Thank God
by: Kaitlynn

I can't even say the word or describe how someone does it withough freaking out. I absolutely hate them and I'm happy that I'm not the only one. I hate when people even joke about it to me, but even passing papers in class in a hassle

ugh paper and fingers don't mix!
by: Brittany

Its nice to hear that there is a phobia for paper cuts I might be progressing in my fear of paper cuts but every time im in school i never hold the side edges of my papers or else I start to get very sweaty and my face gets really red, I start to feel queezy every time i think about them, the last time i got one my heart started racing i felt angered and terrified at the same time my hands were shaking. Even feeling them it burns and stings i feel like it will never go away that's one reason why i never raise my hand to pass out papers in school!

Thank goodness I'm not crazy!

I am actually home from school right now because in 2nd period my english teacher told someone to stop swinging paper because it could slice open someones eye... I have been nauseous and panicking ever since. This is my 2nd panic attack from the thought/ of papercuts. Last week I almost got one and I blacked out. It's so nice to hear other people have the same fear as me! Everyone I know thinks I'm crazy

Scared of Paper Cuts
by: Baylee

This fear of paper cuts makes it so hard in school! People tease me and fling paper in my face just to make me flip out! And when someone gets one, a 'friend' of mine always says "Show it to Baylee!" ughh!! I cringe when I say or think about paper cuts. I have trouble sleeping sometimes because I keep thinking about all these different scenarios where I could get a paper cut. And I'm afraid that I'll have a nightmare about paper cuts. Everybody laughs when I say I have a phobia of paper and some people don't even believe me! My absolute worst fear though... Is getting a paper cut in the eye. But I won't talk about it because it's sure to make me cry :'(. I'm glad to see that I'm not the only one with this terrifying fear! Does anybody have any idea how to get rid of it!?!?! The only suggestion I've had is give myself a paper cut so that I'll realize it's not that bad. But I have a strong feeling that that won't work!!!!!

Aaaah! Papercuts!!!!
by: ~Kristen:)

My only fear is papercuts. I'm not at all afraid of heights or chainsaws or even death. When my teachers give me a paper, I inspect the edges and, if they're ridged, I ask a friend to fold them back for me. I'm always cautious around paper that is crisp or that has a sharp crease. Other students make a joke out of me and run their fingers around the edges of paper. It drives me insane. When someone around me gets a papercut accidentally, I hyperventilate. It's craziness.

Paper Cut Freak
by: Anonymous

I have a fear of paper cuts and I thought I was weird. I always think about paper cuts and when I do I scratch my finger or apply pressure to it. Sometimes I lay in bed at night just thinking about the pain that they cause. I don't know what is wrong with me because paper cuts are not even that serious. I try not to think about them but no matter what my mind always drifts back to them. I haven't even had that many paper cuts but just the thought of them makes me crings.

Paper Cut Remedy
by: Anonymous03

My fear of paper cuts is linked to abuse by someone purposely cutting my body with paper. I just figured this out. I do not believe this a a phobia though. My entire body cringes and shudders when I think of getting a paper cut but it doesn't keep me awake at night.

Paper cuts are painful because sensitive areas below the skin are exposed to air. I bought a bottle of liquid bandage, the recommended solution for paper cuts.

Glad to see others like me

It makes me feel so much better seeing all these people that feel the same way I do when everyone around me thinks im crazy. The touch of paper can make my hands cringe, its even worse when I accidentally scratch a peice. I have to deal with it though and it has yet to have an impact since I just avoid touching the paper too hard. Paper cuts I can not stand and I blame the thought of them causing pretend pain in my fingers. Like when you think about the dentist and your teeth hurt. But with your hands.

tried hypnotherapy
by: Anonymous

I recently underwent hypnotherapy to help cure my fear of paper cuts. It's so bad that I imagine different paper cutting scenarios and it makes me cringe and shiver! It's really bad right before I sleep. If anyone knows of some ways to minimize this horrid phobia, please help!

by: sproho

whenever someone asks me my biggest fear, i say paper cuts. and then they laugh. but its nice to know im not the only person losing sleep over them. i got a paper cut under my nail once and nearly passed out from the panicking. just thinking about them makes my eyes water. and now i can't see the screen. great.

It makes me feel weak when I hear the word. I just cannot look at them, It's not so bad when I get one, they don't hurt, I just cannot look at them.

I am also afraid of paper cuts
by: angelina

I'm so much afraid of papercuts too. I can't breathe when someone says the word and I constantly am thinking that I'm going to get a paper cut and sometimes I can't even sleep without thinking I'm going to get one. The funny thing is, is that I've only gotten like one papercut and it wasn't even deep it's like controlling my life

OMG I have a phobia of paper cuts to. When I was little i got one and freaked out. Then a few years ago i got one and became terrified. Not to long ago I got one in the middle of my 4th period class and started screaming and my cousin looked at me like wtf. My reading teacher was like why are you screaming calm down and there was a big cut and I was freaked out. I was like crying. Do you know what its called?
