This was prompted by reading something on another forum but thought it might be interesting/funny/helpful to try here. Have you any phobias, strange or otherwise you want to share? I have a couple, both irrational and silly but owning up anyway. 1. Stinging nettles. I can't touch them since falling into a patch of them as a kid. I can barely handle them in the garden with gloves. Sad but true. 2. Dead animals. Fur or feathers, I can't touch a dead animal, yet I can handle the Sunday joint and prepared chickens and turkeys. Our poor cat snuffed it and she had to be removed on the end of a shovel such was my fear. Irrational and silly again but its there. This may go back to walking in on my Grandad in the garage just as he chopped the head off the chicken we were having for dinner. I was 5 and the chicken still running with blood gouting out of its neck has stayed with me forever. Anyone else?
