Do you fear something so bad that you try your best to not even think about it, let alone tell others about it for fear of having them take advantage of it?
If so, post it here!

Well, in that case, you'd really run from me... I'm a spider.
Ok, seriously, big spiders, snakes, certain dark spaces... I can handle heights if I know there's no way I could fall. Now, if I was to, say stand close to the edge of the roof of a 10 story building, that'd make me uneasy. However, if I found myself on the roof of the Sears building, and were to lay down, I could stick my head over the edge no problem. ...You know what I mean?

I know what you mean, it's the fact of safety. Same thing for me. Oh, and my phobias are Bees, wasps, anything that flies and can sting you. I hate wasps the most since they sting out of pleasure, whereas bees sting out of last-resort defence.
Suffocating is extremely uncomfortable, too....especially underwater. Just feeling your heart pounding and your head pulsing like a bomb about to explode is just, bleh. You can't control it.

Totally. I think the scariest height is somewhere around the roofline of a 2 story house. Especially if it's some big open area like a roof. When you're in a tree that high, there's branches and sh*t to hold on to.
The addition of wind will make it even more uneasy.
I think the scariest dream I can have is one that involves me free falling for some reason.
You read it! You can't unread it!
I honestly can't say I'm afraid of things like heights, spiders, bees, blood, etc. The one thing I fear the most is failure. Everything else is secondary do that.
i also have a fear of bees, wasps, and spiders.. and hallucinating.

Drowning/Suffocating: I hate the thought of not being able to breath, it's one of those things you can't really do anything about when it's happening to you...or you think you can't.
I'm also pretty freaked out of being stranded in the middle of the ocean. Not being able to see any land, or people around me, and knowing there's some of the creepiest creatures below me is just a scary thought.
None of these are really phobias, they're just regular fears.

Suffocation is another big one. I don't mind when someone pushes me into the water when just my body is in it, or none of my body is in it, but I hate when I'm coming up in the water and someone pushes me back down. That scares me a lot. I also can't stand being under a blanket with someone on top of it.
I also CANNOT STAND mice. I hate those little pieces of sh*t. I would hate for one of those things to touch my feet. Just the mere thought that one might be on the ground makes me wanna jump up on a bed.
I don't even mind being stung by yellow jackets or bees, but wasps' stings hurt like hell.
PM me for my AIM SN. Lurkers are a bitch.

That's why it's a phobia--there's really no reason for me to be that deathly afraid of them, I just am.
I used to have a fear of needles until I was in the hospital for a while. They would poke a needle in my arm every damn day and so I eventually became desensitized to needles. Actually, I just hated pointy things in general. I'd make me uneasy if I saw a knife lying on the table pointing toward me (i.e. the person across the table from me's knife). I'm no longer that paranoid of pointy objects, but I guess that's why I'm of bees and wasps--their stings are pointy objects. I guess that's one type of pointy object I never overcame my fear of, even though I've never been stung.
Oddly enough, I've never been afraid of heights, at least not beyond reason. I've never been that afraid of spiders either (although I'd probably be uncomfortable around the really big or really poisonous ones). I don't like snakes, though I've never seen one in the wild--I've seen ones in the pet store that aren't dangerous (like one that was hanging on a person's shoulders), and I found that being around it made me a bit uneasy, so I guess I have a phobia of snakes. I don't know though, I haven't had enough contact with snakes to really say.
Here's a weird phobia of mine: if I look up to the sky for too long, I start to become afraid of the sky. I don't know, I just see what a long, never-ending distance it is up there and I get this weird "falling" feeling. It's hard to explain... it's like I'm afraid I'm going to fall upward or something. I know that that'd never happen, but... it's just weird. It only happens when I look directly up for long periods of time, like if I'm looking at constellations or something. One time, it got so bad that even when I was looking forward, I was still uncomfortable just standing under the sky and I wanted so badly to have a roof over my head. Silly, I know.
I sort of avoid clowns too, but they don't freak me out or anything. It's more like a... well, a Stan reaction to the 'Cirque de Shuhblahre' clown.
