My greatgrandmother, me, and now my lil sis, all have the same exact fear of toilets. And no-one knows why or how to get rid of it....

It takes me forever to get used to my HOME toilet. We've had our new toilet for about 3 months now, and it still scares me. I can't walk by the toilet department at Home Depot...

Automatic toilets are the worst, and when we're out in public places, i'll hold it until we get home..sometimes it's about 5-6 hours...

but amazingly, I don't get bladder infections...

Another unique fear I've never heard of.

ha...No-ones ever heard of it. I don't know what the deal is. My sister makes me or my mom go in the restroom with her.

And it's weird, because when I'm with her, I'm the big sis gonna protect her from the mean potty. But i'm scared (haha) of them

My heart starts beating really fast, and I feel a chill down my back but I feel like i'm sweating at the same time...I mean I KNOW nothing is gonna happen, but i can't control it.

I remembered another irrational fear the other night after posing this question with friends!

I have such a fear of dark oak beds, especially when they are antique and have a foot board as well as a head board! I fear that someone died in it!

When I was on the French Exchange, I was provided with a room with an antique dark oak bed with head and foot boards! I had to sleep with my socks (of which I do not like to wear!) on so that I wouldn't touch the wood and kept curled up in the middle of the bed!

I can laugh now, but it really does scare me!!

I remembered another one while driving to work this morning...

I'm afraid of driving behind those big car-carrier trucks on the expressway. I'm just positive the one dangling off the back is going to cut loose and come crashing through my windshield. I'll go out of my way to avoid being behind one, and if I get stuck behind one in traffic, I'll leave a L O T of space between me and it.

I would say my only fear is riding on those carnival rides that flips you upside down real fast in a small cage that fits only 2 people. My stomach turns just watching those things or even thinking about it when someone asks me to go on one. EEEK!

That's what happens to me with plants!

I believe some people would insist that's a rational fear.

When we were kids my grandad always warned us about the dangers of escalators. He said that if you weren't quick enough stepping off at the end you could get your foot caught in the spikes and be pulled underneath. Needless to say, us kids were always quick to get off the escalator!

Spiders!!!

I guess, that it's a pretty common fear, but that's the only thing that I'm afraid of... well, that & murderers... I would say that I'm afraid of murders too.

I can hold a snake, lizard, roach or any other kind of bug, but I terrified of spiders!

I am scared to death of birds!! I don't mind them flying around outside, but the ones in the pet store!! UGH!! Or those super-tame birds like pigeons that hang around parks or where people frequent. I have no desire to have my eyeballs pecked-out!!

I have OCD, which is bad enough - am happy when I don't have to leave home because that entails checking the stove, electrical outlets, taps, etc. But my fears are spiders (I dream about them frequently too, which is horrible); heights; flying (have given it up entirely, which is a shame because I can't go abroad; and thunder-and-lightening - this last is a killer for me - have never been caught out of doors during one as yet - would probably go berserk if I was. Ironically, I have been very successful in my work and am considered to be (ahem!) a very strong person -and the go-to person for information and advice.....they don't know about the OCD!!

I thought I had replied to this thread!

Mirrors at nighttime! I am always afraid that something will come through them. Definitely irrational!

Christy - I am the same, I have a fear of embarrassing myself so I always think carefully before I talk about something and I say it to myself to make sure it sounds right.

I have been told that I have OCD because of some things that I do, like if theres eggs, I have to have an even number, I prefer everything in even numbers - if theres an odd one, I get all nervous and take the odd object and get it used.

Clowns scare me. I believe it is because of the multiple personality aspect - the true person is different from the person being portrayed. It doesnt help that movies portray clowns as bad! (oh yeah, John Wayne Gacy comes to mind also!)

I am scared of Keas - they are an alpine parrot here in NZ and they have big beaks and I am always scared that they are going to peck my eyes out.

Wow, I certainly sound like a scaredy cat!

Spiders! They literally make me go into hysterics and I seem to have no control over this. I probably need professional help, he he he.

I also fear algebra, geometry, and calculus. It took me four times to pass high school algebra. SAT scores: Reading 750, Math 400, lol. I spent six years in college because I had to take EVERY remedial math class, three of them! The day of the remedial exit exam I ended up in the psych office hyperventilating before the exam began.

Then, when I was taking the math courses that counted towards my GPA that would be the only course I took during that semester. I thought I was going to go mad during the calculus semester! Still haven't used any of it in real life ... sigh ...
