17 Somniphobia (Fear of Falling Asleep)

This can be somewhat understandable though, depending on situations. - LemonComputer

18 Arachnophobia (Fear of Spiders)

It's reasonable in places like Brazil and Australia, where it probably originated, so I wouldn't say Arachnophobia was all that weird. It wouldn't be reasonable in places like the UK, where spiders are harmless, but in tropical places, fearing spiders is rational. - PositronWildhawk

Call me a wimp, but I can't stand being around Spiders. Being afraid of bugs and Arachnids isn't even out of the ordinary when it comes to phobias either. - Rue

Me too, I'm afraid of spiders

How is this weird ITS MY WORST FEAR
