Wow, I don’t think I have been this long without blogging ever.. LOL.. Super-swamped week.. Anyhow here’s a list of Phobias I have. Please feel free to comment or share any of yours. Fortunately for me, none of these truly hinder my life.
Gerascophobia–The fear of growing old or aging.
I know man has been searching for the fountain of youth forever. I don’t wanna live for ever, I just don’t want to get old. I wanna stay young and active. There’s just something about getting old that worries me. Maybe its the lost of mobility or lack of endurance.
Phalacrophia– The fear of becoming bald
Yeah I really don’t want to go bald. I won’t wear a fake hair piece or get plugs, but man, can I please keep my hair. Both of my grandfarther on my mom’s side went bald, so I guess there is no hope for me.
Belono-Ommataphobia – The fear of sharp objects sticking you in the eye.** This is the combination of 2 phobias)
I seriously have issue this this one. I constantly walk around thinking about this. I don’t like walking in metal art galleries and such. Places with glass ceiling are extremely scary. I don’t think I’ll ever have contacts, even though they are plastic/glass. Horror movies with eye injuries freak me out.
Soteriophobia– The fear of having to depend on other.
I know this stems from being and only child, issues I have/had with my father. I just like handling my own things. I don’t like depending on other people to come through for me. It’s too unpredictable.
Atychiphobia – The fear of failure.
It’s sorta what keeps me motivated. To give up is to fail, and I don’t want to fail. I’ve always placed this pressure on myself to succeed and excel and with that, there’s always that little doubt, that things might not go as plan. But if you rework, retry, you can always avoid failure.
