Phobias – What are You Scared of?

We all have them. Phobias are a part of life, no matter how unpleasant they are. This morning while going about checking the news sources I follow online, I met up against one of my phobias. I have intense arachnophobia. Merely seeing a photo of a spider sends shivers along my spine. I saw a photo of a tarantula.  Actually, I saw a few photos. Now you might think, I am a coward, and admittedly I am in some respects.

Having had at least one or two incidents with spiders in my childhood, arachnids have scared me ever since. There are ways to combat phobias of course, and I am slowly working on overcoming another phobia of mine. Next spring I hope to be given the opportunity to rappel off of Sutton Place hotel. One, it is a great fund-raiser for Easter Seals. Beyond that, I want to face my fear of heights. Hopefully I can eradicate my fear of heights, but I’m still not so sure about my arachnophobia.

What do you think? What are some of your fears? I would love to hear from you.
