29 Astraphobia - fear of thunder and lightning

Thunder and lightning really scare me to death. Whenever I hear thunder from a loud and close distance, I feel like our house is gonna get hit by lightning and start a fire. - creed99

The only thing I'm scared of is thunder and lighting! I'm fine with everything else. I don't know what it is. I just can't stand it.

I only hate the loud sounds made by lightning. If it's far away, then I wouldn't be so scared but unless it comes dangerously close to make a thunder sound so yes! - Neonco31

I suffered from this since I was 5. I would not just crawl under my blanket. I would hyperventilate all night, sweat a lot, I would not know if there is a thunderstorm because we didn't have iPhones at that time. I would keep my little weather radio on ALL THE TIME. I still suffer from this phobia today. - SoloPotato

30 Catoptrophobia: fear of mirrors

One time in my mom's house. The lights in the bathroom were flickering on and off repeatedly. My mom said she was scared because she gets the feel of a ghost appearing in the sink mirror when the lights flash on again. The bathroom lights are now fixed but that's still spooky enough. - Neonco31

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...

When I was younger I was afraid I would see ghosts in mirrors... - Lucretia

Anyone for a glass of water?

I can not sleep without hiding under the covers of my bed. The thought of the undead just creeps me out - FrankP

Well, there have been news reports of ghosts appearing so it might be true ghosts exist but just don't try to frighten my gut - Neonco31

I have been afraid of ghosts and zombies ever since I was 6. The two are so closely related that they go to get her.

I don't believe in a higher being but believe in and am afraid of ghosts. - Lucretia
