I think I might have thermophobia (an irrational fear of heat and warm stuff like fire etc), and when I was a kid I used to be scared of balloons. After googling a little I've found out that fear is globophobia, but I think it's normal for children to have irrational fears.

Just generally discuss phobias here if you want.
Which phobias do you have or know someone who have?

Fear of death and fear of getting lost

Yeah, I kinda dislike the thought of dying too, but I try not to think about it too much.

That's exactly what I've been thinking inside my head sometime.

After another Google search, I think it's called hadephobia.

That phobia is called spheksophobia.

And still I've heard that we know more, scientifically, about space than what we know about the deep oceans.

The idea that there are hundreds of species in the deep oceans/rainforests/etc that we have yet to discover.

Quite fascinating.

Arachniphobia, but it's getting better.
Sphekophobia (fear of wasps, hornets, yellow-jackets and such)

And long ago when I was a little, LITTLE kid, my brother attached a Blacklight Bulb to his lamp, had it on for some time, and then told me to take it off the lamp, just to troll me. So I grabbed it with full palm and it burned the SHIT out of my hand...ever since then, I still have a lingering paranoia when I change a light bulb of getting burned if they had been on for a while. Knowing full-well that those particular blacklight bulbs get extra hot, I still flinch a little as I touch a light bulb that's been on.

I used to be afraid of balloons too when I was little.

I was only ever afraid of swallowing them and choking.

I have agoraphobia. People are out there in the world making names for themselves, but because I'm afraid of going outside, I just sit in my room, surf the internet, and masterbate. Spending life well.

I guess maelstroms and deep space. It would be scary as fuck to be floating out in space with your body just hanging out and looking at vast darkness.

I have the regular fear of heights and spiders

although truthfully I'm only afraid of spiders when I'm at home

when I'm with other people at day time I'm not as afraid

Well... isn't almost everyone a little scared of that. Like, if you turn on an oven and you are a little terrified of it burning down your house - so you turn it off.

We all have phobias. I have clasutorophipia like a lot of people have.... yeah, and as well as heights... I just hate heights!

Yes, almost everyone is a little scared of heat, probably because of experience. But when it's a phobia you're excessively scared of it. I feel uncomfortable with using matches or lighters, for example. I guess I might be just overly sensitive to heat.
