erm, mine is almost heights, but I'm fine when I am on a mountain, it's more that if I'm on a building, I think the floor will collapse under me...

I have Vertigo. Whenever I climb higher than 2 meters my legs start shaking and feel weak, I also get dizzy.
One time I climbed on the roof of a building (3 story high) and my legs became weak and I had to crawl like a lizard to look down. Then it took me 10 minutes to gather the courage to climb down.
I also have arachnophobia. I HATE SPIDERS!!!
Since I live in the US I keep seeing big ones! Some are bigger than an I-phone 4!
Every time I mow my lawn I see 25 crawling away. My house is surrounded by Brown Recluses!
I see their web often in dark corners of my house so I destroy them right away (wearing gloves).
I keep wondering when one will crawl into my bed and bite me!!!!
:O

I have a phobia of going long-distances at night, especially in a busy city.

Nyctophobia=  Extreme fear of the dark.
I'm surprised nobody has mentioned it yet. I wouldn't say i have it but i'm not really scared of the dark; just what's in it. 0_0 (2spooky4me)

I would have to say my worst fears are mummies. Pharaohphobia I believe it's called. When I was in fifth grade our teacher took us to a museum that had a special exhibit on mummies and most of them were unwrapped. That coupled with the fact that everyone got to take home their own complimentary poster!! of one of the unwrapped mummies...

I'm curious...why are you scared of mummies to the point of a phobia?

I've got this fear of heights; which is strange because I like climbing things like tress, cliff-faces and mountains. However, when it comes to man-made structures (i.e. skyscrapers) well: I get shudders just looking up at them, especially if I'm right at the base of it. Like, when I climbed the Eiffel tower, I refused to take the lift, I could only go up by taking the stairs. And when I got to the second level the height freaked me out a bit so I didn't want to go to the top, which was much higher. And just looking upwards towards the top gave me shudders. Funnily enough, I've always fantasised that if I ever wanted to kill myself I'd do it by jumping from a height.

On a side note; does anyone else occasionally dream that they're falling off a cliff or from a plane, and wake up spasming?

I think I might've seen that, is it the one in which that lady accidentally swallows giant spider eggs and has her stomach explode as they're running to safety? Wait no that's the original verison of Journey to the center of the earth. I still think I might've seen that other one though...

wouldn't say i have it but i'm not really scared of the dark; just what's in it.

EXACTLY!! *waves hands around*
