How many phobias can you name?

claustrophobia - fear of closed places

I just bought a book of unusual words and there's a whole chapter on phobias so I thought I would see if any of my poetic pals know any phobias.

Here are 2 that I hope you don't have:

verbophobia
scriptophobia

Switchinofftheputerphobia - having to leave here and go out into the real world!
