48 - That's actually what started my globophobia. I had seven older male cousins and my big brother gang up on me when I was around six or so. They all popped as many balloons in my face and on any part of my body that they could. And I've been terrified of balloons ever since. I'm trying so hard to get over it. I'm actually making progress! I used to run into another room screaming, or if people are playing a game that involves popping balloons, I would run as far away as I could plugging my ears so I couldn't hear them pop. Now, my workplace, a car dealership, has balloons EVERYWHERE, inside and outside and I am able to walk passed or even underneath them without screaming. I just keep an eye on them. Lol, I'm so pathetic. But hey, everyone has their own fears, and some are silly to others. I used to tease people who afraid of silly things like clowns until I realized that hey, I'm afraid of balloons! How much more silly is that than clowns? So I refrain from judgement.

It is actually pretty irrational when you think about it. I mean, it's a balloon. Other than the freak choking accident, they are pretty much harmless. However, I thank you for your support nonetheless :)

I'm not sure if I'm just misinterpreting (or should I say misinterpretating) this FML, but is she afraid of balloons that she screamed, or was it that she got so excited she fell down the stairs?

I'm lying in wait for the opportunity to Cage someone! Probably will do to my boyfriend when he returns from out of town. I can think of no better welcome home! Now if I only had stairs...

#25, I've noticed that when someone complains that a quality comment is getting thumbed-down, the fate of that comment often turns positive, but the complaint gets thumbed-down. I thank you for your sacrifice on behalf of my comment.

I, too, suffer from a fear of balloons. Which I openly admit is silly. Everyone has their own fears or phobias. Some are considered 'normal' fears, such as arachnophobia, and some may seem rather silly or ridiculous to others. However, people are genuinely afraid of them nonetheless. But you can't just sit there and tell me that you don't have any fears, silly or not.

I'm terrified of clowns the dark and skunks . My cousins made me watch IT when I was 5, been afraid since. I came face to face (just about) to a skunk when I was 7, scared the living day lights out of me. I have night blind issues with my eyes so that doesn't help the fear issue at all
