Unusual fears

I have several strange fears that I don't understand. One of them is if you turn gloves inside out, especially rubber or latex gloves, I can't look at them. In fact, before I put gloves on, if I look inside and see the finger holes, I can't put the glove on. My heartbeat skyrockets and I literally have to throw the glove away I can't look at it

so another similar fear is if you took a stuffed bear or a stuffed animal with a squeaker in it for a pet toy, the idea of cutting it open and getting the squeaker out just freaks me out I'm literally shivering here talking about it.

also words, there are some words that if people use them, it puts me in a strange place emotionally and I feel frustrated, vulnerable, and anxious if I hear these words. Thanks

I’m terrified of scorpions, taxidermy, female bodybuilder, rubber balloons, guns, and having my apartment being “too clean.” I also am terrified at the thought of getting a prostate exam because of what happened to me when I was in ninth grade during gym class which scarred me very badly for life and I am mostly afraid that I’ll react violently during the exam and refuse to get one only to end up getting cancer and dying because the disease wasn’t detected early enough to treat because I avoided getting the exam. I also was terrified of churches for a few years.

Legs on shrimps, prawns, lobsters, do me in. Just don't present them on a plate to me...!
And those fish, Rays, that when upside down you can see through them, it makes my bones quiver.
