Wow! Reading this thread, I see that the majority of phobias are from spiders or flying inscets. I sort of developed a slight phobia of spiders, but
only if I see them in my bedroom. (I have to kill them right away!) This is because one night while sleeping, one bit me on the rear (ouch!). They
dont bother me if I see them anywhere else, and I will even capture them if I find them anywhere else in the house and then let them go outside.
(strange I know )
I also have a strange water phobia. I love to swim, but I absolutely will not swim in water over 7ft deep. (Unless there is a lifejacket involved) I
am pretty sure this comes from two experiences of mine. The first one is re-occuring dreams of me playing on the beach as a boy of about 4-5. I
looked up because the sun suddenly went away. When I did, I sa there was a huge wave that seemed to stretch from one end of the beach to another, and
it was 1000ft high. I knew that there was no way I could run so I just sat there until it crashed over me. I always woke up the moment of impact.(I
always found this dream strange because I am female)
The other experience was me actually drowning when I fell into a pool at age 5. Since then I have gotten over my initial fear of water, but not of
deep water, which is quite wierd because I can swim pretty well.
