  1. Who has metrophobia? I want names. Haha That would not be a good fear for people who visit my site. For a horror author, I sure write a lot of poetry that is completely unrelated to horror.
    I find it interesting how many phobias have more than one name. Like just one name wouldn’t quite cut it. Good list, EM!

    1. I’m sorry, Mandie, but I don’t have names for you today. πŸ™‚ And I love your poetry! Each one of the are unique and beautiful. Same. I sometimes grew frustrated at how many phobias had two or more names! Thank you, Mandie. I trust that you’re having a great weekend. ❀
