    Text - t 106 Jim Smallman 825 @jimsmallman Mar 2 WEIRD FEARS Let's share ours. Mine: hotel corridors with hanging light fittings. As a kid saw a tv show about poltergeists where they showed a corridor with lights swinging by themselves. In any similar corridor now, I run out of terror.

    Text - t 40 Jim Smallman 456 @jimsmallman Mar 2 ALSO In the first house I remember living in, my parents had a painting of a woman playing the lute. I frequently had nightmares about that painting. I swear the eyes followed me.

    Text - t 46 theo jones 372 @Bejiones99 Mar 2 Replying to @jimsmallman I have a crippling fear of goofy the dog. Cant explain it, have had recurring nightmares over it and was so scared when seeing a costume in disneyland paris that I had to calm down for like 30 minutes.

    Text - 397 Wendy 1.8K @WendyFNP Mar 2 Replying to@jimsmallman Can't sleep with the closet door open. Logically, I know there's nothing in there. I also don't want to wake up at 3 am and see glowing eyeballs

    Text - t80 Shannon Swezey 826 @wrasslesassle Mar 2 Replying to@jimsmallman As a kid, my grandma always used to tell me that if I stayed in the bath as it drained, my soul would get sucked through along with the water. Still wary over it.

    Text - t 45 426 Max Olesker @maxolesker Mar 2 Replying to @jimsmallman Throughout my childhood, for some as-yet-unearthed-by- therapy reason, my phobia was specifically this; being trapped in a lift. And then stabbed in the back with a machete. By Uma Thurman. I cannot emphasise how terrified this scenario made me feel.
