Weird Phobias Many People Don’t Know Exist

Weird phobias can vary from very common to extremely rare. I will be discussing some unusually irrational fears.

Everyone has something that makes there stomach knot, hair rise, and toes curl however a small amount of people are repulsed and horrified of things that most would consider absurd.

For these people everyday life can become very difficult to deal with when they know they have to face something so terrifying to them others would see minuscule.

The purpose of this article is to open awareness to these problems that plague people and to guide those who do have these and others types of anxiety disorders they are not alone and help is available.

I will list some phobias and talk a little about each in detail:

Pseudodysphagia-

Simply put the unprovoked fear of choking, to the point where swallowing becomes very uncomfortable and even terrifying for no rational reason. Just thinking about this normal body function can induce panic attacks. This can be problematic when people suffering form this will not eat. There are other medical problems that can make it painful or fearful to swallow so it is important to see a doctor, so they can make sure the cause is not another serous problems.

Kinemortophobia-

The fear of the living dead or “zombies”. This might sound like a weird phobia but is a more common phobia then most people realize. This is mainly due to the fact that horror movies and voodoo legends are surrounded by tails of the undead roaming the earth. Most people with this fear are not taken serous. Like any other type of anxiety, if the mental stress makes it hard to concentrate or too difficult to live life like you once did do not be ashamed or embarrassed to seek help.

Coprophobia-

A very peculiar dread of feces. Understandably majority of people do not enjoy touching, smelling or being around feces. However people with the fear of feces avoid any situation involving excrement, including going to the bathroom, which can cause serous problems.

Trypophobia

A fear of small holes such as sponges, wasp nest, cereal, and any other object with small holes in it. Now this is not an official phobia, that does not make the fear unrealistic. Holes aren’t the only things trypophobia consist of. It may also included bubbles, warts, buttons and various small round objects. This is rarely talked about so the awareness is low.
