5 unusual phobias

Ichthyophobia- Fear of fish.
This really is one of my worst fears. I am literally TERRIFIED of those HORRID creatures. I cannot look at them, eat them or even say the word. I once went to the Nashville Zoo and went inside a building that had a HUGE aquarium on one wall, and I was up against the other wall hyperventilating. And in case you\'re wondering, yes I have been to the Tennessee Aquarium in Chattanooga, but I was very young. I will NEVER go back there. NEVER!!!

Chiraptophobia- Fear of being touched.
This is probably because I most likelyhave OCD. I just HATE the feeling of someone else skin on mine.

Doxophobia- Fear of expressing opinions or of receiving praise.
About this fear, for me it\'s only receiving praise, NOT expressing opinions. It\'s probably because I very rarely get any compliments. I try to avoid it when it comes to certain things.

Kenophobia - Fear of voids or empty spaces.
This is SOO annoying to have! But I deal with it by hanging up posters in my room, having lots of furniture, etc. Seriously, if you put me in an empty room (especially a large one), I\'ll start to panic. Even pictures of empty spaces freak me out. I have no idea howI managed to develop this phobia.
And finally:
Lilapsophobia- Fear of tornadoes and hurricanes.
The fear itself is not unusual, what people might find unusual is that I have it. Yes, I, the obsessed weather freak, is terrified of tornadoes. It all started in 1998 when I saw the damage from the F3 tornado that struck downtown Nashville. The fact that just plain wind could do that much damage horrified me. 12 years later and I still have a panic attack EVERY time we go under a tornado watch. This is definitely one of my biggest fears. Learning more about tornadoes, though, has lessened my fear somewhat. I guess it\'s because I know what\'s going on andone tend to fear the unknown, you know?
