After visiting someone in the hospital I have this extreme urge to wash my hands as soon as possible. Now, it may be someone I know really well and had no problems shaking hands with or even hugging a day or two before. But in a hospital setting even before I leave the room, the urge to wash is getting to me. Shoot, though I wash after going to the bathroom, if I am unable to do so that doesn't bother me anywhere near as much as not being able to wash after a hospital visit, being covered head to toe in grease doesn't bother me nearly as much either.

My wife says I am a bit extreme on it but as a nurse she does understand.

Acrophobia, the fear of heights.

Has anyone seen the movie "the guardian?" That is what I did in the Navy, an instructor at SAR school. I used to set in the door of a Helicoptor, no problem. 200 to 4000 feet, it did not bother me.

Now I can't even stand to watch a scene on television that has height involved. I can't stand to look over the rail of a second floor walkway.

But skyscrapers & flying vehicles??? I'm completely unashamed to admit it scares me to death. St. Louie arch??? Wanted to pee my pants, Sears Tower???

I hate needles. I had to take several glucose tolerance tests when I was a kid. They make you drink syrupy orange soda-tasting shit and then draw blood once an hour for eight hours. Needles just creep the shit out of me now. I don't even want to watch other people getting injected, even if it some fake scene from a TV show or movie - I'll always look away.

When I went through the innoculation battery in bootcamp, I thought I was going to die. They told us to relax our arms, and while I kept up appearances and ACTED like the shots didn't bother me, there was no way I could relax muscles. I was so tense that blood was running out of all the innoculation holes down both arms and dripping on the floor.

Looking up some phobias (like arachnophobia) and came across this. It's me to a tee.


http://www.psychresearch.com/scarymovies.htm

The subconscious mind (where the action is) is NOT a reasoning or rational mind. It's a mind that follows orders, or brings up the emotions of old experiences when triggered by a variety of stimuli.

Results of scary happenings, often movies, are fear of the dark, generalized anxiety, phobias, and in some cases, panic attacks. Typically kids love scary movies, not realizing the lasting effect it can have on them. Watching scary stuff when parents are gone or at another kid's house is a common occurrance.

You may think you've gotten over it. But maybe not. Any emotional experience may be a partial cause of a variety of symptoms in some susceptible people. These people will have phobias, bad dreams, nervousness and perhaps other symptoms.

Some other things that bother me, although not as much as needles:

Being in a brightly lit area surrounded by darkness, where I can't see but anything in the dark can see me.

Being in a body of water where I don't know what else is in there with me (thank you Steven Spielberg 4321 ).

I guess both of the above could be combined into a single category - fear of sneak attack from unseen and unknown things.

My issues with possums have been well documented here, but I've pretty effectively conquered that by turning many live possums into dead possums. :grr:


I've also got a thing about knives. Knives bother me more than guns - not so much the stabbing aspect, but the flaying aspect. Much like the possums, anyone pulling a knife on me had best use it quickly, because I react badly and violently.

My dad took me to see "Dawn of the Dead" when I was 9. He didn;t know how bad it was gonna be. I was awake all night with nightmares that I was trapped in my house or school and the whole world was blanketed in the walking flesh-eating dead.

I had frequent nightmares until I was 14. I still have one about every three months or so, and when I wake up I have to turn on all the outside lights and check all the locks on the doors and windows.
Sometimes in dark, open spaces I look around and get freaked out.

I had a recurring dream that I was that person for years. I still think that being buried alive remains my greatest fear. That, and being stranded on spider island, of course.

Phobia
02-17-2007, 07:11 PM
Is your fear that they will just fall out someday, Mr. Phobia? Or is it that some brainsick tooth fairy will come during the night and remove them?

I've never heard of this particular fear.

Falling out. I suspect it has much to do with the fact that my grandmother had upper and lower falsies which she was not shy about showing during my developmental years and combined with a 15 year copenhagen habit.

Hmmm. That is fearsome, Mr. Phobia. I'm beginning to worry about it, too.

Personally, I think it's a little rude for a person to take out their dentures in public. Especially in front of impressionable children. Sounds like something Britney Spears would do. I had a grandfather who did that, too. I liked him, but he was a little spooky sometimes.

I have a strange fear of revolving doors. I go through them but I am very cautious. It would be terrible getting caught up in one.

Anybody here have any latent anxiety associated with the prospect of intelligent but malicious slime coming into your room through the windows or the crack under the door?

I have a fear of losing all my teeth. I have frequent nightmares where that happens too.

I dated a girl once that had a really bad trip on mushrooms where she was convinced that her teeth had fallen out (during the trip). She had weird teeth issues ever after.

Dentists and Heights.

I completely believe what Luv posted about childhood and the mind. The dentist fear is from when I was a little kid.
I think it was the Thriller video that did it to me. Werewolves and dancing zombies. That might also explain why Michael Jackson scares me.

