My speech 2017

Phobias, everyone has them. They are much more common than you would think. During this speech i’m going to explain 10 different examples of phobias ranging from the phobia Acrophobia (the fear of heights) to Anatidaephobia (the fear of being watched by a duck).

Have you ever heard of Somniphobia, hylophobia, Omphalophobia, Nomophobia, Ombro Phobia, Coulrophobia, Arithmophobia, Selenophobia, Genuphobia or Scriptophobia if not, then you’re about to!

Somniphobia, Somniphobia means fear of falling asleep. The word somini is Latin (meaning sleep) and phobia is Greek (meaning fear). Somniphobia is also related to Hypnophobia.

Hypnophobia,Hypnophobic is a fear of sleep or being hypnotized. Hypnophobic also makes you repeat nightmares or anxiety.

Omphalophobia, People that suffer from Omphalophobia are terrified of belly buttons- their own or, in some cases, other people's.

Nomophobia, Nomophobia means fear of being without your mobile phone or being unable to use your phone for some reason…

Frost bites my toes as I run bare footed to the door way. Dad passes me the rusty key and I try to open the door. I'm only getting colder and colder as I stand there. The door finally opens dad walks in with the lolly looking rat poison. He puts the pallets on top of the ugly and dusty cabinet. Everything is old and rusty the dirty couch folds into a bed. Damp sheets stretch out hanging on the retired wooden chairs. Ugly paint stands out like the statue of liberty. Even though the wallpaper is pretty gross and the dusty cabinet is old and creaky, I still love going there.
