Id like to tell you about my phobias, they are a bit weird but I think that reflects the concept of "phobia" especially specific phobias. Specific phobias are defined as a persistant or unreasonable fear of an object, situation or the anticipation of these things. I suffer from aerophobia (fear of flying) which I think is quite normal but then things get weird. I also suffer from bananaphobia (fear of bananas) I cannot watch anyone eat a banana or eat anything banana related myself, and the last one I suffer from Kinemortophobia (fear of the undead/zombies) sometimes in the dead of night I wake up and have the unrational idea that there may be zombies on the landing, lets take a minute because I know this is going to sound bad.. but the only way I can get back to sleep is to wake up my wife and ask her to check but my reasoning is : If she can help me get over my gamophobia then she can help me with this!
