Scared Of This, Scared Of That, Scared Of The Other Thing Too, Phobias part two

“Fight Against Stupidity And Bureaucracy”

 .

Last week was the first installment in the list of phobias that afflict some unfortunate people. I think everyone, including me, was shocked both at the number of phobias and at the wide range of otherwise ‘normal’ things that people have developed an irrational and heightened fear of.

These lists may seem long, but they are actually my edited version of the information I have researched, so count yourselves lucky on that score!

In the ‘B’ list there are the more understandable or perhaps excusable things like Bacillophobia (fear of microbes) or Bacteriophobia (fear of bacteria), and in the ‘C’ list things like Cholerophobia (fear of anger or the fear of cholera) or Claustrophobia (fear of confined spaces), but apart from those it just gets silly. See for yourself.
