#Blogtober17 Day 16 – Phobias

Day 16, now over half way, well done to all of you who have got this far xx

Today is all about phobias, another crazy moment as I don’t really have any phobias, I don’t like flies or wasps, spiders aren’t that great but I can pick them up in a glass and throw them outside. I detest the sound that brushes make, any kind, toothbrush, scrubbing brush, it makes my skin go goose pimpled and I get a shiver, so I have changed to an electric toothbrush and I always leave the tap running if the children are stood next to me brushing, so that I can’t hear the scrubbing sound, I NEVER use a scrubbing brush, so that’s no longer a problem.

I do find phobias fascinating, how something can create such a panic for one person and not another, so here are the five weirdest phobias I could find, I apologise if you have any of these xx

Genuphobia – The fear of knees, so i’m not sure what happens when they see people with shorts or skirts on!

Sinistrophobia – afraid of things to your left side or just left-handed things (and people) in general. This would be awkward in our house as Neva is left handed!

Porphyrophobia – Fear of the colour purple, this could definitely be a problem in our house as its the colour my mother in law always wears!

Consecotaleophobia – No chinese restaurants for you as its a fear of chopsticks!

and finally…

Peladophobia – A fear of bald people

Do you have any strange or unusual phobias ?

    I don’t have any phobias either and so chose 10 funny ones that I found, they are different to yours, there must be 100s out there!

    I have a fair few, but one really really odd one. I have known people with a phobia of buttons though. Mine’s not quite as weird as that!

    They are really strange phobias…
    I have a few fears but I wouldn’t call them phobias…x

    Oh my word, I thought I was the only person who hated that scrubbing sound! The worst is a clothes brush, can’t stand it!! I am VERY arachnophobic, used to have a lot of other fears too but luckily they’re fading as I get older.

    I don’t really have any phobias either – I really don’t like people playing with balloons but that’s about it really!
