    I am in exactly the same boat as you - I was diagnosed with Generalised Anxiety Disorder 12 years ago. Apart from confined spaces, I hate getting stuck in traffic, not having a bottle of water with me wherever I go, tunnels, the list goes on. But the only way to remove fear is to face it. I am working on a program from NZ that is AMAZING. I have made so much progress. You can PM me if you are interested. You can recover from anxiety.

    I've seen someone fall through one of those drain grates and take a ~1 1/2inch cube of flesh/bone out of their shin a long time ago, been a bit wary of walking directly in the middle of them ever since.

    I've been to Jenolan Caves, it certainly isn't for the claustrophobic! Some parts of the caves can only be travelled through by sliding on your stomach through a hole, underneath 600 meters of solid rock...

    I have a severe needle phobia, tend to pass out when getting needles. Which caused a few problems since im a vet in training, I've managed to get to a stage where i can comfortably give animals injections as long as I dont stuff it up, the more times I have to attempt an injection the more i panic.

    Also have the totally weird fear of people poking my belly button, I have no idea why, but I never tell people because my lovely bf found out by accident recently and likes to torture me with it. Poking at me results in hysterical crying for ages while he laughs at me.

    Same! Except I dont pass out, I wish I did though. I go nuts!
    The last needle I had (A blood test) I lost it, I started screaming and crying I just wouldnt let the lady touch me and I ran out of the room screaming and starting running about the waiting room. The lady giving me the needle starting yelling at me and I remember her saying I am worse than her Autistic nephew, haha. I ran out into the street and just sat in the parking lot crying. That place refused to do my needle so a few weeks later my mum took me to another place. Same sort of thing happened and in the end (on our third visit) three people held a screaming me down while they did it.
    Its crazy! I havent had any vaccinations since I was 5 because I just cant do needles. I dont know why though, I mean they dont hurt.

    Also Tomatoes and cheese. I cant eat ANYTHING with them in it or I throw up. Its not the taste and I'm not allergic, I dont know. I just start gagging. Same as the smell or if I touch them. hahahah :)
    And guinee pigs. Wow theyre scary.
