I don't think I have any severe or medical phobias as such but certainly some things make me very uncomfortable. I don't have a good head for heights and an even worse one for motion and distance perception - I have never been on a rollercoaster in my life. I find certain things can be frightening, for instance walking in a crowd, telephoning people, but I wouldn't describe it as a phobia given that it is not a constant thing and I can overcome it.
You don't have to be dyspraxic to be exeptional

But it helps!

Formidophobia - fear of scarecrows
Sciophobia - fear of shadows
Vacansopapurosophobia - fear of blank paper (I'm a writer)
Aquaphobia - fear of deep water
and also possibly ... Didaskaleinophobia - fear of going to school

I have suffered a lot because of stress and phobias. Later my friend advised me to try Hypnosis After trying hypnosis I found a good improvement in my self confidence and self control.

I could of sworn I'd posted on this thread already.

The dark (I don't mind slightly dark, but pitch black... So I normally sleep with my bedroom door slightly open, and the landing light on), and heights.

Up until a few years ago, swimming was also on that list (mainly because I couldn't).

falling, but I don't mind rollercoasters but only if someone is with me.
Balls hitting me, due to me thinking they are going to fall closer than they do.
Lift doors closing on me.

also flying..its not a phobia i just get really bad aeroplane sickness. even the idea of flying makes me sick, its really bad. We didn't have a flight for like 3 hours and i was sick while i was still on the ground, and i'm sick even before i go to the airport. I think its cause i'm terrified and i know i will be sick so i am. I get myself so worked up about it, but luckily i have been prescribed some drugs that make me sleepy and are like antisickness travel tablets and yea :-). I have managed to go on six flights within the last year without being sick due to these tablets. See if a aeroplane is on TV i wretch, i dunno what it is. :L but i know its terrible!.

Doctors, dentists, nurses, hospitals, medicine, needles, blood, heart rate monitors, illness, hypnosis, snakes, bats, people in masks, real Christmas trees, metal detectors/ scanners at airports.
And I can't find a reason for any of them, apart from illness which is obviously dangerous.
