Whats your worst fear?

At school soon the girls have to have three needles for cervical cancer, I don't want cancer but I'm terrified of needles, I get really dizzy, I'm also deathly afraid of spiders I can't even look at pictures of them. I'm also scared of lobsters and lawnmowers.
So I was wondering what everyone elses fears are, anything kinda crazy?
Any tips to get over fears?

Most insects- especially bees, cockroaches and moths and big spiders
I also fear talking on the phone- I get so scared I'm going to say something wrong (for ages I'd almost always refuse to speak to my relatives who live in Europe as I didn't know what to say to them, I speak to them now but I get out of it if I can. I do speak to my parents and close friends on the phone though)

I'm scared of fat ankles. And those pillows that feel like fat ankles. They make me fret and feel sick.

oooh ooooh! I have a story to tell about how K@ti hates spiders- we had to do a project on insects in grade 8 and me and K@ti were doing milipedes and finding a book on them in the library and there was one with a picture of a big tarantula on the front and as soon as K@ti saw it she screamed and ran off and then the librarian came over and told ME off! hmmph!

I want needles to stop me getting cervical cancer!!!!!

I'm scared of wasps and mosquitos, wasps more so. I'm also scared of fire, strong winds, fire AND strong winds and rape (not very pleasent but that's why I'm scared! I don't think like what if it happens all the time it's just a horrible thing and so obviously don't want it to happen to me!), unwanted pregnancy, I'm also a bit scared of hot oil, like when you're frying with it, it spits!

The worst of those things is wasps and unwanted pregnancy.

oh that's reminded me, it's not really a fear but I get really bad anxiety/paranoia in pupblic and in a compact space, I have a nervous twitch thing going on were I constantly itch my nose! In canteens/resturants, cinemas, the street, a queue, a shop etc etc it started in high school and won't go away. It's not about the way I look I'm fine with myself I just get scared incase people laugh at me for some reason or another.

A canteen in England is a cafeteria in america? Refectory? um. um. what other names for canteens are there?

Also i'm scared of eating junk food in public. I'm scared of eating in public in general but if I've got a chocolate bar I have to put it in my pocket if I see people. I am nuts.

I'm scared of people for the most part. It isn't like I am anthropophobic or anything just new people and new situations give me a lot of anxiety.

I'm TERRIFIED of needles, to the point where if I see a picture I shout out and do weird comfort things like rubbing my hands together and scratching my arm (which probably makes me look like a drug addict).

I also have a massive phobia of tapeworms. I can't STAND the things. I always think I have one.

And it's not so much a fear, but I hate people I don't know/like/trust touching...umm it's not exactly my shoulder, kinda between my shoulder and my neck. It's my kinda test of whether I trust someone; if they can touch me there without me flinching and feeling sick, they're okay

Bistro! HA. That's so wonderful.

Maybe I'm being cynical in my assumption that it's not a bistro at all.
