What are some of your irrational fears, /sp/?

I used to have an intense phobia of clowns. It's been phased out many, many years ago, but it was absolutely brutal for a little while to even catch a glimpse of anything clown-related. My cousins had this dome covering for a ceiling light with an image of a cartoon clown and I couldn't even be in that room unless it was taken down.

I was just horribly spooked by clowns for whatever reason.

No.2

Clowns are fucking awful, I don't blame you.

My mom had this friend when I was growing up named Wendy, and looking back on it now she was probably some dominatrix or something

Anyway, one time I had to spend the night their while my mom was out of time. This fucking lady had DOZENS of the most horrible wooden clown dolls, paintings, and sculptures

And they were all old and looked like they had been dragged from hell

It was the worst sleep ever. I remember laying on my left side the whole time and just staring at a clownless corner of the room

I have the most generic of phobias: heights
I can't deal with them. Mostly because I imagine I'm falling and how my bones break when I reach the floor.

My other phobia is weirder.
People pretending to be statues. Street performers mostly. The thought of now knowing when and how they'll move scares me for some reason.

Heights is my biggest fear. It's going up that's the easy part but when I try to go down I freeze and can't bring myself to move.

Fainting. I hate the way it feels, to lose all bodily control in that moment, having it start in my feet while I get light-headed. Waking up and not knowing how much time has passed, finding people standing over me. Not to mention when I was in high school, people thought it was hilarious that I could just drop like that. They would say stuff 'her head must be too heavy lololol' which would make me way more conscientious of it happening. The worst part is is that if I even -think- I have the slightest sensation of fainting, I get overly anxious and make fainting more likely to actually happen. It becomes a panic of 'oh god i'm going to faint i don't want to faint'. My ridiculous phobia is the worst when I drive because that's probably one of the worst places it could happen.

No.14

>>13
How come you would faint? Did you have diabetes or something?

Underwater things that you can't really make out are really really creepy. It's really spooky when you're swimming and you can't see the bottom. Or when you're close to a rock or a crevice and you can't see anything but darkness in it.

Some other shit I find spooky:

>Television static

>Ambient Noise
>Really claustrophobic audio recordings
>Inanimate objects that look like they have faces
>Inanimate things that have eyes
>large spiders/close ups of spiders
>physical mutations
>empty hospitals

I have this fear of getting stabbed on my bed while I am listening to music. Thing is, I can't listen to my music if it is playing softly. I always blare what I'm listening to and this disables my ability to listen to anything else. If a fire alarm went off, although I have none, I'd not hear it.

Where I live, I've become familiar with distinct noises that let me know if the front door is open or if the gate to my premises has been breached. While lying in bed with the earphones in, this skill is lost.

I never fail to become drenched with this creeping feeling around my neck or heart, fearing someones knife slip right in.

Public swimming pools of any kind.
God, these things are a cluster fuck of everything I fear/despise. So many things are wrong with public pools that I made a list:

>Self conscience because I'm half naked in front of strangers

>Public pools are disgusting cesspools filled with the local peoples' piss and shit
>Public pools are usually packed to the brim with people breaching your personal space
>Not to mention all these people are practically naked and always touching you
>Not to mention many of these people are obese tubs of lard, bulging out of what little "clothing" is covering them
>Also, minorities
>I have annoyingly sensitive skin, so I associate swimming pools with getting blistering, excruciating sunburns that last for days, and make it painful to even lie down.
>I have a crippling fear of "the deep end"
(I can swim, It's just something about deep water I find unsettling. )
>If you swim too deep, your ears pop painfully
>chlorine water in your eyes
>chlorine water up your nose
>putrid chemical smell and sunscreen smell everywhere

Oh, also, my parents apparently loved to torment me as a kid by telling me "cautionary" fucking horror stories to keep me safe.
They told me there was this grate at the bottom of the deep end that, when it was taken off, turned into a huge, suctioning drain. They said a kid was at a party and he got sucked to the bottom and drowned. The parents didn't find him until the party was over, hours later. They said they heard it on the news, but I call bullshit.

Needless to say, I fucking hate swimming, and haven't done so since I was thirteen. The fact that summer is coming back around is a source of extreme anxiety for me. The mere heat of the sun brings back horrible feelings. The most frustrating part about this is that people think I'm insane for this phobia.

For the longest time I was absolutely fucking terrified of clowns. It all started when my sister rented the mini-series It when I was like six or something. Sure spooked me good. I'd always dread going to sleep, worrying about whether or not I'd dream of clowns at all. By the time I reached middle school I had mostly grown out of the phobia, reading the original novel probably helped a lot.
Aside from that, it's mostly other normal phobias like the dark and heights that still get to me.

