These Disturbing Phobias Make Life For Their Sufferers A Waking Nightmare

List Rules
Vote up the phobia that's giving you phobophobia - the fear of catching phobias.

Everyone is afraid of something, whether it be spiders, snakes, or public speaking. Such fears are, however, quite common. Meanwhile there are a plethora of little-known phobias that make the lives of those who are unfortunate enough to have them absolute hell. The worst phobias are fears of things so common, avoiding them is near impossible. Then again, some of the scariest phobias are ones almost everyone has to some degree. The very fears horror movies prey on over and over again.

The most disturbing phobias make day to day life nearly impossible for those afflicted. Certain things and situations others take for granted may be a frightening trigger to a phobia-riddled person, setting off a panic attack or keeping them from leaving their home. The next time you get nervous to speak in front of a crowd, just remember these lesser known phobias and count your blessings.
