I have phobia for snakes and some other extra ordinary creatures especially those usually shown on nat geo.The last time I saw a snake it was almost five years ago. It was in an game park, since then, that picture is still haunting me.I can't forget how huge it was, actually I think it was a cobra. I cannot wish to see any snake again.
Also, I have phobia for darkness. Darkness is really associated with a lot of dirty and evil stuff. I cannot stay in a dark place at all, I think I'll start crying because I could imagine all the evil things that might happen to me.Even back at home when lights go off and it's about sleeping time, I'll always sleep with the lamp on or a candle.
Some phobias can be controlled but others just come naturally and cannot be contolled. Despite of how many times have been told nothing usually happens when lights go off, I wouldn't believe because I already conceived the thought in my mind long time ago.
