What is everyones Phobias and do you know how you got them? Mine is Araknaphobia. I don't like them in the room, outside the room i don't like the fact that i can hear them skipping across my walls at 3am! ><!!! So yeah, i've got it bad, they put me into tears cause they scare me so much, and it's driving my mum crazy cause i won't even catch them... And i think it started when my brother played 'guess which hand the spider is in' when i was a kid, i just happened to pick the one with the spider in it. I almost had a fear of going down the stairs (i dunno if thats a phobia) a few years ago, i lost my footing and slipped down them, hurt my back and nearly broke my arm, i went back up to go back on the com and a bit later i wanted something to eat. I stood at the top of the stairs and it seemed to grow longer...but i forced myself down them, yay for me!
