Soooo I'm afraid of water. Yes I know it's stupid and I'm screwed if where I live ever floods for some reason. But at the same time I'm not really afraid of the water itself. The closest thing I could find to my fear phobia wise is Aquaphobia or "The fear of drowning" But I'm not really afraid or drowning either I'm just afraid of large bodies of water but there is no phobia for that. bunneh icon17

Ahh phobias are complicated business ! I had an intense phobia of snakes, to the point where I had one episode where I had auditive hallucinations, but then I got therapy and I was told it was more of a fear of being tied up/ to choke as I am being eaten alive. Your fear of water might symbolyze something else ?

Possibly, but I don't think so. I'm not really afraid of anything when it comes to thinking about water, but whenever I do get close to a larger body of water I just kinda freak out of try to keep my distance. My mom told me that I hated having water anywhere near my head when I was a baby so it might have something to do with that, and while I'm sure other people have no problem with cold water I on the other hand do. For some reason I start to hyperventilate whenever I'm in cold water, it's very weird to me.

Now when it comes to proper phobias I really REALLY don't like spiders but I kinda got that from my mom when I was kid, I don't really like clowns or mannequins because I personally just find them down right creepy, and I have Monophobia which "is an acute fear of being alone and having to cope without a specific person, or perhaps any person, in close proximity." I got this shortly after having gone into home-schooling and moving away from my best friend, whom I also don't talk to as much since I left.

I suppose it would be more like fear of the unknown? People are afraid of bodies of water be cause they dont know what's down there if they cant see the bottom of the water.
