24. Too many, actually.
And real phobias, too--the kind that make you nearly mindless with terror, and all you want to do is GET AWAY.

Mine are:

Certain flying insects (bees, wasps, hornets, yellowjackets, beetles, mosquitoes, locusts, cicadas, etc.)

Getting too close to a semi-truck on the interstate. I will literally have a panic attack. This stems from a previous trauma where a big rig lost its brakes behind us while coming down a mountain, and was less than 2 feet from our bumper until he made it to the runaway truck sand ramp. We were boxed in and had nowhere to go, and he kept blaring his horn like he expected us to FLY out of his way or something. It was horrible.

Strange people knocking on my door. I won't answer the door at all if I look out the window and see someone unfamiliar.
