When I raked my brain for a post for this theme I thought about my fear of spiders, which is a phobia and called arachnophobia !
The idea came when this week I had watched a crime movie where a woman was killed with a tarantula ! These spiders are not dangerous for humans they only look ugly and disgusting at least for most of us.
The murderer who knew that his victim was suffering from arachnophobia had put a tarantula in her office and then had locked the door. He only had to wait until this charming beast showed up and did its effect. That's what happened. The woman pushed an awful scream fell on the floor and was dead. She had been literally scared to death and died of a heart attack. Almost the perfect crime, but little tarantula showed up and the investigators understood.
Maybe I wouldn't die, but certainly become hysterical ! I even run away from a mini spider which amuses Mr. G !
There are so many "A" phobias I really was surprised !
Agoraphobia- Fear of open spaces or of being in crowded, public places like markets. Fear of leaving a safe place. (I had an aunt who suffered from this and couldn't even go to her mail box !)
Ablutophobia- Fear of washing or bathing. (Not my case)
Aeroacrophobia- Fear of open high places. (That's me !)
Ailurophobia- Fear of cats. (Certainly not, I have four !)
Amathophobia- Fear of dust. (No, I don't even see dust)
Anthropophobia- Fear of people or society. (Not at all)
Ataxophobia- Fear of disorder or untidiness (same as with dust, I am blind)
and if you want absolutely know from which phobia you suffer just have a look here I am sure you will find one which suits you !
