    I have a phobia of low, booming noises and low bass notes. Sorta like the noises you get when you strike a very bass-tuned gong, those made by the more booming church bells, or those you get when you strike the walls of a large, empty water tank. I cannot listen to the original mix of Queen's 'We Will Rock You' without being utterly terrified of the background beat, nor can I stand the notes on the extreme left of a piano keyboard being played. I also fear dizziness and heavy things that swing, especially wrecking balls. Never could tolerate being spun around, or riding on playground swings.

    I got a lot of hell (still do sometimes) for these phobias of mine, perhaps due to them being rather unusual/uncommon. People thought it was stupid, and heckled me plenty. That shit would not last long, though; I would make sure of it. But it still tore me up a lot to be misunderstood. Nothing I've tried thus far has helped solve my problem. How I wish I could be rid of these fears.

    Needles. Syringes. It's not the pain associated with them, the mere image of one just fills me with disgust.

    Eh. I mean, I'm sensibly fearful of lots of stuff, but nothing I'd call a phobia.

    Maybe dark water, like lakes or the ocean. That actually gets to me, like feeling it in the chest sorta way, but I still go swimming in it anyways.

    Heights, which is weird becuase flying doesn't bother me at all. So maybe it's more a fear of falling, but then again I want to go skydiving. So maybe it's actually that abrupt stop at the end that is followed by death that I fear.

    Heights. I like to go up to high places, but they also scare me.

    Dunno if it qualifies as a phobia, but spiders elicit a strong kill reflex in me. I just have to kill them bastages on sight.

    I have a similar reaction to centipedes.

    I'm kinda creeped out by clowns, spiders, heights and needles

    Back when I was younger I had a large spider creep into my cabin (it was summer camp) and basically scare the living daylights outta me.

    It depends. On a 'good day', I merely get an intense feeling of dread, and I have to immediately get the hell away from the source of my fear. On a 'bad day', I end up with tachycardia, hyperventilation and cannot summon the strength or force of will to even move; my mind fills with frightening images (typically grotesque, disembodied faces) and I'm reduced to tears. Can take me nearly a whole hour to recover.

    The only thing I'm afraid of is death. Needles? Bah, I can handle getting a shot. Making a speech? I might get nervous, but I'm not afraid to talk to a crowd.

    I just absolutely hate bugs and the telephone, but I'm not afraid of them.

    So... the only thing I fear is death.

    Enclosed areas, heights, spiders, and a little bit of a germ phobe.

    EDIT: Oh yeah, clowns. I hate clowns.
