Frightening Friday-Top 10 Phobias

Why a Top 10 list today? Because I'm cramming precious writing time into several hours due to other "stuff" going on. The Island (my novel in progress) is coming along nicely...

*I want to thank everyone for the response/support/shares to yesterdays post. It came from the heart!

So, we won't even go into the big words here, but I thought I'd share with you the top 10 phobias (in no particular order) courtesy of the National Institute of Mental Health.

1) Fear of heights

2) Fear of enclosed spaces

3) Fear of the dark

4) Fear of snakes or spiders

5) Fear of death

6) Fear of needles

7) Fear of thunder and lightning

8) Fear of disease and germs

9) Social phobia

10) Fear of clowns

My one phobia didn't make it to the Top 10. I'm terrified of butterflies.
Clearly--they are far scarier than any of these.

I don't mind clowns, actually (although the American Horror Story clown is quite creepy!) Butterflies though...

I fear butterflies, too! The very sight of one--be it in person or a picture--will wig me out to no end...
