Most of these are pretty rational except for maybe Hoos under the bed fear. For all I know he may have some freaky shit under that bed.

OK, here's an irrational fear. I used to be paranoid in HS that I had something stuck on my back and would reach around and feel just to make sure I didn't. What's weirder is that for some reason I was usually afraid that I had a maxi pad stuck there and I didn't even use maxi pads. Now that's irrational.

What's weirder is why would the maxi pad be on your back??

- falling off a cliff if I'm near it because something will compel me to go too close to the edge even if I'm nowhere near it and I have no intention to.

OK, I have this with subway trains. I'm afraid I'll jump in front for no reason. My friends and I named this fear of an uncontrollable destructive or ridiculous urge the Galfonic complex. See also being afraid you'll rip your clothes off and start screaming obscenities in church or somewhere else = inappropriate. Oh, just me?

dude i guarantee you i'm worse. one time i was playing basketball with a friend of mine and he told me i had a bee on my back, so i threw my shirt on the ground as fast as i could and ran. he was joking.
also when i would come home from school circa middle school, if there was a bee in the house i would stay at a friend's house until my mom got home, and refuse to come home unless it was dead. i'm afraid of dead bees too.

i used to have really bad abandonment issues in middle school... the worst was one day my mom dropped me off at my carpool's house and they didn't answer the door for like 1 minute (in the shower or something) so i started running down the gravel road after my moms, i lost my shoes and got blood blisters all on my feet and my mom didnt see me, then the carpool fam saw me as i was walking back up the road and just picked me up and we went on our day. shit was rly embarrassing

Funny, a similar situ (5th grade, had to chase my dog into the street barefoot, ended up with serious foot damage) led to my consistent fear of doing damage to my feet while walking barefoot.

I made myself get over it in high school by walking around barefoot for a semester, but it still crops up now and again.
