List of Phobias

Phobias means fear of something and there is no person in this world who does not posses a phobia. Some may have multiple phobias and some Phobias existed when we were small and have continued with us even today. I am one such example and I had phobia of height. ven though I am a 6 footer guy I am scared when I travel on top of a mountain or when I am on a water ride from top. The anxiety level increases. So what exactly are these phobias. It can be your fear for height, animals, darkness, sound, pain, abuse and a list of other things it never left us. Some would die a natural death and some would persists until we die. Personally, i have always been afraid of heights and that would make me an acrophobic.
