I HAVE NO PHOBIAS :twisted:
Exept that one, when you afraid that someone else would see your big penis, and don't see your personality, just liked your penis and like you for that reason.

The One's that also have this fobia: I; Marilyn Manson; Maybe some of you.

I think you mean the one were you pretend to be arrogant in order to hide the fact that you are really self conscious.

I wouldn't say it's paranoia, more like anxiety, which I have have horrible anxieties, oh and I am deathly afraid of spiders, horrid creatures

I'll add mine to the list: I'm afraid of doctors and terrified of going to the dentist...I'll go because I have to but I worry about the appointment for weeks ahead of time. My blood pressure is always off the chart in the doctor's office and I have to show them it's normal at home or they want to put me on blood pressure medicine.

And yes, I'm a generally anxious person. I don't tell people how often I feel anxious, but I'll tell it here, because I'm among similar people.

It must suck being afraid of doctors. I don't think I have any true phobias, except maybe loss of a loved one or a house fire. And of course, fear of heights, but everyone's born with that one. As for anxiety, I doubt that I have any severe anxiety, but when I worry, I worry hard. And don't feel reluctant about talking about your problems we're all here.

You're kind, Entity. I guess I don't think of my anxiety as a problem--although the doctor/dentist thing is a real nuisance. On the other hand, I wonder how it would feel to live in a body that wasn't capable of pumping so much adrenaline for so little cause.

Can't help you with that one. I've always had overactive adrenals. For years, a sudden noise would see me instantly primed for combat to the death.
Things are better now, though. Maybe age mellows even the glands. Either that, or I no longer have the energy to react to anything less than an atomic bomb.

There's a big difference between a reaction and an overreaction.

I'm glad I'm not the only one. For most of my life, I thought my overly-strong nervous reactions were a matter of mental control, a mental problem. Ha! I've come to realize that it's primarily a physical problem...I'm still working on the mental aspects of it, though, since that's the only aspect I can control. (Well, other than chemicals, which I wouldn't do)
