Does anyone have this to an extreme?

It's a fear of small holes or repeated bumps. Wiki

An example would be this fungus.


My girlfriend is pretty bad with this stuff and sometimes gets sick if she sees something really bad. Anyone else have this? How do you get those images out of your head? Personally I'm okay with the majority of these images just not the ones that are shopped to look like disgusting problems on someones skin.

Also, please don't post any of the disgusting images you can find as it can be rude to people that have this fear and it's just plain gross.

Also if you're afraid don't google it.

Freaky, but not afraid.
That's hardly an odd phobia, compared to Medorthophobia.

Look it up.
It's funny.

it's not unusual for small children to be frightened by such innocuous things


there's literally nothing you could say to insult me.

you personally. i disregard everything you say about mid sentence. i only read you posts for the chance to insult you. though you lack furry qualities, you are on the same level as axel and ian to me. please leave the pedo jokes to more respectable and also comedic people. or do us all a favor and most some porn or something.

i am not mad, i am flabbergasted that you would think that i respect you enough, or don't disrespect you enough, to feel insulted by the diarrhea that you post. i award you no points and may god have mercy on your soul.

that was a pretty poorly executed diatribe. you should work on that.

and next time try to rip off something less transparent than billy madison.

it was a reference. sometimes when people want others to smile when they read your post (i don't want you to smile) they include a bit from a popular funny film so the reader is reminded of the humor and smiles. in your response to this, if you bother to write one (no sense making assumptions), try referencing happy gilmore. this will make people like you better, a lost cause if there ever was one.

snazz: yeah he is fine guy nowadays, but something about progdude makes me think he hates autistic people.

What does she think of Spongebob?

Or, I guess I should ask if she's scared of sponges in general? They seem to fit that description.

OH GOD, what about Swiss cheese?

I know people don't have control over their fears, but some phobias are just ****ing stupid.

but that's sort of the point. a phobia is ****ing stupid and the person with the phobia should recognize that (if you go by the DSM-IV diagnoses). but the fear is still real, and that's what is so troubling. how do you combat a fear that makes no sense at all?

admittedly people trivialize actual phobias by referring to less severe fears as phobias, to the point where i have to explain what being emetophobic means to people because they just interpret it as another simple fear. i don't know whether people with clinically significant trypophobia exist, but it's at least interesting to see things that creep people out that rationally should not. anyway the point i was trying to make is in the first paragraph, this is just a rant.

according to the 45 seconds of googling i did, trypophobia isn't recognized as a legitimate phobia...

what does it consist of? i mean, i know it's fear of vomiting, but how does it manifest itself?

I think people take phobias too seriously. I mean unless you're seriously mentally ill, I don't see someone being really afraid of a grouping of small holes. Maybe it makes OP's GF slightly uncomfortable, but afraid? What's the fear? Usually there's a rationale behind a fear. Being scared of the dark because you don't know what possible dangers there are, being afraid of heights because you could fall and get hurt. Danger. What's the danger behind this? What part of our instincts is this particular phobia contradicting?

She gets strong anxiety and really stresses out when someone near her is going to throw up. I drank too much once and was throwing up and she went like a few rooms down and wouldn't come near me and cried a little bit and was super nervous.

she's a bit better now than she used to be
My God, it's full of stars!
#34
that sucks for both of you when i'm sick and throwing up nothing makes me feel better than some water and a pretty girl running her fingers through my hair

also, does it affect her even when it's not around?

One of my brother's co workers has a phobia of cold cheese. It's actually a legit phobia apparently. So one day they put a keyboard at her desk which had several of the keys taken out and replaced with cold cheese. Here's the pic.
