Me too!!! The bumps on the back of leaves, barnacles on a boat or pier, ants... wasp nests, bee hives... Chills all over my body...I can't handle!! What is the name!

Does anyone know what this phobia is named??

I, too, suffer anxiety from seeing a large collection of just about anything. I was not aware that it was a real problem until lately. When I see a collection of things like: ants, coins, pebbles, etc; I begin to itch and rub my eyes extensively and then I end up spending a sleepless night because every time I close my eyes I see whatever the collection of objects was and then the anxiety begins again. I would really like to get more information on this phobia and to see if there is any type of treatment. I tried immersion therapy to see if it would help, yet I have not found it to be effective with overcoming the issue.

omg, finally someone else

I thought I was the only one felt that way. If i see a large cluster of small things such as moving ants, fish, anything of that nature, my stomach weakens to the point of me almost passing out. I always wondered of I was the only person suffered from this, but its good to know im not A freak.

ugh! clusters are revolting.

anytime i see a cluster i feel revolted. even the word cluster disgusts me. it gets worse when im anxious about something. my dad is the same he hates clusters too, so i must have inherited it from him. when i was a child there was a girl in my class with an ear infection she had clusters of tiny dry crusty scabs peeping out underneath a gause bandage and they seeped pus....agh im having a meltdown even now thinking of it. i think that was the start of it for me. my neighbour has a patio of clustered rocks sitting on their side, it revolts me.

No worries, I fear the exact same things. It's not as bad as to where I'm afraid of bubbles from soda but bugs, animals, shreds of things disgust me and I can't look at them.
