Botanophobia: the fear of plants

I didn't know there was a word for this (though I guess I should have, every other phobia has a name). I've always called it herbiphobia. I have a self-diagnosed mild case, and due to my immersion therapy I now have some rather nice gardens.

Almost everyone has at least one phobia, including me. I have a slight, self-diagnosed case of clourophobia: the fear of clowns.

(just something about them, i find extremely creepy)

I actually have a mild fear of a mechanical Santa Claus that they place outside one children's clothing shop in winter time in my hometown. :o

That doesn't drive me crazy... I usually read books backwards, anyways...

How about:

Pteronophobia- Fear of being tickled by feathers.

Geliophobia- Fear of laughter.

Levophobia- Fear of things to the left side of the body.

I have a fear of spoilers. If a commercial for Heroes or Lost comes on I do everything I can to not hear or see any of it :P

I'm not looking it up to see if it actually exists so I'll just call it: spoilerophobia
