My fears

I like to think that I'm not a very fearful person, I don't mind heights, I'm not afraid of the dark and I'm not scared of many animals. I will admit that I am terrified of spiders, partly because when I was about seven, I remember sitting on my bed, looking at my teddy's and there was a massive spider (I was seven so it may have been average size, but to me this was the biggest spider I had ever seen), sitting on the nose of my favourite purple teddy bear.

I think this experience definitely put me of spiders for life, and that bear didn't stay in my collection of teddy's for long after that. Clowns are also a big no for me, I hate them. I think its something about the sinister smile that is painted on their face that makes me petrified of them.

One of the other fears I used to have was school, now that may sound weird but when I was little I would cry all day at school and hated it, I never knew why which is weird. My fear of school went away at secondary school and I really enjoy it (Even when there was always someone commenting on my weight), but even know (although I don't like to admit it) I still don't like going into primary schools if I have to pick up relatives from school.

I did some research, well by that I mean I asked Google about fears and I found out some weird fears which I thought I would mention. There was a website called http://phobialist.com/ and this has all sorts of phobias that I didn't even know existed.
Barophobia- Fear of gravity.
Bibliophobia- Fear of books.
It must be terrible to have these fears/phobias, I cant imagine my life if I had a fear of books, or a fear of gravity.


Well that was a bit of a weird post but I thought it would be good to see what other phobias and fears there are, So do any of you have any fears?



Bye for now xxx
