  1. Fear of justice? I don’t even know how to process that one. and Fear of houses or being in a home. I have found I am the opposite, I was fearful of being WITHOUT a home or being HOMELESS. But I have to say, looking over these lists of phobias, that you have so graciously compiled for us, I could claim a few of these myself, if I wanted to πŸ˜‰

    1. Maybe I could claim one or two for myself as well, but I agree with you on fearful of being without a home/homeless and it is something I tend to think of still.

  2. Some good ones in here. I have a character in my current novel that may suffer from dementophobia…although, I wonder if this refers to being afraid of going insane, or fear of people who are insane. I had to look it up for a little more detail. It looks like this is the word for my character. Fear of going insane. Awesome, EM! Love this series.

    1. I read that dementophobia is the fear of going insane, but it’s always better to do double check. I’m happy that you’re enjoying the series, Mandie. ❀
