I have emetophobia - fear of being sick (vomiting).

It absolutely terrifes me. For example - if someone in my family is sick I will not go into the same room as them for at least a week after they have been sick. I panic if I have to touch them! Fortunately, none of my family are sick very often so I don't worry about it much, but if someone is sick at school I absolutely freeze, go pale then run out of the room! I get soooo worried that I am going to be sick - even though I haven't been sick in ten years or more. I just absolutely hate the thought of it and everything to do with it. Even writing this is making me feel a bit panicky so I'm going to stop!! ph34r.gif

Btw, I also have daddylonglegsaphobia...

lol, nice name for that. Funnily enough, I never saw a Daddy Long Legs spider before. I've only seen crane flies which are usually mistakenly named after these. Perhaps that is what you fear?

I have a phobia of pigeons and of failure!

There's a phobia where you're scared of peanut butter becoming stuck to the roof of your mouth... can't remember the big full name for it though!
The race is long, and in the end it's only with yourself.

Cows are magnificent,
Cows I call them "moos",
And sometimes silly folk,
They call my moos "coos".

Oh, yeah, I hate daddy long legs! Or would it be legses? I don't know.

My brother's terrified of pigeons, hahaha... It's hilarious. They're probably more scared of him, because he's not a small boy.

He also hates clowns. I can kind of understand why. In the words of Carrie Bradshaw, "Nothing... is scarier than a clown."

Jelly Fish - they are transparent, wobbly, look as if they have faces, sting you, and people drop bricks in their faces and poke them with sticks.
