I just read that over 60 million people worldwide have a fear of Friday the 13th.
That made me think about the number 13 and how some high rises don't have 13th floors. In fact, there's actually a phobia, Triskaidekaphobia, of the number 13. It's a superstition and related to a specific fear of Friday the 13th, which also has a phobia named after it, paraskevidekatriaphobia.
I don't suffer from these phobias. But maybe you or someone you know does.
All of this got me thinking of phobias. What unique phobias have you been made aware of?
