Fear of cracks in leather or any other form of seating upholstery.

by Kaberi

I am sixteen and for as long as I can remember, I have been terrified about cracks in seating upholstery, namely leather. I remember being about three years old, travelling by rickshaw to my kindergarton and moving to the very other end of the seat because there was a crack. Even now, if there is a booth with a cracked seat, not only will I not sit there but it makes my heart feel tight and I get sweaty even if anyone else sits there. I don't know why it started but I really can't stand cracks. I've been trying to find the name for this phobia but there doesn't seem to be one, the closest I can find is a phobia for cracks in the pavements, but those don't bother me, it's just in seating. If anyone knows the name, please let me know.
