Phobia anyone?
I have two main phobias and I want to find out what their offical phobia names are? So I went to check them out at Phobia List.

Heights: Acrophobia
Water: Hydrophobia or Ocean or sea: Thalassophobia

The site lists 100s, maybe 1000s of phobia names, my two fears actually are two of the easier ones to prounce.

So what do you call someone who is afraid of long words?

Hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia.

I am terrified of heights, but love the ocean. I could sit there for hours getting hypnotized by it.

It isn't that I don't like ocean. I like to look at it, I just dont like to be in it.
