I dont know why but it seems like whenever im outside at least one flying insect flies into me or by my ear, and that buzzing sound or the flapping of wings drives me insane.

You're a valuable asset to humanity, and it's likely that only you know this. I'm right here with you.

i have a fear of honey, or basically anything sticky (oils, maple syrup, sauce of any kind, etc.), touching my back. its actually really bad, i feel like crying or being sick even at the thought of it, because of this i am also scared of getting my back massaged. i would really love to know if anyone else has this fear???
another fairly normal one is i am scared of needles, but to more of an extreme extent, even just seeing one i start to shake and want to cry, ive only ever had 3 needles, all bloodtests, ive never had one of the ones where they actually put something in you (Imunisations) wich are the ones i an more scared of. its so bad that if i was about to die if i didnt have a needle i would actually have to think about wether to take the needle or not!
some others are- ghosts, things (mostly animals) coming out of the toilet, something being under my bed, the dark, moths and more.

Not exactly a phobia, more of a fear.
I'm just very uncomfortable when i'm around it... Strange i know but i guess it makes me think of ruined abandoned places (which are creepy as hell)

You wanna see some crazy afflicted dancing? All you have to do is catch me when a bee or wasp is near. I don't care what kind, even the ones that don't sting. I will do the Hustle, Harlem Shake, Two Step, Pop Lock... and Drop, Roger Rabbit, Electric Slide, Pretty Girl Rock, Super Man and any other crazy dance you can think of all.... at one time. I don't understand why I am so afraid of them. But even if I see one that lands on someone else, I freeze up and do whatever I can to not be confronted with it myself. For example, If I see one land on someone while I'm sitting ina car and they are outside of the car, I will just roll up the window and for some reason I can't warn them because my speech is frozen in terror. If one flies in the car, I would probably jump out while it's still rolling or stop in mid traffic to jump out of the car. I need some serious therapy.edit on 2-4-2011 by sixneuproele because: (no reason given)edit on 2-4-2011 by sixneuproele because: (no reason given)

Okay, my bizarre phobia is of stickers and tape. Not clean, new tape that I need to use, like to wrap gifts or hang something up, but old tape. I can't touch it. If I do, I feel like I can't get it off me, like I'm contaminated or something. People think it's funny, but it freaks me out. You know how some people can stick stickers on themselves or put them on other people and it's a funny thing to them? Well when they try to do it to me, they are so shocked and amused when I recoil in disgust and horror. I really don't know why I have the fear. Oh and about using new tape, I freak out if it gets stuck on me and I can't get it off in a hurry. I must use it carefully so I don't have an issue.
Just wanted to add, my brother has tortured me with my fear by sticking stuff on me or taunting me with the threat of it. Sometimes I wonder if he made me fear it and I don't remember it (maybe blocked memory or just too young to remember), or if he just used an existing fear to his advantage.
