Fears

ravens_02

So, I discovered, that since being “dive bombed” by a crow (3 times!) that I have developed

Corvidophobia. The fear of crows.

I guess if there’s a name for it, then I’m not the only one.  crow haters unite! 

Instead of feeling crazy, I decided to take it upon myself to look up a list of phobias and honestly, reading it helped so I had to share. And, interestingly, my current phobia, corvidophobia didn’t even make the cut, but Xanthophobia did? the fear of the color yellow?! Now, I wonder, did it make the cut because it sounds so cool to say xanthophobia?

My fear is actually a bit more difficult to pronounce and spell: cor-vi-do-phobia. Anyway, the point is to look at this list and be able to laugh at fear and how irrational it can become and paralyzing! And that almost anything can become a phobia.

Nevertheless, I don’t think that after today that I will become a corvidophile. That is the opposite. A crow lover or obsessor. Nope, don’t see that happening.
