But it's definitely serious, I just don't understand why I have it

It is an extremely rare disorder, but it is called potnonomicaphobia. This is the fear of any type of potato product. This comes from www.foodaq.com. It referrs to any fear of potatoes, but mostly applies to mashed.

I will add to mine....after this last year of insane weather we have had, I am now afraid of tornados. Having come close to almost experiencing a few this last year, they totally freak me out. Now everytime there is severe weather I start freaking out.

I love roller coasters, but I have a fear of heights, I can do it strapped in on a ride, but when I feel unsafe, I can't stand it. Whenever I walk up to Hollywood Rip, Ride, Rockit's station I have to stand on the left side of the stairs and stare directly at the floor or else I get dizzy.

+1. I hate them. I also have a fear of onions. Seems rather strange but I cannot stand the things.

I'm freaked out by...

1.Fire Alarms (Can't foucus when I know there's a Fire Drill)
3.Surgery (The idea of having someone cut into me freaks me out.)
4.Roller Coasters* (I'm trying to get over it. The scariest thing I've been on is ROAR at SFDK or Revolution at SFMM.)
5.Throwing Up (Why I'm afraid of roller coasters. I hate nausea, the stomach pains, and feeling like I can't breathe.)

*I'm going to West Coast Bash, and I'm kinda freaked out by what's on for morning ERT. But, i'm sure i'll do fine. :)
