Angela (anj-neophyte) Basophobia or Basiphobia- Inability to stand. Fear of walking or falling. (Falling)
Bathmophobia- Fear of stairs or steep slopes. (Steep Slopes only)

My phobia of falling sometimes was thought as dear of heights but no, They're different. :)) I don't fear heights. I fear falling from them. :)))

I Always slip in the steep slopes and at home, our stairs are small. Always makes me fall. :(

So far, That's all. :))


message 3: by Lucy (new)

Lucy (VintageQueen) :D I should change, mine, since I'm not afraid of heights but like you, of falling from them.


message 4: by Angela (new)

Angela (anj-neophyte) Yea, That's why sometimes I hate The metal Overpass because I feel the vibration of the cars from below that i thought maybe it would collapse or something and I will fall.


message 5: by Lucy (new)

Lucy (VintageQueen) Hmm... yeah, I agree.


message 6: by Angela (new)

Angela (anj-neophyte) =) So Fear of Puppets, Why? :)


message 7: by Lucy (new)

Lucy (VintageQueen) I find them truly scary, fearing that they are going to move without their strings. *shudders*


message 8: by Angela (new)

Angela (anj-neophyte) Try Dolls. *creepy*


message 9: by Lucy (new)

Lucy (VintageQueen) Agh! I don't like dolls either.


message 10: by Angela (new)

Angela (anj-neophyte) I have a fear in sleeping and never waking up. :(

But I'm not afraid of dead bodies. :)


message 11: by Lucy (new)

Lucy (VintageQueen) Interesting. Me too.


message 12: by Angela (new)

Angela (anj-neophyte) Yea, It's my dead to open up bodies :))


message 13: by Lucy (new)

Lucy (VintageQueen) :D


message 14: by Angela (new)

Angela (anj-neophyte) Opps, Wrong words in there. It's supposed to be:

Yea, It's my dream to open up bodies :))


message 15: by Lucy (new)

Lucy (VintageQueen) Yeah, that makes more sense. :D So like a forensic scientist?


message 16: by Angela (new)

Angela (anj-neophyte) Hmm,like that. I want to be a Pathologist. Study of diseases


message 17: by Lucy (new)

Lucy (VintageQueen) Interesting choice. I'm actually sort of afraid of diseases.


message 18: by Angela (new)

Angela (anj-neophyte) Oh. Why? :) Sorry If I ask Why always. I'm currently studying Philosophy and we are in Faith and Reason ♥


♥ Innocent Lamb ~ Forever Reading ♥ - AKA Smarties (NotJustAnyOrdinaryGirl) | 17 comments Okay, so my fears are generally nonsense and whatever and most of them there is no reason as far as I can tell... but yeah. So here's the list:

Acrophobia- Fear of heights
Chiraptophobia- Fear of being touched (To a certain extent. I'm okay-ish with being touched now, but I always get this wierd sensation that is really uncomfortable)
Zoophobia - Fear of animals (I think)
Ophidiophobia- Fear of snakes. (As in crazy hysterical screaming/crying/running away on sight)
Arachnophobia (Ar-ak-no-phobia) – Fear of spiders (Yeah, crazy scared of spiders...)
Atychiphobia (At-i-kuh-phobia) –Fear of failure (Not too bad, but I'm scared of failing and getting nowhere in life)
Basophobia or Basiphobia- Fear of falling (I think it has something to do with my fear of heights)

Most of these are old and for some of them, I'm less scared now compared to now than if you were to have asked me last year. However, there are some fears that I will never be able to properly shake off. My fear of snakes and spiders being one of them. I'd included those because I'm showing absolutely to signs of being less scared of those compared to my general fear of animals. Whereas with my beights fear, I am fine with heights until we get to where I'm way up in the air in an aeroplane. Or if I'm looking directly down, I'll freak.


message 20: by Angela (new)

Angela (anj-neophyte) Atychiphobia (At-i-kuh-phobia) –Fear of failure

I find diseases are like strange things that crawl around in your body.


message 22: by Angela (new)

Angela (anj-neophyte) Oh, I agree. :) I want Cancer to be cured already!


message 23: by Lucy (new)

Lucy (VintageQueen) Same. My Pa, whom I loved dearly, died to cancer. :C It was so sad. Broke out hearts, especially since he was the fittest man I knew. He was blind too, so it made matters worse. I hope they find a cure very soon, so other people don't have to go through what I went through, with close relatives deceasing due to it.


message 24: by Angela (new)

message 33: by Lucy (new)
