DAY 18 - Something That Makes You Feel Uncomfortable

So i'm totally freestyling with the blog topics now. I didn't feel like writing about what I crave because.. well, it's usually food.. so I decided to make a topic of my own. I know, i'm such a badass. ;)



WHAT MAKES ME FEEL UNCOMFORTABLE? 

Circles. Not just any circles... but textured circles in clusters/patterns. My gf's and I went to bubbletea house a while ago and funny enough, my glass had clustered circles on it (see picture above). It made drinking my bubbletea a little less enjoyable. In fact, just editing the photo above and having to look at it and even thinking about it is making me cringe and feel uncomfortable. Regular things I see that involve these scary circles are: the bubbles that are created when you wash your hands, dew on plants in the morning, fish scales (not circles but clustered, textured patterns), ... ahhhh!! okay, i need to end this post before i go crazy with discomfort. O.O 

Am i crazy or does anyone else have weird phobias and things that make them feel funny?

Okay, not to make you any more uncomfortable than you already are, but those circles in the bubble tea look like a nasty invasion of acne x_x

OMG I UNDERSTAND! Except for me the clusters need to be closer together...more "cluster-y."

Diana said...

I dont think I have Trypophobia- the fear of circular patterns but for certain things, it makes my skin feel itchy all over. I googled some pics and came across these tiny bumpes on leaves and if just looked so gross. I will spare you the image lol.

OMG KYM, I TOTALLY KNOW WHAT YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT!!

I didn't know a single other person who was this way! Before even reading what you wrote, I thought "eww, ugh, don't like this picture" and had to scroll down so I only saw the text. LOL

I especially DON'T LIKE when water is about to boil and all the bubbles are sitting on the bottom of the pot. Omg ewwww it just makes me get the heebie-geebies thinking about it. That's how much I don't like 'almost boiled' water. LOL I almost did a post about it one time, I actually took a picture of it because it bothered me so much and asked friends about if it looked gross to them and they'd give me (O__o) look. hahah

I'm glad I'm not alone! ^__^ hahah

izumi said...

haha OH i totally just read about this a few months ago on someone else's blog.. i forget whose.. unless you mentioned it before.

if it makes you feel better, i hate dings in walls/ceilings or dark spots on carpets that make me double take because i think it's an insect or spider on the wall/floor/where ever... -__-

MizzJ said...

Hmm I find it really uncomfortable when people don't blink enough haha Does that count as an actual fear or is that too normal? :P Like, their eyes are drying out right in front of you!!

Btw, never google ostrich skin handbags. You will freak.

Little Miss Tiara said...

totally understand it! omg those are yucky... i mean, those look really yucky... ew...

abby | ybba said...

really!? i think that looks awesome. but that's just me though. so, i'm guessing you don't like lava lamps? haha that was the first thing that popped in my head when you said circles.

Kalmo said...

Wah I didn't notice anything until I read your posts now I'm put off the circle picture too. XD My sister is like that, she hates looking at organic shapes like the details of fruits (orange slices) because the pattern/texture freaks her out if she looks too closely LOL.

Nashe^ said...

Hahaha... I was icky at the photo before I read your post! I have a total aversion to polka dots, especially if they're small dots and close together,.. I think it'll be worse if they're protruding! haha!

... daisy... said...

Ahahahahaha nice one! I can't find anything right now... I'm laughing! :-)

Pop Champagne said...

is it because they look like little pimples or zits or tumours that you just want to pop? lol i can totally see that!

RicAdeMus said...

How do you feel about tapioca pudding? I don't like it, but not because of the weird little round things.

I don't think I have any phobias of that nature. I don't like it when my wife flips through every TV channel and I catch a glimpse of something gross on one of the medical channels. Does that count? Certain creepy bugs can give me a shiver before I kill them, but I think that's normal.

My wife has an odd one. We have a perfectly useful potato peeler that she won't use. She said it makes her feel funny when she runs it over the spud, so she uses a paring knife instead.

Karen said...

I don't take much notice of bubbles.. but have tons of things that make me feel uncomfortable!! One thing is sitting in class behind someone who has white flecks/dandruff on the back of their shirt and collar area... I cringe and move my bag and everything to avoid!

Shop N' Chomp said...

You're not alone with the bubble thing! It reminds me of yucky pustules or something...LOL. =\

Trish said...

oh this is the first time i've heard of this!! i never knew people didn't like these things lol

& as for me, i dont think i have those sort of phobias, although i really hate being alone in public places specially new places i havent been to before, i think i get an almost panic attacks & start tearing up hahaha -___-

de.lizzy.cious said...

OMGD ME TOO.

Nikolett said...

You are a brave soul for having a picture of something that makes you feel uncomfortable! What about when people blow bubbles and they're all clustered together? :S Things that make feel funny ... the weird sounds of styrofoam, makes me cringe!! Miss youuuuuu <3

em.me.ma said...

haha aww, i would have to say i have really weird phobias. Can't really think of something right now but usually when someone cracks their knuckles i get shivvers down my spine; can't help realizing we both have 149 followers! what a coincident. love you blog:)

ko0ty said...

I hate circles too!! It's called "trypophobia"... google it for some nasty ass pictures on the front page. Ahhhhhh.

LOLanne said...

I have a serious phobia of Serial killers. IDK, everytime I'm around some, I feel weird and uncomfortable, almost wanna freak out. ;)

Well... Actually I don't have a real phobia, lucky me.
