This is a question Irrational Fears

My mate Dan is afraid of turning his back on a flushing toilet. "It'll suck me in", he says. Can you beat him with your own true story of an irrational fear?

I'll try to explain, but it's tricky...
Apologies for the long ramble.

Thankfully, a rather unpleasant spate of panic attacks has ridden me of most of my fears (whomever the lady poster here who wrote a panic book, feel free to drop me a line should you wish), so feel free to have a anxiety disorder and banish most of your fears :P

Anyhoo, my only irrational fear is of big, submerged boulders. I moved to Sydney from the UK and went chugging about in on the crystal clear waters of the Hawksbury. Pootled into an inlet and I was looking out for obstructions when I realised I couldn't see the bottom but I could see a submerged boudler the size of a large car.

Terror rose into me like a wave, real primal stuff. Thankfully I managed to control it and was looking at it sideways in a WTF kinda way.
