When I was a young un (12 ish) me and me mates went to a place called Copenacre just outside Corsham. Part of the site was a quarry and great blocks of sandstone were piled on top of each other, leaving tunnels between them where a 12 year old could crawl.

Despite being close to bottling it I eventually joined my mates to join in the crawl. There were different tunnels going off in all directions and I eventually got disorientated and couldnt find my way out of the stony maze. Ever since Ive been absolutely petrified about going into small spaces. If Id been one of those Thai kids who had to go through those cave tunnels to get out Id still be down there now.

I worked at the civil service at Copenacre from 89 to 93.  The quarrys at Copenacre, Monks Park and Spring Quarry had a load of people working in them.  They were where storage of parts for Royal Naval ships were and also reputed to be where the government would go in case of a nuclear war.

Gephyrophobia.

The seven one is proper messed up. I start to get sweaty hands if we pass M32 going that way.

Fear of going under or over? or just them in general?

Sharing food/cutlery/crockery/mugs etc. Not even with the misses.

I'll share food/drinks with you, but you'll have to get your own plate or whatever and I'll give you some. Touch my plate, though, and I won't be happy.

Heights, mostly open ones - so going up ladders is fun to watch I imagine.  Even watching things on TV can send me into full sweaty palmed mode, in fact, just typing about it has.

Deep water - especially without a side in near view.

Flying - imagine my fun on Atlantic crossings!

Turophobia.

Other than that it was always heights that got me, or rather real or perceived danger of falling. I've battled it to a certain extent and can get up to the apex of a house on ladders.

Thinking about it, my claustrophobia is probably worse, I just don't ever really have to confront it.

Both times my Mrs was pregnant I was utterly convinced that she was going to die during childbirth. To the point where I would make detailed plans on how I would cope with bringing up kids on my own.

Had the snip last Friday so hopefully that's been put to bed now.

Ah ok. I do slightly but more so on those "three wire" type ones!

There was a narrow "bridge" I walked once, which was actually an aqueduct (well an irrigation channel to be anal) along a Levada in Madeira. It was either walk on the unrailed "path" one foot wide or get in the channel of water. I opted for the latter. Gorgeous views but I was shitting myself at several parts.

Everything mentioned so far is vertigo or adsd. We've all got one or the other somewhere in the makeup. Flick that lightswitch 10 times now...

Phobophobia.

Apart from that I fear nothing.
