Do you have a serious phobia of something other than your ex?

I was chatting with a friend yesterday who has a phobia of spiders. Arachnophobia is the fear of spiders. It's actually the oldest and most common phobia in the Western culture. I have a fear of many things and nowhere near calling it a phobia. I don’t have a phobia of anything other than my ex-girlfriend but other than that I'm pretty smooth sailing. It got me thinking when I saw how my friend handled the situation of having to be in the vicinity of spiders.

There are actually real physiological effects on these individuals and me as someone without a phobia have no idea what its like to feel this level of fear for something that at times is very harmless. She cited hot flushes and chills, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, almost like a choking sensation when she spots a spider. On top of that she’s sweating and of course trembling so no wonder we have to take it seriously when someone says I have a real phobia of XYZ. As Africans, we tend to laugh it off because we’re from the bush so to say although not really. We’re the Switzerland of Africa remember. So do you have a serious phobia of something other than your ex?
