What phobias do you have?


Answer from: alice2014:
My interests: varied, but the following can be highlighted: literature, history...


I do not know precisely, whether it is possible to name it a phobia, or it is more likely to approach paranoia, but personally for me it already is a phobia.
Before leaving somewhere in my apartment, I walk through it several times and check if I have turned off everything, from tap water to the gas stove. The worst part comes afterwards. I close the door and check a few times to make sure I've closed it. Then I frantically start winding myself up: did I close the door, did I turn off the gas, and didn't I leave the refrigerator open?
To be honest, I've already videotaped myself closing the door, etc.д.
And it all started with the simplest thing: once I did not close the door. And that's when it started.
Once again, it is more like paranoia, but for me it is already phobia!

All that I will now list are not just petty fears, but real phobias. Some of the ones listed sometimes evoke the very fear that makes " that makes you cringe.. " и
" a chill down my spine "
- Fear of mannequins
- loud noises (fireworks, train noise, vacuum cleaner, drill, hammering)
- I'm terrified of getting lost (I don't know my way around at all) 
- afraid that someone will shoot me drunk (in our town recently shot a cab driver because of political differences, and always feared, now not in vain)
- I am afraid of the dark (it always seems that someone is following me)
- Afraid to look out the window at night (I live on the first floor)
- I'm afraid to go crazy and not understand when it has happened and that it has happened in principle!
- Start talking to myself in public 
- fall asleep and never wake up
- fall ill with an incurable disease 
- grow old in body but not in soul (I'm in my early 20s, but my hands are already getting old. I don't understand it and I'm scared that it's happening)
- die young 
That's pretty much it.

I am very much afraid of heights. For example, when I look out of the window of the fifth floor, it seems to me as if there are all 9 and my knees start to shake terribly.

I used to hate looking at naked bodies. Seeing them in real life or in works of art wasn't really important. It made me feel embarrassed, ashamed, disgusted. It gradually turned into a phobia and sometimes into paranoia. 
But with time I began to look at it completely differently: the bodies no longer seemed indecent to me. I learned to see the natural beauty in them, and in absolutely all bodies.

There's a whole bunch of them! From the most innocuous to those that interfere with a full life. I will write about the ones that come to mind, otherwise the list would be too long if I write about all of them at once. I don't know if these are phobias or not - just fears:

21. I'm afraid of being near corpses and seeing death; 
22. Afraid of losing my eyesight; 
23. "Better not to do it at all than to do it badly" - I don't think it's fear, more like a perfectionist's hiccup; 
24. Afraid of pain, very afraid; 
25. I'm afraid to be alone for a long time; 
26. I am afraid of the crazy people; 
27. Afraid to die and, as vanilla as it sounds... Okay, that's personal, kk); 
28. Afraid of drugs and being around them... (once when I was a kid, I was even afraid someone might plant some powder in my backpack on the way out);
