Today I just wanted to create a thread of unusual fears. I know that there have been threads of phobias before, but generally it was filled with things like spiders, heights, etc. Pretty normal stuff, right?
I want this thread to be a little bit more a-typical. Fears that are not shared by many of your friends, or most people you meet.
For instance, occasionally, when I am running on the side walk late at night, I am overwhelmed by this haunting unease that I am about to trip over a wire. It feels like the next step I take will catch on a string I will fall. Makes me look weird as hell when I run at night, too.
Another rather unusual one, I am pretty scared around bodies of water (I mean, it even sounds creepy, bodies of water). I can deal with smaller amounts of water, like rain and tap water, but can't deal with large bodies of it. Lakes, ponds, pools, even baths sometimes, and the ocean. Especially the ocean (which probably ties into the fact that I am TERRIFIED of jellyfish). Although I can usually deal with pools, sometimes when I am swimming I get a very nagging sense of foreboding and I have to run out of the pool looking like an idiot.
Lastly, for some reason I am uncomfortable with the number 292. It just... freaks me out. I have absolutely no explanation why, it just does.
What about you guys? And please, to keep it interesting, make sure they are unusual. Not cockroaches, darkness, or death, but something unique.
