Barackophobia - fear of birth certificates. This is very unusual ... only know of one prominent case.
Greekwordophobia - the distaste for long fake words pretending to be derived from Greek.
The sun is a class G2 star. Class G2 stars are yellow.
I have the ‘dropping keys’ phobia too.
Many do ;)
klimallayiphobia fear of climate change
I was once stuck on Miss. River bridge in thunderstorm and it was swaying. Very scary. For years after I had fear of bridges but eventually overcame it. Another irrational fear I have is left exits off the freeway. No idea where it came from...lol.
Exposure to what one fears is best medicine...at least in my experience.
I have Phobophobia, which is an irrational fear of phobias.
Is there a name for fear of being in a bathroom completely in the dark with the water running?
Paralyzing fear. Must be a latent childhood memory.
Don't worry. Fear of doing anything involving moving towards the left is common among Freepers and is a healthy survival instinct
I have a fear of falling asleep while clowns are eating American cheese. Does that count as one phobia or four?
Clown mastication, and American cheese at that? Horrible, squishy, like locusts destroying a harvest in the distance. The stuff of nightmares. Your fears are entirely rational, not a phobia at all.
Haha..yes..that is what I tell myself.
I think I have Xanthoturoculrosomniphobia, but I’m not sure if that refers to the fear of falling asleep while clowns are eating American cheese, or the fear of clowns falling asleep while eating American cheese, or American cheese falling asleep while it’s eating clowns.
