Haha I’ve never heard of this phobia. You can't get close to pigeons? But they are so beautiful
It’s amazing how many different type of phobias exist, though.
I have arachnophobia, mostly of large spiders, such as huntsman spiders. Ugh. I’m already starting to freak a bit just mentioning them lol. Spiders, especially big ones, are so ugly. Can you imagine them crawling all over you? Ugh, makes my skin tingle.
Huntsman spiders are common here. If I see a huntsman, especially in the bedroom, it will take me a while to wind down before I can turn off the lights and go to sleep. I usually end up searching the room for possibly more and going on a cleaning frenzy. I often use essential oils, such as lemon Myrtle or peppermint. I will sprinkle a few drops onto a broom and wipe around the skirting boards and edge of the ceilings.
I’ve had other phobias, particularly social phobia. I overcame it, though, thankfully! But when I did have it, I struggled to even leave the sanctuary of my own house. I couldn't even go to the letterbox or take the bins out. That is how bad it was!
I’ve always had, and still have, claustrophobia. I would rank this phobia as the one of worst phobias that I have, even more than spiders. Spiders I can deal with better now—I don’t actually get too anxious anymore, as I learnt to put it into perspective and think about it differently.
But tight spaces? Heck no!
I also have a phobia of vomiting. I looked it up and it’s called Emetophobia. This may have something to do when I was a pup. I witnessed some violent and noisy vomiting moments, including blood, from other people, so it traumatized me.
Another phobia, which I would rank number one of all my phobias, is carcinophobia--the fear of developing cancer.
My spider phobia seems like nothing when I put it into perspective of the other phobias I have.
Gosh, this post just made me aware of how many phobias I have. Yowza
I will end this, as I need to get these phobias out of my head now. I can only imagine what type of phobias some other people have, especially of the things we take for granted each day. Here's a hilarious phobia for you... phobiaphobia--a phobia of phobias.
I Googled the weirdest phobias... it is comical haha. There is the fear of sunlight, fear of dancing, fear of anything... you name it!