I'd be more worried if Michael Jackson didn't scare you.

My dentist fear is because a dentist slapped me and covered my mouth with his hand when I was around 5. This also explains why I freak out when my mouth/head is covered.

No, not Phil, but what is your worst fear or something that bothers you alot. Either as a child growing up or even as an adult in todays world ?
Examples .......
Eye drops ?
Dental work ?
Dogs ?
Cats ?
Clowns ?
Heights ?
Dental work. Up until last week anyway when I met the new dental hygienist. OMG! :drool: You know how they say people get addicted to plastic surgery, that's me and my teeth. Now I have to find a way to get to the dentist much more frequently...She looks like Eva Longoria+Mischa Barton + 10 pounds in all the right places. Not that I am obsessed or anything.

Clowns are now in the #1 spot. Friggin nutjobs...

I have no idea why it just gives me the willies.

As for more mainstream fears? Drowning probably tops my list, followed by pretty much any stinging insect.

Never had an issue with spiders tho :shrug:

I cant stand that either, not sure why, guess it just feels dumb to be sitting there all alone. It feels kinda the same the few times i've went to a movie alone, lookin' like some sad sack who couldnt find a date or pal to go with.

Well, if there was intelligent but malevolent slime coming through your window or door crack, I'll bet you guys would get a case of the terrors.

You can't reason with that stuff.

Drowning.. Well, I guess suffocation of any type.. really gets to me is like in the movies, when somebody is trapped underwater, and they're struggling with some type of obstruction preventing them from getting to air.
Yeah, drowning would suck.

I am scared to death of sharks. Seeing sharks on TV or in an aquarium doesn't bother me but the thought of swimming in the ocean and getting bitten from a big fish fish gives me the cold sweats.

1- Height.
2- Shark infested waters.
3- (Somewhat) having my back to people when I'm doing something. I become totally inefficient in what I'm doing.

For years drowning kind of bothered me until i was involved in a real bad situation at the river. Since then I have developed a phobia of drowning. It doesn't really bother me to go swimming but just the thought of me drowning or someone else near my vicinity or a family member drowning really bothers me.
I was out for a sunday drive with the kids and stopped at a river access on the James River by Nixa. Heard screams for help, The situation was one guy and two little girls caught up in the current quite a ways from the bank screaming for help. One guy, already there, had jumped in and was swimming for them. I stripped down and went in too, he passed me on his way back with one little girl. I grabbed the other girl and swam back with her. Then I went back after the guy (their dad ) got out there and he was under, on my 3rd dive looking for him I grabbed the top of his head and yanked him towards the top. Got him turned over and started swimming back for the bank. I was spent. went under a couple times and ended up having to let go of him just so I didn't drown too. He didn't make it. I barely did. Both girls were ok. In the process of all this I had crushed a disc in my back and splintered a couple vertebrae on either side of the disc. So, like I said. The thought of drowning our especially one of my kids really really bothers me.

I can't step on cracks on the sidewalks, will even go into the grass to avoid areas that are full of cracks and no where to step. I also have had dreams of seeing an airplane crash since I was a little kid. The last dream of that nature, I had about 3 months ago only I was ON the plane. It's always been viewed seeing it crash not being on it. A new twist that increases my fear of flying which I have done several times but not enjoyed. Usually would drink a six pack before getting on a plane.

Yeah I guess that fits the mold. Wish I had his money and the women old Jack has gone through in his life. It would be interesting to know his phobias as I've always thought a lot of what he shows in film comes natural for him. Of course finding out the mother that raised you was really your sister had to come as a shock. He didn't know until later in his life did he? That one would sure bring on some issues.

The only thing that bugs me is snakes. The only good snake, is one that I just shot into about 100 pieces with one of my shotguns.

Standing at the top of a cliff and looking over got to me at one time, but I took up sky diving to take care of that issue.

I hear you brother. I'm not really scared of them, but I helped my Brother in law install some windows in this severe Whiskey Tango house with cockroaches all over it. Well anyway, I'm outside and I see a ****ing syringe half burried outside their house. I about freaked the **** out. When I was putting in the windows, I made damn sure I knew where I was relative to that damn thing. The last thing I wanted was a damn STD because I stepped on a crack whore's needle.

Sorry, I got sidetracked.

As for my phobias, it is probably asphyxiation. I have had a couple of really bad asthma attacks, and I'm fairly sure I wasn't all that close to death, but it is one scary damn feeling fighting to breathe only to fail no matter what you do. I have dreams about it occasionally, and it scares the shit out of me. Even when people get strangled or something on TV, my chest gets a little tight, and I get a little tense.

I guess on a lesser sense is slipping when I'm on top of something tall. I've been on a grain bin and on a couple roofs where I slipped and thought I was going over. I don't think that's a phobia though, rather just a lack of confidence in my balance, or being cautious of slippery surfaces.
