I’m just as confused as you are. Number eleven hippopotamstrosis quipidliphobia. Oh man, that’s a long word. Ironically, this phobia is the fear of long words. Let’s be honest.
Long words can be difficult to read. It becomes even more difficult when you have to read them out loud in front of your friends. Nobody ever wants to feel that embarrassed. Hey, don’t get scared. You can conquer this fear.
All you have to do is practice. You can start by reading long words in front of a mirror. In no time, you’ll be confident enough to face your fears. If you think these were weird, wait till you hear about the fear of beards. Clothing and mirrors.

Number six arithmophobia. If you hate mathematics, you’re definitely not alone. Math class can be boring and difficult. I mean, who wants to spend every morning calculating numbers and equations?

Sometimes they’ll cover it up with a bandage or a cloth and they promise never to look at it. Doctors think this could be because of an injury or bad event in the past. But the good news is this people of Aphylophobia can teach themselves to love every single part of their body. Your body deserves every single bit of love. It’s the best you can do.
