Panphobia (Fear of Everything)

Imagine living in a world so hostile that you had to always be on guard. That guy sipping his coffee in the corner? Yeah, he works for the government, and he's been following you for the past few weeks. You see, they're on to you, and they're in the process of collecting evidence against you. What about those two people crossing the road? Did one of them just look at you and snicker? They're obviously talking about you, you know. Maybe they're plotting something!

As you could imagine, the life of a Panphobe (or Pantophobe, or Omniphobe), is very stressful. They're constantly on guard, they constantly feel threatened, and often their delusions can lead to a form of schizophrenia. One of the toughest phobias to treat, Panphobia confounds medical practitioners precisely because the fear is only in the mind of the beholder, and not something real.

Arachibutyrophobia (Fear of Peanut Butter Sticking to the Roof of the Mouth)

Yes, this is a thing. Apparently there are people who have the very specific fear of peanut butter sticking to the roof of their mouths. We would advise to simply avoid peanut butter altogether, but you never know when you might find yourself in need of a peanut-butter sandwhich.

The sooner this condition is diagnosed, the easier it is to cure with the help of advanced medications.
