For me it's needles, spiders and moving staircases (is that the proper expression? it's on the tip of my tongue, but I'm not sure
The needles/injection thing is most bothersome in everyday life, especially if - like now - I need to have my blood checked every few weeks! Just seeing somebody sitting with their arm extended before they get stung...ugh!Makes my stomach turn
A few months ago, the doctor's assistant just couldn't catch my veins...left arm, right arm...I kept twitching with shock and when eventually the other assistant came and just rammed the needle in the back of my hand...
I clutched the chair and after a moment or so one of them asked if I was ok (must have turned quite pale after that 'attack') and since I felt very dizzy and
shaky, they led me to another room for me to lay down...just in time before I fainted!
Spiders have been a great fear of mine for many years...I remember as a very young girl that I didn't mind them, but then I had some kind of a weird dream where bugs and spiders were creeping all over me....help!
I've managed to cope with it, though, learned about spiders and they turned out to be really fascinating...as long as they're about thumbnail size, I'm ok, but then...
My bf and I once went to the garden center and they had a tarantula there. While it was just sitting there, fine, I was watching and amazed. Then one leg moved and my bf couldn't see me no more - after a while he found me shivering and shaking in the fish dept.!
As for the staircase thing...I really have no idea where I got that from - my mum says her mum was just the same, couldn't face getting on a moving staircase, but I doubt it's genetical
Actually for me it's just going downstairs that gives me the chills (I'm afraid I might trip and fall) and though I tell people it's because I once fell downstairs as a child, that fear has been there long before...
