Phobia’s  just the mention of Phobia’s makes me queezy

I worked with a man in Paris TN who would freak out if he heard Velcro ripping.  A man I worked with in Louisiana told me he was afraid of Spiders but I didn’t really believe him until one day when I killed a very large spider in the station and showed him the dead bug   Donald who stood 6ft 4 almost passed out and I thought I was going to have to clean up more than just spider guts.

I have several friends who are scared of needles.  One here at radio station ( no name will be given to protect the not so innocent)  gets quezzy just thinking about them so I  just had to tell  him about a surgery I had in  2001 and to get the I.V. in took 11 tries!   He got pale and almost fainted. I shouldn’t laugh… but I did.

So if you want to laugh at me I do have one major Phobia, I am Claustaphobic.  The fear of enclosed spaces.  While in the boy scouts on a camping trip I fell asleep in a sleeping bag but when I woke up the bag was ripped at the seams where my legs kicked so hard I broke through the zipper.  I cannot sleep if the sheets are tucked in, if I try ripped sheets usually happen

But my main phobia is Dietaphobia.  The fear of eating healthy!  No not really but the thought of starting a diet does kind of freak me out.   But I try and try again not just for the weight loss but a change of eating habits.  I do eat a little healthier that when I was young and my family will be surprised  about me eating vegetables.    Baby spinach is the bomb in an omelet (No cheese)..  At a buffet I tried baby Bok Choy and loved it so much I went back for 2nd and 3rds.

So I do try…  but then  dietaphobia hits and it time to become a Junk food junkie again.
