20 Of The Most Bizarre Yet Genuine Fears People Have

Fear is completely normal. Fear keeps us alive.
However, when a rational fear becomes an irrational phobia, especially over something non-threatening or mundane it can be debilitating. Even worse, it can be hard to accept or understand for the people around them.
The following, despite how seemingly un-real, are all real phobias that people suffer from everyday.


1. Aibohphobia

Aibohphobia is the fear of palindromes (words that are spelled the same backwards and forwards). Ironically, aibohphobia is a palindrome in itself.

2. Ablutophobia

Ablutophobia is the fear of bathing.

3. Hylophobia


Hylophobia is the fear of wood, trees, and forests.
