    I am deathly afraid of lakes and pigs. I don't know why, but pigs just really FREAK ME OUT and lakes- shudder. I really have no clue why. Guess that's why it's a phobia!

    Anyone else have unusual fears?

    I am afraid of frogs! They give me the heebie jeebies and I will avoid them at all costs! I can't explain why, but I have been afraid of them all my life. I don't go out after dark much during the summer because I am afraid I will run into one![​IMG]
    Crazy, huh?

    Roaches!! [​IMG]

    I know they don't bite or sting, but I can't go near by it, even when it's dead!
    Don't know why, never been attacked or anything [​IMG]

    I once worked with a person who was deathly afraid of birds. Any birds, even parakeets. She said their beaks and feet are so different than people's and couldn't stand even to look at them.
    I would personally prefere birds with beak over the birds with lips tho...[​IMG]

    My two great fears are snakes and dead people. Can't abide seeing a snake or a dead body. Ever since falling out of a tree back in middle school, I've been afraid of heights, but nothing like the extremes to which snakes and dead folks scare me...those are probably from too many bad horror movies lol

    Grandaddy Longlegs Spiders! They give me a flat @55ed runaway every single time I come across one of the nasty things. I think they are the major reason I left the South, with their gross long legs and their big ole pinto bean sized bodies, and how they cluster up over doorways and drop down on ya...yeeegh! Gave myself the shudders. I dont mind black widows, brown recluse, or any other type of critter, and I can even tolerate a mouse running up the sleeve of my shirt from the feed bin, into my bra and then jumping out,(true story, the neighbors heard the shrieks) but a dang grandaddy longlegs will make me move out of the country.

    Newspapers. I hate touching them, and I really hate the ink. My DH hates pairing socks.
