    Since I mostly post waffle I thought I'd go a little deeper ;)
    I want to know what scares you, from the perfectly understandable to the completely irrational. What are your biggest fears, and does anyone have an actual phobia?
    I used to think nothing scared me and I just had severe aversions to some random stuff, but that's when the lights are on :nailbiting:
    (I'm aware I probably need a psychiatrist, but Nexopia is kinda the same thing)

    I don't like spiders either, but my reasoning is I just don't want them to get in my hair. As long as that doesn't happen I don't mind trapping them under a glass and letting them go outside.
    Fun fact @SirJordan spiders are said to be attracted to witches, so if you see a lot maybe your letter to Hogwarts really did get lost in the mail and you're already several years late to first term :p

    I am so irrationally afraid of heights. My girlfriend hates it when we hike mountains or go to waterfalls and I'm shaking at the top. I can't help it.

    I don't know if that's an irrational fear, it's a really common one. Did you fall or get pushed off of anything as a kid?

    No, but I'm short.

    I know it's a common fear, but as far as I know there is absolutely no basis for it. My Mom is afraid of heights, too. Could phobias be genetic?

    I've seen a bit of research that suggests phobias could be genetic. Based on identical twins growing up in different families, something about DNA memory. But it's more likely a learned phobia if you share it with someone close to you.

    I have a phobia of being away from Wrecky, I believe the jewish forcefield holding the world together is controlling both of us to feel each others pain and suffering

    I feel you Posta, I don't like boats or the ocean or lakes or swimming or diving or really anything to do with water :eek:
    Showers, pools and hottubs are the exception.

    That's why I'm down with pools, you might find the odd band-aid if it's public but it's no where near as scary as what's at the bottom of the ocean or a murky lake full of weeds and sunken logs.

    Spiders are nope. But I don't kill them, I trap them and put them outside. And if I think it talk too much about my own death, I'll lose my shit. These are common though.

    I have a totally irrational visceral fear of the sound of steam trains. Every time I hear one in real life, I have an anxiety attack. Why? I don't friggin know. I used to live near a train line, and the commuter steam train would set me off. I have no reason for this. My body has decided I'm scared. My brain doesn't care. I'd love to go on a steam train! The anxiety attacks made me laugh a little, because WTF.
