Word of the Day – Acarophobia
Reading Time: 1 minute
Ever get the creepy-crawlies (not to be confused with the heeby-jeebies) when you see a bunch of bugs squiggling and squirming around?
I believe everybody just answered yes.
That could be today’s word of the day:
1. An extreme fear of small insects.
2. A delusion that one’s skin is infested with bugs.
3. A fear of itching.
My hairs go on edge if there is a centipede within my peripheral vision, ugh, even the thought of it makes me cringe.
BONUS: selachophobia, fear of sharks.
