Wow, I had to look all those up. Except the long one (surprisingly I know that one). :D

A frightened creature you are. Have you tried seeing a psychologist about it?
I do have a therapist, actually. I don't visit her that often these days... And when I do, I assure you, it has very little to do with my fear of insects :) (btw, I'm amazed to see how common this one is.)

Anyhow, no worries, I guess I simply like to exaggerate my fears. I do not take those listed too seriously. :)
When I let go of what I am, I become what i might be.

Yeah, those are some of the very common fears but with a name they sound serious. :D

I'm socially anxious but my only fear that is crippling is heights. I get anywhere above the third rung of a ladder and I get dizzy. I even get a little woozy standing on the ground and looking up at tall buildings. It runs in my family.

I don't know if you've seen this but it's funny as hell:

Fear of pickles: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HSCotdOh5WY

Fear of peaches: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-GaNGYek ... re=related

Fear of balloons: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yH8UZJ1y ... re=related

The host is a bit of a jerk for scaring them all but it's what the audience wants obviously.

When I dwell on it, the fact that I'll cease to exist is rather petrifying. I start to panic because I'm not living up to what I expect for myself.

1. Loss of autonomy
2. Debilitating fear of hospitals
3. Slight fear of commitment

My beliefs are science based so I'm good with Hospitals -

thats when beliefs really do come in handy :)

from a very small age i have never been hung up about dying, but part of the reason is i'm too caught up in fantasy land, and another reason is i believe i'm already dead :lol:

Fear of heights.
Fear of independence - Probably just a confidence problem.
Fear of not doing anything with my life? - not sure about this one.
Fear of not being intelligent - Again, probably a confidence problem.
Fear of being abandoned.

Fear of spiders, fear of moths, fear of winged things in general (yes, including butterflies). And stuff that crawls.

Airplanes, helicopters.

Not being true to myself, moulding myself to other people's standards, plagiarism, needing other people's confirmation before doing stuff. Heart illnesses. Loss of intelligence. Loss of limbs. Loss of shelter. Loss of identity.

Etc.

I am scared of bugs, arachnids, large leaves and flowers, not doing anything with my life, not making a difference in this world, and being naked in public.
I'm not entirely sure why I am scared of these, but if you sjow me one or subject me to one I will have major issues the rest of my life. PTSD, maybe.

Faby, you read my mind. Especially the top fears. Why does no one respect our fear of butterflies?! They are legitimately creepy!!

Recently my girlfriend got on top of me and was sorta holding me down and was right up in my face looking down at me.. I can handle that for a short time but with each passing second it felt like she was robbing my breath and I was trapped there with no Way out. I felt myself start to sweat after what could've only been a minute and told her I needed some space. She is an ENFJ and I guess that was the worst thing I could've said.. no .matter how much I Explained the anxiety or the way I felt it was like there was no getting thru at all. I'm borderline INTJ so this may be why i can sometimes be emotionally detached, I mean I just wanted to go to sleep and forget about it lol
