30 Catoptrophobia: fear of mirrors

It's really scary. I sleep beside my dressing table which has a long mirror, enough to reflect me from waist up and over my head, and at night I always have to pass it to go the the bathroom or do anything else, and I try not to peek at the mirror cus sometimes I feel like there is something there, so I normally crawl in front of it to avoid being reflected in the mirror..

Oh god, I know I'm being irrational, but I always feel like I'm going to see someone else in the mirror, or that something's moving in the mirror out of the corner of my eye...

If you hear/read the story of bloody mary you'll NEVER want to go infront of the mirror in the dark. If you know you sleep in a room with mirrors DON'T Google bloody mary story. I heard about it in year 6 so I Googled it and now I am scared of getting up in the night I try and avoid looking at the dark mirror. Its not even funny you WILL REGRET READING IT.

I don't like to enjoy looking at my face in the mirror, especially when I'm smiling or making other strange looks. - creed99

40 Thalassophobia - the fear of the ocean

Drowning and sharks... not cool. - sreddy17

If the water isn't crystal clear with it shimmering because of the sun and my best friend isn't next to me... I get the chills. Water is beautiful but if you search up Real Scary Ocean Pics you will automatically get thalassophobia.

We had this life-saving test back in school when we had to dive around 4 meters in a pool to save the doll. I could only go down like a meter before absolutely out. It'seems a shame, I love the sea, and being on a boat, but this phobia has made it so much worse.

Every time I see the deep end, my stomach literally sinks. Nope..
