My phobia is blood. Jesus, I'll run out of the room the moment I see guts and organs flying out. However, it seems to be more gear towards reality stuff. Fictional stuff doesn't seem to "phase" me as much (unless it's guro, yeah I'm running for the hills).

Spiders. All of em. And any buzzing kind of bug. I always have had this problem thinking that if I don't squish a buzzing bug or normal spider, that it'll either crawl in my ear or in my bed. I have found a spider in my bed before so I live in constant fear of finding one reaching for anything between my bed and the wall.

Having a boyfriend and getting married. I was hurt and mistreated a lot. For instance: Not only I was bullied in school, I was maltreated by my stepdad - who even said mean things about my mom behind my back - and his younger neighbors, my dad got my now-stepmom pregnant when he and my mom were still in a relationship, my Auntie Yvette and Uncle CJ were getting into huge fights a lot, my other Uncle Freddie screamed at me on some occasions, my now-former Uncle not only cheated on my mom, he also tried to control me, and my now-former dA/Facebook friend tried to emotionally abuse and manipulate me especially by falsely accusing me of siding with the now-former mutual friend. One of my former classmates and his younger brother harassed me into being the former's girlfriend which I did not want to do.

I have a horrible fear of dogs/animals in general. When I was young in Honduras, we had two big dogs which protected our little farm of chickens, goats, and rabbits. One night I had to use the bathroom and go outside (We didn't exactly have a bathroom). When I came back, I was attacked by the male dog (They were trained to attack anyone who enters my grandma's farm.) in the middle of the night. I didn't even see it coming but it bit down on the back of my leg and pulled me to the floor, shaking me like a doll.

My mom and grandma had to get him off of me. I never felt so scared in my entire life but I also know where I stand on the food chain. The next morning, the dog acted like nothing happened and returned to his friendly nature. I don't blame the dog because he was trained to attack but I never ever went near dogs, or any animal, ever again. My mom was worried that the dog got rabies, since he never got vaccinated. Luckily he didn't have rabies. I know not to mess with animals but I am not scared to attack them if I am attacked. I literally freeze when I see a dog, specifically big ones.
