LadyScozz Report 14 Jan 2013 21:21

I freak out if I get in the middle of a crowd! I have a panic attack if I think I can't get out (sort of like claustrophobia I suppose)

I don't like spiders!!!

two friends get totally freaked out by moths & butterflies.

spiders! shudder!

I was driving home one night, in a downpour, big hairy spider crawled across the dashboard.......... so I got out and stood in the rain!

A stranger stopped, asked if I had car trouble; I felt a right idiot saying there was a spider in the car! He saw the spider (HUGE!) and said he wasn't scared of it (a huntsman, not venomous) so the man suggested I drive his car and he would follow me! I had an old rustbucket & he had a swanky Jaguar. He could have been a maniac, but I didn't care, I wasn't getting in my car with Boris The Spider.

Fireworks, cap guns, balloons, thunder. Anything that goes bang!


supercrutch Report 14 Jan 2013 21:50

Attics, balloons, any metal ducting overhead and yes the 8 legged wotsits!



SueMaid Report 14 Jan 2013 21:52

I love birds but can't abide being in a room when someone lets their budgerigar or canary out. I get panicky if I think it's going to land on me :-( I'm not at all frightened of wild birds but when we had an aviary I couldn't go inside it.

I hate spiral staircases especially in old house and buildings, stone ones like the one in York Minster, also ski lifts the ones you sit in.

Same as Linda !! :-0 :-0 :-0 :-0

hate anything with a tail that darts around , throw back to when I was a kid and we had problems with mice one time . could hear em scampering over head and was petrified they would come down the Victorian fireplace into the bedroom and get on me in bed

Makes me run cold even now thinking about it


supercrutch Report 14 Jan 2013 22:21

I cannot go near an open loft hatch nor will I sleep in a room where there is a closed one. If I find the loo is situated where there is overhead ducting I am off out of there no matter how desperate I am :-(
