I have a phobia of skeletons and Centipedes. I used to have a phobia of Scorpions and Spiders. So I bought Tarantulas and Scorpions to conquer my fear. I now own 10 Tarantulas and 2 Scorpions. But Centipedes and Skeletons and also Nemotode parasitic worms scare the hell out of me. I’ve also got a phobia of certain textures of clothes, certain materials. If I’m clothes shopping I have to feel the texture of clothes to make sure I can buy them. If I feel the wrong kind of texture, I feel light headed and nauseous. It’s weird I know!

I also had a fear of heights and lifts/ elevators... I hate enclosed spaces. I did try to conquer my fear of heights by abseiling 100 feet down a cliff. I did it, but I’m still scared of heights. Well no one can say I didn’t try. :unsure:
