Aichmophobia- Fear of needles or pointed objects. Haphephobia Apiphobia- Fear of bees. Xylophobia- 1 Fear of wooden objects. Orthophobia- Fear of property. I hope you'll find it an interesting, entertaining and, perhaps, educational read.
I'm fine when staying close to the coast, but I can't handle going too far ahead. I'm fine in pools or lakes, but I just can't go out in the ocean. Nyctophobia : One of the many names of the fear of the dark. It's not so much as I actually fear the dark, more than I'm afraid what's in it.
I'm not even sure if it counts, either - I'm only scared when it's half light as in just enough to distort everything I see. I start hallucinating eyes watching me or ominous noises or figures in the dark. MaskedHood: An article I read mentions that those vivid, memorable dreams the ones we both hate comes from REM sleep, which thankfully don't happen that often with me.
Got over it once discovered it was a lie, though. Wow those are some pretty weird phobias, o. O No offense, but just as it's in its definition, I find some of them kind of irrational. Like arachnophobia or oneirophobia. I love arachnids esp. O Go ahead and don't believe me, but my brain is weird and I am telling the truth. As for my fears? I can't say I have a phobia, but there are times I get irrationally dysfunctional.
Editorial Reviews. Review. If you are looking for a book that keeps you entertained and a little on the edge, then Scotophobia might just be the right choice for. Scotophobia - Fear of the Dark: In These Caves, Darkness Is Not All There Is to Fear eBook: Alan Donaldson: rapyzure.tk: Kindle Store.
Like, I get so scared I cannot concentrate over something and cannot think of anything else and start shaking, panting etc etc. But I am able to get out of it myself, because nobody else can and I am sure most here will agree. I think I may have Glossophobia, Nychthophobia and Olcophobia. But I actually found a way of working them out, so I am not sure they can be called phobias anymore? Glossophobia speaking in public I am a very shy person, but whenever I have to present something in front of an audience, I look as many of the people I can in the eyes.
It makes me feel like I intimidate them and being above the crowd gives me confidence and I am able to carry on. Nychthophobia fear of dark Believe it or not, I had a solution for this since I was a peppy year old crazed about wolves, as older members can confirm XD. Whenever I had to go in a dark room and I was scared, I thought "wolves are brave and your fear is stupid". This phrase is so damn stupid, but I swear to God, it still works even today.
I don't know what clicks in my brain, but it gives me so much courage and I am able to fight it and walk around in dark rooms. Olcophobia fear of crowds This developed when I got stuck yes, stuck in a crowd a couple of years ago. But I am able to fight it with aggressiveness. Another stupid-sounding thing. But people actually make me way when I look them all in the eye with a glare and walk in a determined pace. No one bumped into me in a long while XD. I get really weird about revealing my likes and dislikes to others.
Even with friends, sometimes I start thinking, "if you knew this or that about me you wouldn't like me anymore. Nyctophobia: It's the fear I have, like many others. I am ashamed to admit that I'm afraid of darkness, but is more the fear to be enveloped by it, because you don't know what might be in it. I wouldn't be able to walk at night without at least some well-lit areas. Oneirophobia: Same as Adept, I have some really weird dreams, and let me tell you that they are nothing which you could cope with. Alongside with Sleep Paralysis, dreaming of being chased by some butchers in an abandoned factory, during night, with an oil lantern only in your hand, because they want to use you for food isn't anyone's piece of cake.
And while at this dream, just imagine seeing butchered humans hanging on sticks, like they are being used for feeding and put there to be dried, and seeing flies all around, and actually feeling the smells. And that's just one of the many really screwed up things I see during my sleep.
Some people say that dreams reflect upon the upcoming reality I pray to God that that isn't coming anywhere to reality anytime soon!!! Basically, they're somehow all the things I hate combined into a horrendous state. If I'd have to face that situation in real-life, I am not sure of what I'd do Moonspell, thank you. Glossophobia - Fear of speaking in public or of trying to speak.
Actually i can pass out if i am watched by a big croud and ppl expect me to say something. I know I am far larger than they are, but that does nothing to lessen my fear of them, and no, I don't plan on getting over this phobia because I probably will never survive the methods of getting over said phobia. Nikos: Most of the scientific names of certain things have Greek names except for animals and plants, most of them are in Latin ;]. I am afraid of small places underground.
I went spelunking once as a kid and felt like I was suffocating and that the ground was going to crush me. The idea of going far below ground into a mine or a small cave has me taking big gulps of air as if to remind myself that I'm not actually in that situation. Since my fear has nothing to do with enclosed rooms, elevators, or anything above ground I wasn't sure or not if it is claustrophobia.
Research suggests that we are hardwired to be afraid of the dark not because it is dark but because of what it conceals. For our ancestors, that may have meant a hungry animal lurking outside the cave entrance. Today, if you are walking down a dark, deserted alley late at night and why would you be? Darkness leaves us vulnerable and at a disadvantage because we feel out of control in this environment. Similar to children, however, adults who are afraid of the dark often experience this feeling in bed at night, when their imaginations can run wild and leave them hypersensitive to every creak, squeak, and rustle in the night and doubts.
Did I lock the front door?
Are all the windows secure? Was that a footstep outside? The result can be a long, tense night and poor sleep or insomnia.