Things flattening me and sucking me up. Like vacuums, escalators, and wheels heading toward me. I mean, I can handle them when they aren't near me, and I can ride bikes and use vacuums, but when they're being moved near me by others, it terrifies me.
Also, people watching me when I can't see them. When I lived at home, I couldn't be on our livingroom PC during the day, because I didn't want people to see what I was doing, even when it wasn't really embarrassing.

I'm always very scared about my health, mostly my heart. I very often think I'm having or going to have a heart attack or something similar. i also worry about having a stroke or some other way that I could just die suddenly out of nowhere. I'm also just generally paranoid, I tend to overcook meat because I'm scared of dying from infection on undercooked meat. I often keep a knife near me even when I have already locked all the doors and windows because I'm scared someone will come in. I don't leave the house so much anymore, because if I have a heart attack on the train or something like that it's harder for an ambulance to get to me. I have been to some of the top cardiologists in the country and had many tests all have found nothing, but I still feel like some day my heart will just stop and I will die

This sounds really debilitating :( I'm sorry to hear this.

I know it's cliche to suggest, but have you thought of seeking help? It's normal to want to preserve one's life, but you can't be scared of everything.

When I was a child, I liked going swimming but I absolutely hated being underwater and looking across towards the deep end from the shallow end. This was a very specific fear - the depth of the blue colour from looking through all that water scared me. I could not bear looking at the murky, Neptune-like blue which enveloped my entire field of vision.

On many nights, I stayed up after the lights went out for up to an hour just listening to every creak and crackle of noise from the house, due to an irrational fear of being murdered in my sleep. I don't want to exaggerate this - I would always fall soundly sleep eventually - but on some nights I doubted whether I'd wake up alive and felt grateful in the morning for it. That was probably rare, though I distinctly remember it.

Nowadays, my skin begins to crawl at the suggestion or evidence of plastic surgery, especially lip injections. The idea of someone fiddling with my intact organs, re-organising bones and skin, injecting foreign substances in, and sewing things up afterwards creeps me out.

No.128

>>121
it's not as bad as I made it seem, certainly it is not as bad as it was this time last year. Mostly it's part of a more general anxiety problem, but that's kind of off topic. I did go to therapy for a while when I was younger but i haven't been in a while, it didn't really help then so I doubt it will now. If I do get help it would probably be for depression.
>>122
I've spent a really long time thinking about this. It's not that I fear death (well not more than is natural), rather, I fear dying suddenly with no warning. I think it comes from some experiences as a young kid but I'd rather not go into too much detail about that. There's probably other influences too. I think a part of me wants to have some sort of disease, perhaps so that people will pay attention to me or care for me in some way. I'm not really sure, my head is a confusing place.

I have a couple fears I can rationalize, like being afraid of needles, but one thing I never understood was my fear of mirrors in the dark. I'm not afraid of the dark, and I'm not afraid of mirrors, but when you combine both it's hell for me.
I have a mirror hanging right above the sink of the bathroom, so, when I wake up at night and go take a piss or something without turning the light on, I just look down at the toilet and down at the sink.

I have no idea why it happens. I'm not scared of something coming from behind me, if anything I would rather look at the mirror and see if there's someone coming from behind, but there's just something unsettling about it, something I can't stand. Even looking at the slight reflection of my face scares the hell out of me.

>A fear of being stared at is my weirdest phobia I'd say. Not as bad as my fear of heights but it makes me terrible at giving speeches or performing in front of a crowd
I wouldn't call it a fear, but I have that too.
In my case it's more that having my face be stared at just makes me conscious of all the people seeing me do something.
Wearing a mask or something that hides my face, even if only my nose and mouth, appears to relieve me a lot. Though I can't exactly use a ninja mask during a presentation.

I wen't to the infirmary and they cleaned the wounds (they were small), I still have a little scar on my hand, I don't really mind it but I never understood why he did it, he even would lie about it, saying he didn't, he said another person came and started hitting me, so he stoped and bullshit like that.

Anyway, sorry for making such a long post, I had almost forgot about him and now that I remembered I felt like I had to get it out of my chest, if you're wondering what happened to my school life after that, it was ruined, I used to be considered 'the smart guy' and people would talk to me, some girls were interested on my actually, but after he started following me all my classmates stopped talking to me, some even said I was gay and he was my boyfriend, others started to hate me, girls won't even talk to me, etc.

After 2 years I decided to go to another school, never knew about him after that and thanks God for that.
Again, sorry I didn't expected to write such a long post.

>Never sympathize with the shy girl. It is not fucking worth it.

I agree, Never sympathize with the shy girl and the new guy who's a werido. It is not fucking worth it, it doesn't matter how much you feel bad abou them, don't do it.
