You're lucky. I thought I only had arachnophobia, turns out I didn't. I just hate spiders. Then I thought I was scared of dogs, again, turns out I didn't, I just hate dogs. But now I'm positive I have glossophobia and I'm terrified of people raising their voices at me.
I don't really know what panic attacks are. I sort of do. I don't have them though I don't think. I just start crying like crazy and am desperate to just get out of there as fast as possible
Nah, you could not follow the rules and still pretty much be correct considering the fact that we don't even follow our own rules a good amount of the time.
Well, you have great English! Better English then a lot of people!
I have slight arachnophobia, major gelotophobia (fear of being made fun of), and atelophobia (fear of being forgotten or ignored/not good enough). Gelotophobia is the worse for me, I'm so scared of being made fun of that I'll change my entire personality for one person just to fit in.

I have ommetaphobia (fear of eyes) and it's really bad, although I've never known someone else with this phobia. They make me feel sick and I always panic. This also ties in with my slight Trypophobia (fear of holes) and Scopophobia (fear of being watched).
