CafeMom misscortez420 is afraid of the dark. Achluophobia. "There was a point in my life where I thought it was over, but it came back and I think it's worse. I'm guessing it's here for good. What's your biggest phobia?"

From the Stay At Home Moms group, the things CafeMoms fear most:

-- Water where it's not supposed to be. Tidal waves, even floods freak me out and make me want to hyperventilate. I can' even handle the thought of the ocean sometimes.

-- Coulrophobia, fear of clowns. I seriously have an asthma and panic attack if a clown gets near me.

-- Scorpions

-- Fish. I cannot stand the sight of them, smell, any of that. I won't buy them to cook, even though my hubby eats them.

-- Climacophobia, the fear of stairs. I know it sounds stupid, but I am so freaked out if it is more than 4 or 5 stairs. I am sure I will fall down them or that my son will.

-- Heights

-- Spiders

-- Camel crickets. I HATE camel crickets. They totally freak me out.

-- My head under the covers. I feel like I am suffocating.

-- Belly buttons. OMG I hate being anywhere near them. I cannot stand watching SO clean his out and I hate touching mine to clean it. I even have a hard time cleaning my kids'. For some reason I'm scared my finger will go right through to my stomach. Creeps me out just thinking about it.

What terrifies you?
