an Entomologist. She has had a love of insects since she was 3 years old when the 17-year cicadas were out. She would have them in her pockets and in every container she could find. Thankfully, I have no fear of insects or it would have been a real problem.

I am afraid of flying - really afraid. 60 years old and I have never, ever flown. People say to take drugs or to have a drink, but I still have to get on the airplane.

Dead things. I freak out at the sight of whole fish on a plate or a dead bird on a sidewalk.

I have a phobia with regards to the games "musical chairs" and "hot potato".

In the past I would need to leave the room while those games were going on. Now I just have to turn my back.

Taking my 3 kids when they were small to birthday parties was torture!! LOL!

I HATE bugs. All kinds. Even ants and lady bugs. And ESPECIALLY spiders. Oh my word, I scream bloody murder when I see one. Everyone in the office knows my screams by now. Lol.

This.

But I worry more about the kids losing a tooth/teeth than myself. I can handle bleeding, cuts, broken bones, concussion, anything else. The first thing I check when they get hurt is if they have all their teeth. Weird.

And I have already decided that I will NEVER have false teeth. If my teeth get that bad, I will get permanent replacements.

That's an interesting one! Is it anxiety related to not knowing when the music will stop or something?

I have a phobia of animals that hang over your head at museums and aquariums, especially whales and sharks. Dinosaurs freak me out too if they are over my head, I don't mind them if they're floor level though.

Birds, feathers and falling. Can't go up on the second story of a building if it has an open space down to the first floor. Chaperoned our fifth grade field trip to the capitol and had to be guided back down the stairs. It gives me vertigo.

Birds and feathers.....just YUCK!

I'm with you on this one...I FREAK OUT when I see them. We go to a family cabin and I know they are around. One day my husband put me out on the end of the floating dock because they were less likely to be seen out there vs. next to shore.

I was fishing away and got a bite, stood up to reel it in and a snake came out from under the dock. I completely lost my mind. I was screaming and trying to run back towards the shore...knocked over all our drinks and damn near put my husband in the lake shoving him out of my way.

I am absolutely TERRIFIED of them and would probably plow down a small child in my attempt to get away from one.

Heebie jeebies is right...BLEH!

I can't step on boxes to crush them -- I don't know why, because I've never had an injury or anything.

Clowns. Snakes. Tight Spaces.

Those are the top three that freak me out.

China Dolls.

It's their faces! I could never go to sleep if there was a china doll in the room... just thinking about the doll staring at me as I slept!

Snakes & lizards, but I'm okay w/ them if they're outside & I see them first. I have a fear of suddenly coming up on one or stepping on one.

I'm especially scared to death of finding either one in our house. We've never had a snake in our house (thank the Lord!), but I can't go to the bathroom at night w/o turning on the light. I'm not scared of the dark - I'm afraid a snake will be curled up in the bottom of the toilet, so I have to check. When I'm getting in the shower, I also check along the top of the shower to make sure there's not a snake lying along the top - that would absolutely awful - having a snake fall on me while I'm naked! I also can't sleep w/ my arm or hand hanging off the bed - I'm afraid a snake will slither up on me from the floor. I'm also afraid to get into the corners of closets... if I were a snake, that's where I'd hide.

Once I had a pile of clean laundry in the floor of our bedroom. The kids & I were getting ready for school, & DH was already at work - an hour away. I picked up a shirt from the pile of laundry, & 1/2 of a dead lizard fell at my feet. I. FREAKED. OUT. I called DH - crying - & asked if he would come get it. Of course, he couldn't leave a work to come pick up a DEAD lizard; plus, he was an hour away. He laughed at me. So I got our older DS to get bunches of toilet paper (I couldn't let him touch it w/ his bare hands!) to pick it up & throw it away - outside, all the way at the back of our yard. Then, bless his heart, he looked through the rest of the laundry trying to find the rest of the lizard. We never found it. I worried about coming across the other 1/2 for many weeks.
