This is going to sound silly compared to everyone else's phobias, but my greatest fear are bugs. I scream whenever I see them. I have a rule that food is not allowed inside bedrooms and you must eat on a plate for this very reason.

I have family who eat dinner on their beds or try to eat snacks on my couch and swipe the food off their chest onto the pillows. I can't believe it when I see it. This brings bugs. They do the same thing in their house and this is normal for them. I don't say anything to avoid being rude. I immediately clean after so bugs don't come.

For me it's spiders, ever since I got bitten by a Red Back spider in Australia.

Nuclear war.
Cockroaches.
Giant cockroaches created by the radiation left by said nuclear war.
Losing what's left of my hair.
Dying alone.
Dying of old age and realize life wasn't that good to begin with.
Not having internet to distract myself from my crappy life (I spent three years without internet due to some junkies stealing the telephone cables to sell the copper).
Women making fun of me.

I'm a coward, dude.

Since I became a Mother, my biggest fears involve something bad happening to either of them. For myself, just recently, the fear I will end up on my own forever is quite overwhelming.

This one is new to me, as my nephew is only about a month old:

Misshandling him and hurting him in the process.
My sister told me to raise him to my shoulder so he can burp, but i am terrified.
What if his head rolls to the side? What if i don't secure him enough?

I am okay with holding him in my hands when im sitting and he is sleeping or looking at me but anything that involves me holding him in any way that M I G H T have somethihng happen, im absolutely terrified. He slowly starts to support his head himself, so this one might become less of an issue with the weeks to come.
