41 Thalassophobia - the fear of the ocean

There are a lot of things to be afraid of once you take a step in the ocean. Sure, you can ride waves with your fancy board, but then beneath you could be a Bullshark, Great White Shark or any predator. You could go out deep sea fishing with your huge boat but then you could hear an unnerving sound in the deep waters. You could go far in the waves but then you could lose your things to help you stay afloat as the waves pull you back and nobody can hear you scream. I have this fear. - Daviddv0601

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.

My dad died of drowning and I can't swim so I have a decent reason... - Lucretia

42 Aikmophobia - hypodermic needles

Needles are terrifying. Imagining getting a shot already scares me. My mom told me that I'm getting a shot to prevent cancer after I finished my final tests, which is less than a month later. I panicked when hearing that. I'm hoping that they will forget about it! - XxDarkStorm_PhoenixMothxX

I don't even fear death as mush as this... I never get shots for anything, I'd rather stick it out with ol' medicine than get stuck.

I had a blood test last year. Vomited on the nurse. Get freaked out just looking at a photo of an injection

Imagine watching that one Saw scene.
Ouch. - SmolBean

43 Ovinaphobia - fear of sheep

... Sheep completely terrify me! I can go near one, they just freak me out. Their eyes make them look like they come from hell!

Sheep are the devils pets. Even the name scares me

Creepy dreams and being chased twice

Absolutely terrifying, can’t be anywhere near them or see creepy photos of them without my heart rate rising!

44 Emetophobia - fear of vomiting

This is one of the worst phobias EVER! It is especially hard when you have horrible allergies, and you could get sick if you accidentally ate something that had what you are allergic to in it!

This is the WORST phobia I have...I don't want this at all! When someone throws up, or even me myself I just panic and don't know what to do! But I'm glad that there are people that has it, and understand what it's like!

The fear of vomiting (also seeing others vomit).

Once somebody was sick and I couldn't eat walk properly I was very scared! I refused to go back upstairs and was numb all afternoon this makes me scared of bathrooms 😷😷😷😷

47 Spheksophobia - Fear of Wasps

I Have A Phobia Of Wasps!

48 Mageirocophobia: fear of cooking

Well someone will be hungry

I'm not scared but I can't cook

49 Homophobia - fear of homosexuals or of homosexual relationships

The only reason I am nervous around homos is because I was sexually assaulted by one but I wouldn't let one bad experience make me judge everyone who wants to be happy with someone they love.

This is not a phobia, this is just being a terrible person with no soul.

These are just bad people. I like Steven Universe

A.k.a. the Westboro Nazi Church - Neonco31
