#Blogtober17 Day 16 – Phobias

October 16, 2017Mandi Morrison

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!
