The other day the subject of phobias came up. If your phobia is severe enough, you can get disability for it. The discussion arose because someone we know seemingly develops phobias for no apparent reason then gets over them to be replaced by another. I did a little research, partly to be prepared with the next phobic problem and to see if maybe there is one we can get disability for. There are a LOT of phobias out there. Here are but a few.

Allodoxaphobia- Fear of opinions. I know a lot of people like this
Androphobia or Arrhenphobia- Fear of men.
