Phobia is when you are scared of some form of everyday life. You get symptoms like dizziness, sweating, increased heart rate and many more. Common examples of simple phobias include:

  • animal phobias – such as dogs, spiders, snakes or rodents
  • environmental phobias – such as heights, deep water and germs
  • situational phobias – such as visiting the dentist or flying
  • bodily phobias – such as blood, vomit or having injections
  • sexual phobias – such as performance anxiety or the fear of getting a sexually transmitted disease.

A phobia is an overwhelming and debilitating fear of an object, place, situation, feeling or animal. Phobias are more pronounced than fears. They develop when a person has an exaggerated or unrealistic sense of danger about a situation or object.

I hate spiders myself and I don’t like touching them or killing them as someone catches them for me. This is an example of an phobia of something terrifying to me because you don’t know which ones are really deadly. You can be scared of ghosts most people are scared because when they see them they scream and run away. If they are worried about a health issue they can have a panic attack and sometimes be shaky from experience. This doesn’t help with people that have anxiety issues. Most common phobias are being scared of clowns, snow and others that people don’t like. I don’t know why but trains are mine when they are stuck.
