Blaargle, I feel all hot and dizzy now why can't I leave well alone!

HoneyDragon Tue 03-Sep-13 20:44:49

You lot never bloody learn.

Don't ever google it! Why would you?!

Thepowerof3 Tue 03-Sep-13 20:46:04

I know I know I'm like Pandora and her box

First Rule of Mumsnet:

Never google.

HTH grin

W. T. F?? Will my eyes ever recover. That's worse than blue waffle.

HumphreyCobbler Tue 03-Sep-13 20:47:42

I know how you feel. It is vile. I never had a problem before I googled it, this was YEARS ago too. I have avoided all threads since.

CatAmongThePigeons Tue 03-Sep-13 20:48:05

Why did you google it? grin

I wonder how many more will Google it, having seen it on the thread title

Ugh!!

FairOfFaceButFullOfWoe Tue 03-Sep-13 20:48:27

That was like a red rag to a bull! Just googled and now I'm hiding behind my hands!!!

Thepowerof3 Tue 03-Sep-13 20:48:34

Arggh

Thepowerof3 Tue 03-Sep-13 20:48:57

Your holey holey hands?

nobutts Tue 03-Sep-13 20:49:09

I have this. It is bizarre and can make me actually vomit! although I'm getting better at emptying my head of thoughts relating to certain images. I get caught unaware on toothpaste/deodorant/skin product adverts though and have to cover my eyes until DP says the coast is clear.

Thepowerof3 Tue 03-Sep-13 20:50:09

Someone on FB mentioned it was a fear of holes, something that my DM suffers from, didn't realise it'd burn my very eyes

samu2 Tue 03-Sep-13 20:50:30

I have this phobia too. Not just holes but lots of patterns too.

Makes me sick.

StickEmUp Tue 03-Sep-13 20:50:31

Fucking hell.

Thurlow Tue 03-Sep-13 20:51:49

Trypopophobia - fine.

Blue waffle? That might have ruined my sex life for good sad

Thanks rachyconks

Thepowerof3 Tue 03-Sep-13 20:52:22

I think I may have inherited her phobia as I feel terrible now but DH looked and wasn't phased at all

HoneyDragon Tue 03-Sep-13 20:52:34

I wonder how many Mnetters ave developed a phobia of holes as a result of these threads?

LEMisdisappointed Tue 03-Sep-13 20:53:01

I don't have trypophobia - but that made my fingers go all on edge, like

nobutts Tue 03-Sep-13 20:53:29

Yep patterns and certain clusters ( feel gross typing that word) of things. Its worse if it's organic/biological and also the more regimented or consistent the pattern. If I can rationalise it and place it in a broader context its not so bad..I sound mad I know

Thepowerof3 Tue 03-Sep-13 20:54:12

I don't think it's something you can just develop like that!

StickEmUp Tue 03-Sep-13 20:54:18

I might puke.

Jengnr Tue 03-Sep-13 20:54:25

I really like them. Apart from the spider ones and the actual gross things.

The rest is quite relaxing though.

chillinwithmyyonis Tue 03-Sep-13 20:54:38

So without me having to google, what is it?
