I have like 700 friends on Facebook (yeah..I know. I'm AWESOME! [lies]), 73 followers on Twitter and 2 followers on StumbleUpon, yet one status everyday keeps me coming back, well, recently anyways. A friend of mine keeps posting all these phobias and the super long, and awkward, names for them. So, this, well obviously, has inspired me.

I don't really have a big fear. I'm slowing beginning to overcome my cynophobia aka fear of dogs. Yeah that's right...fear of dogs. According to the big wigs, it's a specific kind of fear and 36% of people have this fear! YOU ARE NOT ALONE! Just reading about the treatments and things has given me slight anxiety. It's a weird fear because I'm not really sure how I got it. I never got like 'attacked' or anything. Who knows why we even have fears....

SO these names...let me tell ya, some of them are pretty creative and some of these fears are like super nutso. (I wonder if there is a fear of the people with these fears because I think  I have that one). One from each letter of the alphabet:
